Representatives from the City of Rome, Floyd County, and Cave Spring will once again try to hammer out a deal for the distribution of the local sales tax revenues.

The Local Option Sales Tax Committee will meet on Wednesday in the Sam King Room at Rome City Hall, starting at 2 p.m.

Although no deal has been reached yet, both County Manager Jamie McCord and Rome City Manager Sammy Rich remain hopeful. Wednesday’s meeting could be the last opportunity to reach a deal.

If there is no compromise by Friday, the matter goes to arbitration.
