HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) - Hopkins County, Kentucky officials are considering alleviating the county's budget deficit with a 1% occupational tax.
Judge-Executive Donald Carroll says the county's budget is down $800,000.
He says four cities in Hopkins County already have a 1.5% occupational tax, so this would not affect them.
The fiscal court was already considering raising property taxes. Both proposed increases will be evaluated again at future meetings.
