Bulloch County Commissioners are considering extending an existing Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) to be used for economic development and creating new jobs, said Bulloch County Manager Tom Couch. Commissioners met Thursday in a special called meeting to discuss this and other items, and voted to authorize Couch to organize a meeting with leaders from Brooklet, Portal, Register and Statesboro sometime within the next few weeks, Couch said Friday. The purpose of that meeting will be to discuss and consider "the call for a referendum on Nov. 8, 2011 to extend the current county Special Local Option Sales Tax that would expire in November 2013," he said.
