BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The Beaufort County Council voted unanimously in February to form a Capital Project Sales Tax Commission.

Along with Beaufort County residents' input, the six member commission will compile a list of Capital Improvement Projects that need to be completed throughout the county.

After an initial meeting, several public hearings will be scheduled allowing the public to weigh in on what projects they believe are necessary.

After the list of projects is made, an ordinance will be drafted and sent to the County Council, and if the ordinance is adopted, it will appear on the November ballot.

Beaufort County taxpayers will then vote whether to approve the sales tax for the specific projects.

The appointed members are Mike Covert of Bluffton, Craig Forrest of Sun City, Scott Graber of Port Royal, Scott Richardson of Hilton Head Island, Jeffery Robinowich of Bluffton and Bill Robinson of Beaufort.

The first meeting is scheduled for April 10 at 5 p.m. in Beaufort County Council Chambers at 100 Ribaut Road.

The public is invited to the first meeting, and they can also watch the meetings live on The County Channel or online at www.bcgov.net.
