Tax-free shopping weekend is here. From Aug. 7-9, you can purchase qualifying school supplies, clothing, footwear, hurricane and emergency preparedness items, and Energy Star™ and WaterSense™ products without paying sales tax. Tax-free items may be purchased in stores, online or for curbside pickup.

We are still in the midst of hurricane season. This is the perfect time to refresh your emergency supply kit. According to Emergency Management Coordinator Brian Misner, “Everyone in the community should have an emergency supply kit … [The kit should have supplies] that can last for several days after a major emergency when power may be out or roadways are blocked with snow or debris.”
