The Jonesville Town Council discussed business license taxes at their regular monthly meeting on Monday. Frank Starnes, owner of Fire and Safety in Jonesville said he felt he shouldn't have to pay taxes based on his gross income as the majority if his business comes from a 100 mile radius including Kingsport and Sullivan County, where he already pays taxes. The council said they will conduct research on the matter this week.
The council also voted to pay $100 to sponsor a team of four in the drug court benefit tournament at Cedar Hill Country Club on April 22nd. The council adjourned until Monday May 2nd.
