Placeholder Image
The Georgia Municipal Association, a lobbying group for the interests of Georgia cities, laid out several priorities for the 2015 session of the state General Assembly during a meeting Monday night in Buford with local government officials. Tom Gehl, director of governmental relations for the GMA, said legislation is likely to be introduced that will provide more accountability to how the state collects and distributes tax revenue. Gehl said there have been instances where special purpose local option sales tax revenue has been misdirected to the wrong counties.
