Sumter County Proposed Penny Tax List Released

Jul

2014

In November, Sumter County citizens will vote on a referendum to keep the penny tax going for another seven years once the first round expires in 2016.

Last week, the county council passed the finalized list of 28 proposed projects that includes $20 million going towards a new emergency 911 center, police station and fire department headquarters. County Administrator Gary Mixon says this will allow law enforcement to utilize a new digital communication system.

"It's an old Analog system, it's in desperate need of upgrading," said Mixon. "In a couple years the analog system will be obsolete so we need to change to a digital format and this is all part of that process."
