Occupational tax is no longer being considered

An occupational tax that was proposed in Pike County is now off the table.

County officials said earlier this month that with aging equipment and newer vehicles needed, their budget will be strained.

Ideas floated around during a meeting in February included layoffs and the occupational tax.

Officials also rejected a new tax last year.
