3 cent gas tax decision will be addressed at Tuesday's Suwannee commission meeting

Live Oak —

The Suwannee County Board of County Commissioners will decide if they should renew an ordinance that imposes a three cent local option gas tax on fuel purchased in the county at their regular monthly meeting Tuesday, May 20. The meeting will take place at the Judicial Annex Building, 218 Parshley St., in Live Oak, at 6:30 p.m.

If the board opts to renew the gas tax ordinance, the county will garner three cents from every gallon of motor fuel and special fuel sold in Suwannee County. 

According to County Administrator Randy Harris, funds that the county collects from the gas tax is used for road construction. 

If it passes, the ordinance will be in effect for a period of 25 years beginning Sept. 1.
