The county’s current Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) will end on March 31, 2019 and the Board of County Commissioners is preparing plans to ask the voters to continue the SPLOST for an additional six years beginning April 1, 2019 and ending March 31, 2025. The Board has tentatively scheduled an election for May 22, 2018.

The county met with all the five cities located within the county on September 19, 2017 to begin the process to determine their capital needs and again on October 16, 2017. The county and the five cities have tentatively agreed upon distribution amounts and projects.
