N.C. county to add transit referendum to ballot

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — In a 5-2 vote, Orange County Commissioners agreed to call a November referendum on whether their community should have a half-percent sales tax surcharge to support public transit, according to The Herald Sun.

The decision comes just under a year after Durham called the Triangle’s first transit referendum, approving its own half-percent sales tax surcharge with a 60% majority. Durham County is waiting to impose the tax until after similar measures are approved in both Orange and Wake counties. For the full story, click here.
