Lee County and Leesburg now have an agreement

January 10, 2007

Lee County--   After a flap over how to split potential sales tax revenue, Lee County and Leesburg officials now have a deal.

Wednesday night, Leesburg City Council members approved an agreement passed Tuesday night by Lee County Commissioners.

The two groups initially disagreed over how to pay for a new water treatment plant in the city and who would control it. Under the final deal, Lee County offered 5-million dollars as long as the city reserved 200,000 gallons of water capacity reserved for county commercial, industrial and school development.

City councilman Bobby F. Wilson said members were satisfied with that agreement in a fairly quick meeting Wednesday night.

The sales tax extension referendum will be on the ballot in March.
