Blount County taxpayers propose boycott

Dozens of Blount County taxpayers gathered at Logan's General Store to protest a new tax created by the Warrior City Council.

The city council voted to tax all residents living within the city of Warrior police jurisdiction.

The problem for some people is that the police jurisdiction extends one and a half miles into Blount County.

People who live in Blount County and are now going to be taxed say they are being taxed without representation.

Blount County District Attorney Tommy Rountree has said he is considering taking the city of Warrior to Court of the legality of this new ordinance.

Warrior's mayor contends the law is legal and that several other cities like Tuscaloosa have a tax currently in place.
