Albany- City commissioners have gotten over $258 million in project requests ranging from museum upgrades to road improvements.

Commissioner Tommie Postell says he doesn't expect a final vote at Monday's meeting, but thinks it will give commissioners another chance to make sure they are fairly dispensing the taxpayers money.

"SPLOST doesn't mean anything until the vote is in, so what we're trying to do is try to make sure that everyone is treated fairly, and they can see a need for this because there is a need for the city and the county to have these funds," says Postell.

Postell says the final list of proposed SPLOST projects must be completed and submitted to the state by September 2nd. Monday's meeting will begin at 10 AM.
