The Franklin County Commissioners have voted to increase the county's sales tax.
According to The Columbus Dispatch, the commissioners voted 3-0 Tuesday to raise the sales tax a half cent per dollar beginning in 2014.
The increased tax is expected to generate about $100 million annually and will be used to help balance the county's budget, pay for building products and create an economic development fund, the paper reported.
