Thomasville SPLOST still uncertain

May 9, 2006

Thomasville- Still no agreement between Thomas County and Thomasville on how to spend revenue from a proposed local sales tax extension. Thomas County commissioners failed to vote Tuesday on the intergovernmental agreement.

Thomasville wants the county to spend more than 2.5 million dollars on a county wide radio system. Both will continue to work towards an agreement, but an agreement isn't necessary.

"The library is a county wide function, the recreational system is a county wide function and of course the courthouse would be a county wide function as well and with or without an agreement those can be done."Bruce Warren , Thomas County attorney.

Without an agreement the city would have little say on the county's decisions. County commissioners are expected to meet before the 17th so the SPLOST referendum can make the July 18th ballot.
