Tift Co. SPLOST vote

March 13, 2006

Tift County - The tax isn't new, just an extension of the current 1% tax that ends December 31st. That tax helped pay for almost $40-Million worth of projects in the past five years, including a new aquatic center in Tifton.

The extension would pay for improvements to the water system, allow construction and replacement of the Chula fire station, and allow for resurfacing, repair and maintenance of roads and bridges.

Earl Denham says, "It's not a new tax, it's a continuation of a tax. Tifton, TyTy, Omega and the County. It will go for six years."

Early voting began today. The SPLOST vote takes place next Tuesday March 21st.
