During the work session before last week’s Guntersville City Council meeting, Councilman Randy Whitaker raised some concerns about the county's new school sales tax money going strictly toward brick and mortar school buildings.

The County Commission last fall passed a new countywide one-cent sales tax for schools. The proceeds will be divided among the county's school system based on enrollment. The big winners are the county system and the Albertville system, since they have more students than anyone else.
