Municipalities across Tennessee are working together to push for a higher percentage of the state-shared sales tax. Germantown's and Collierville's boards of mayor and aldermen voted unanimously Feb. 13 to support the resolution to increase the percentage of the state's annual sales tax revenue that is distributed to municipalities. Other Memphis-area suburbs also voted to support the resolution including Arlington, Bartlett, Lakeland and Millington. During Feb. 13's Germantown board meeting, Mayor Mike Palazzolo said Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland will also sign on for support.
