Essex County prepares to OK sales-tax hike


Douglas said County Manager Daniel Palmer, County Treasurer Michael Diskin, County Attorney Daniel Manning III and others worked hard getting all the facts and figures together to justify the sales-tax increase.

“They put a lot of work into this. So those guys are to be commended to make this happen, and I appreciate that.”

Douglas said he has heard some business owners might come to the meeting to speak against the increase.

“I’ll open it up for public comment. We want to hear what they have to say.”
