Thomasville-  Thomasville's mayor encouraged voters to approve the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax on the upcoming ballot.

Rose City Mayor David Lewis told members of the Business Action Council they should vote yes on the SPLOST referendum because the Thomas County Courthouse is in desperate need of repairs along with city streets.

"The courthouse is in dire need of repairs, the productivity of county workers is compromised by the lack of space, the radio which is a safety initiative is certainly a needed thing," said Thomasvillle Mayor, David Lewis.

Money from the city's portion would be combined with money from the Department of Transportation to pave all of Thomasville's dirt roads.
