The Clay City Council on Monday voted to participate in the 2014 Severe Weather Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday, choosing to relinquish the city’s two cents sales for storm-related purchases.
The sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, and runs through midnight on Sunday, Feb. 23, 2014.
Examples of items included in the sales tax holiday are batteries, weather radios, cell phone chargers, tarps, flashlights, first aid kits and plywood.
According to the Alabama Department of Revenue, the cities of Trussville and Pinson have not yet approved of participating in the sales tax holiday.
The sales tax holiday was first held in 2012.
