Tentative LOST proposal worked out

August 28, 2022–6:00 p.m.


Floyd County Manager Jamie McCord, Rome City Manager Sammy Rich, and Cave Spring Mayor Rob Ware have reached a recommended LOST distribution proposal

The proposal will be presented to the Joint Services Committee within the next thirty days.

During this time, attorneys representing all three entities will continue to work on a plan for mediation or arbitration should the need arise. Negotiators have been working to hammer out a deal on how the sales tax revenue will be divided up between the three entities, as required every 10 years by state law.
