Savannah alderman hosted special town hall to discuss SPLOST

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Mayor Pro Tem and District 1 Alderman Van Johnson will host a special town hall meeting on the proposed Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, SPLOST.

The meeting was held Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Temple Of Glory Community Church on Stiles Ave., and focused on future proposed SPLOST projects in the first District.

SPLOST has funded more than $1.3 billion worth of projects in Chatham County since voters approved the first referendum in 1985.

Voters rejected a smiliar t-splost tax when it was on the ballot in July of 2012. That money would have been used to pay for road projects.

The public can find out more about SPLOST by visiting www.savannahga.gov/splost.
