Richland County will spend up to $50,000 to inform voters about projects that would be funded by the proposed penny-on-the-dollar sales tax for transportation.
Tuesday, the council gave a final vote of approval on the allocation, reversing course from two years ago, when members declined to pay for voter materials.
In other action, the council delayed until September a discussion of allowing the recreation commission to take on $5 million in extra debt for park maintenance. Under its rules, only items considered time sensitive were taken up Tuesday, a cleanup session before the council takes the month of August off.
