Trussville to participate in severe weather preparedness sales tax holiday

By Gary Lloyd

TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Council last week voted to participate in the 2014 Severe Weather Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday, choosing to relinquish the city’s municipal sales and use tax for storm-related purchases.

The sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Feb. 21, and runs through midnight on Sunday, Feb. 23.

Examples of items included in the sales tax holiday are batteries, weather radios, cell phone chargers, tarps, flashlights, first aid kits and plywood.

The Clay City Council voted in October to participate in the sales tax holiday. Pinson will also participate in the sales tax holiday.

The sales tax holiday was first held in 2012.
