Nassau County Commissioners will hold a public hearing Monday night to discuss a 5-Cent Gas Tax which would generate approximately $1.6 million dollars in annual revenue, according to the public agenda.

The ordinance would restrict proceeds only to be used for the construction of new roads, the reconstruction or resurfacing of existing paved roads, or the paving of existing graded roads.

At the June 21st meeting, the Board approved to schedule a public hearing for Monday night at 6:00 p.m. to consider a resolution adopting the gas tax.
