Mayor Luttrell Vetoes Proposed County Sales Tax
(Memphis) Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell has vetoed the proposed half cent sales resolution proposed by Comm. Mike Ritz.
In a statement, Luttrell said, “I felt the commission’s action was premature. As I’ve stated many times, I believe we must review all options regarding the school budget before initiating a tax increase.”
Shelby County Commissioners can still override the mayor’s veto if at least eight of the 13 commissioners vote to do so.
Mike Ritz says he believes he has enough votes to overturn the veto.
