Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax revenues are up slightly says Kelley Dial, finance committee chair for the Cartersville City Board of Education. Dial reported during Thursday’s work session revenues for the July collection month were at $330,077, up from $315,202 in June.

“... It’s better than the last three or four months and it looks like we’re edging up to where we need to be,” Dial said.

The system has faced a downturn in revenues over the past year and board members have pointed to the April explosion at Georgia Power’s Plant Bowen as a contributing factor. For example, in August 2012 the system collected $407,812 in SPLOST revenue.

In other news, the board on Monday will vote to continue its contract with Service Solutions, who oversees custodial needs.

The board will hold its regular business session Monday at 6 p.m. in the central office boardroom.
