An Albany-Dougherty County senior judge says it’s likely time to nudge Peach County officials into the courtroom to settle the division of a penny sales tax.

It’s four months past the Dec. 31 deadline in which Peach County and the cities within it were supposed to decide how to divide proceeds from the local option sales tax for the next 10 years. A new arbitration phase state legislators added in the decennial renegotiations has allowed the county and cities to delay the decision.

“The last I heard, they were attempting to resolve this among themselves,” said Judge Lorring Gray. “But given the passage of time … I may need to light a fire.”
