ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A South Georgia county laid out a $33 million wish list for an upcoming sales tax referendum.

For the first time, Dougherty County Commissioners looked at the proposed projects for SPLOST 7.

The county hopes to use part of its share of the sales tax revenue to improve roads, repair storm drains and buy new fire equipment.

"It's up to the commission how they want to develop the projects and what they want to improve for each of the projects," said County Administrator Richard Crowdis. "It's just recommendations at this point."

A public hearing on SPLOST 7 will be June 29 at the Civic Center. 

If voters approve the sales tax extension, the six-year-long SPLOST will take effect next April 1st.
