ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Leaders from 14-counties in southwest Georgia will meet Monday night to identify the top transportation priorities for our region.

They've got to work together to make a potential new revenue stream for transportation projects pay off.

A new law creates 12 special tax districts. Elected officials in each of the regions will discuss ideas at a regional roundtable and develop a list of projects which could be funded by a regional sales tax.

The voters will then decide whether to approve the tax for ten years.

"At the the end of the day the roundtable will decide do we want to go forward with this and have a plan to present to the voters or do we want to go in a different direction," said Jeff Sinyard, Dougherty County Commission Chairman.

Georgians will vote on the tax in 2012.
