State of “The Penny” (Richland Transportation Tax)

In April 2013, Richland County Council appointed the Transportation Penny Advisory Committee (TPAC). The function of the TPAC is to review, comment, on, and provide recommendations to Richland County Council regarding the Council’s use of the one-cent additional sales tax that voters approved in the November 2012 referendum.The TPAC is composed of 15 Richland County citizens representing Arcadia Lakes, Blythewood, Columbia, Eastover, Forest Acres, Irmo, and unincorporated areas of Richland County.TPAC members are volunteers who serve without compensation. Their terms of service range from three to five years. The TPAC meets on the third Monday of most months at 5:00pm in the fourth floor conference room of the Richland County Administrative Offices at 2020 Hampton Street. TPAC meetings are open to the public.
