Tennessee retailers will not collect sales tax on more than 150 different items during the 12th annual sales tax holiday this weekend.

From July 28 through July 30, shoppers can save nearly 10 percent on clothing, school supplies and computers, as students prepare for the back-to-school season. State and local taxes will not be collected on clothing, school and art supplies that cost $100 or less per item and computers that cost $1,500 or less.

The Department of Revenue wants to remind people that this weekend of savings is not exclusive to students or Tennesseans. Anyone who wants to shop in Tennessee during the last weekend of July will be eligible to save on sales tax.

This year, the sales tax holiday begins Friday, July 28 at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday, July 30 at 11:59 p.m.

In a split 3-2 vote, the Crossville City Council has narrowly approved spending more than $16,000 for work that's already been done at Garrison Park. According to the Crossville Chronicle, Councilman Danny Wyatt voted against the amendment, citing what he called "perfectly good" fencing that was ripped out. But Crossville City Manager Greg Wood noted that the project called for an open area around the splash pad and field. Taking the fencing down was one of the conditions of the state grant, he said.
