Curry County could be home to a new sales tax as soon as this year.

The Curry Coastal Pilot reporting budgetary problems have prompted the citizen's committee to recommend the tax to county commissioners.

On Monday, commissioners said that the county must cut about $2 million from its $5 million general fund budget by July.

Officials also say the new tax could make the may ballot.
