Tobar hand delivered check to City Hall

Cairo City Manager Chris Addelton reported this week that Grady County Administrator Carlos Tobar hand delivered a check to City Hall Thursday for sales tax proceeds the county owes to the city.
The check was for $212,574 the city manager said. City officials are also requesting from the county an additional $44,670.60, which the city contends was paid out to special interest projects including Roddenbery Memorial Library, the City of Whigham, and the Grady General Hospital Authority, without the city’s consent.
County commissioners instructed Tobar last Tuesday to pay the $212,574 that the county’s auditor Tom Carmichael determined was owed to the city from the 2008 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.
