CatWalkChatt – Walker County and its cities settle sales tax split

After nearly a year of debate, Local Option Sales Tax negotiations are finally settled between the governments of Walker County and its five cities.

Walker County sole commissioner Bebe Heiskell announced the news with relief during her public meeting Thursday afternoon, Sept.12.

“I have agreed to the cities’ request,” she said. “Chickamauga signed it last night. It’s over. It is done.”

LaFayette and Chickamauga were the last to agree to the final proposal — with LaFayette formally signing the county’s offer during the city council’s monthly meeting Monday, Sept. 9, and Chickamauga doing the same Wednesday, Sept. 11.

The other three cities, including a small portion of Fort Oglethorpe, previously had agreed to the settlement.

“It’s a done deal,” Rossville mayor Teddy Harris said.
