Valdosta - Lowndes County and the City of Valdosta have agreed on how to divide sales tax money.

In a special called meeting today, they agreed the county will receive 54% of the 183 million dollars the tax could produce, which will cover the cost of the new county courthouse and jail.

The cities will receive the other 46 percent.  "The scope of projects would be to approach finally a new municipal auditorium, the purchase of property for that, the design and a new fire station we are looking at." says Valdosta Mayor John Fretti.

They also approved the ballot which will be released to the public before the vote on September 18th.
