BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

The Sales and Use Tax is back on the ballot for November, according to Bladen County Manager Greg Martin.

The Sales and Use Tax was rejected by voters in May. If passed, the Sale and Use Tax referendum would cost Bladen County residents one-fourth of a penny per dollar in addition to all other State and Local Sales and Use Taxes.

The funds go to the school system , who, earlier this year, released a video explaining their need for the additional funding

At the Bladen County Commissioners meeting, Commissioner Charles Ray Peterson made a motion to put the Sales and Use Tax Referendum back on the ballot for November.

The motion passed with two "No" votes from both Commissioner Delilah Blanks and Commissioner Mike Cogdell.
