Peach County TSPLOST

Peach County TSPLOST

The transportation system throughout Peach County is the single most important and expensive infrastructure system to build and maintain. Our county roads and city streets are used daily by the traveling public. The construction and maintenance of this transportation system is vitally important to the quality of life of the residents of our community, and its attractiveness to industry and commerce. The residents of Peach County, including those who live in the City of Byron and City of Fort Valley, could take advantage of the Single-County Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST) for addressing multiple transportation concerns. From paving and resurfacing numerous streets in the City of Byron, City of Fort Valley, and the unincorporated area of Peach County. One hundred percent of the funds that are collected by this initiative will be spent on transportation projects in this community.

 

Peach County Chairman Martin Moseley, Mayor Michael Chidester, and Mayor Barbara Williams have signed an Intergovernmental Agreement that clears a hurdle for a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax for Transportation purposes to go before voters. On June 8th, the Peach County Board of Commissioners met formally to call for the item to be placed on the November 2, 2021, ballot.

 

All Peach voters will consider a 1¢ sales tax that would authorize transportation projects like streets and roads, overpasses, traffic control improvements, and more. The proceeds from this 5-year T-SPLOST is projected at a maximum $27 million. Peach County, the City of Byron, and Fort Valley have agreed to share the funds with a 62.93% (Peach County) 16.76% (City of Byron), 17.23% (City of Fort Valley) 1.89% (City of Warner Robins), 1.19% (City of Perry) split and selected projects that are important to each jurisdiction.
