DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - A $35-million bond will help Dougherty County schools pay for improvement projects.
Voters okayed a Special Local Option Sales Tax for education that took effect in 2017.
In a formality on Monday, Dougherty County commissioners approved the school board's decision to get a bond to pay for starting some of the projects, as collections roll in during the E-SPLOST's six-year cycle.
Some of the projects include the Commodore Conyers College and Career Academy, a new gym at Dougherty High School and Lake Park Elementary School renovations.
The E-SPLOST expires in 2022.
