The cities of Auburn, Bethlehem, Carl, Statham, Winder and Braselton have received checks from Barrow County following an accounting oversight that the Barrow Journal reports cost the municipalities more than $324,000 in sales tax proceeds

According to the Journal, the error was due to a change in the distribution formula set to kick in toward the end of the six-year SPLOST cycle.
