County planning for early splost extension
Placeholder Image
Bulloch County Commissioners and city representatives met Wednesday to begin finalizing details regarding fund allocation for future Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) dollars. The group of local leaders gathered for a luncheon at the North Main Annex to review the estimated contributions a 2013 SPLOST would yield, if voters decide to approve an extension to the one-cent sales tax this November. An extension, which would allow a continuation of the tax for a period of six years ending in 2019, will result in more than $70 million to spur economic development and provide continued quality services to county residents, said Bulloch County Manager Tom Couch.
