On November 6, 2012, Edgecombe County approved the ¼ cent sales tax referendum. The sales tax proceeds will enable Edgecombe Community College to move forward with the planning, design, and construction of its top two priorities:
ECC serves over 14,000 students per year in more than 100 degree, diploma, and certificate programs and more than 1200 continuing education courses. The college is providing programs and job training to promote economic recovery for all Edgecombe residents. Because of enrollment growth over the years, additional classroom and lab space is needed.
The ¼ cent sales tax = $12.50 per citizen over the course of one year. No food, gas, motor vehicle, or agricultural equipment is subject to this sales tax.
