June 15--  The court date to settle the dispute between the Toombs County Commission and the county’s municipalities regarding the distribution of local sales tax revenue has been set for Friday, July 20th at 10 a.m. at the Toombs County Courthouse.  Judge H. Gibbs Flanders, chief judge in the Dublin Judicial Circuit, will hear the case.   

Toombs County attorney Howard Kaufold filed the petition on May 10th asking that a judge from outside the Middle Judicial Circuit hear the case and make the final decision on how the money should be split. 

Toombs County is seeking an increase in their share of sales tax revenue and has been unable to reach an agreement in previous meetings with the towns involved.
