SPLOST V revenue short of what's predicted

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dougherty County Commissioners plan to vote next week to reduce the money they planned to give to the Albany Museum of Art because of a shortfall in sales tax revenue.

County Administrator Richard Crowdis told commissioners today the county will take in about 1.8-million dollars less from SPLOST 5 because people are spending less. To make up the difference, the county plans to cut money meant to help the museum move since its relocation is now on hold. Chairman Jeff Sinyard doesn't expect any other cuts.

"With the SPLOST numbers the projections are down significantly but they're not down as much as other parts of the state. They have now leveled off and that's something to give some optimism, we're starting to see some stabilization but people are still in a lot of pain," said Dougherty County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard.

Commissioners originally allocated three million dollars to relocate the Museum downtown.
