Commission to discuss TSPLOST

CHATHAM COUNTY, GA (WTOC) - Chatham County Commission Chairman Pete Liakakis will host a meeting Thursday night with mayors and city officials of Chatham County municipalities to discuss a Transportation Special Local Option Sales Tax.

TSPLOST proposes an additional one percent sales tax for transportation projects in our region.

Voters will have the final say. Chairman Liakakis is concerned that if the bill is voted down, Chatham County will have to come up with 30 to 50 percent matching funds to receive any money from the state for transportation improvements.
