ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany and Dougherty County leaders are informing citizens and urging them to vote approve a one cent sales tax extension.

It's expected to generate up to $98 million over the next six years for capital improvements in the city and county.

City Commissioner Roger Marietta held a town hall at Darton College to review the proposed SPLOST projects.

He's optimistic it will pass and says it will result in improvements for many city departments.

"Increased public safety, it's going to mean better infrastructure for better development and it will improve tourism and economic development generally speaking and make it more likely we can attract jobs to Albany and Dougherty County," said Roger B. Marietta, City Commission Ward 4.
