Sales tax opposition meeting is Monday

Published 5:17 pm Friday, May 17, 2013

A group opposed to a proposed sales tax in Andalusia has scheduled a meeting at 7 p.m. on Mon., May 20, at Harper’s Diner.

The public is invited to attend.

Chris Lawrence, Janna McGlamory, Marianne Harper Dubose and Jason Jewell are listed as contacts for information about the meeting.

City officials were notified of the meeting in an email to the city clerk just before 4 p.m. Friday.

Mayor Earl Johnson said late Friday that he and city council members had not been individually invited, and that they were already scheduled to be in Montgomery at a League of Municipalities meeting on Monday night.

Johnson said that under most conditions, he would return to Andalusia for a meeting of this kind. However, he and council members will be accepting a statewide quality of life award on behalf of the city Monday night.
