vote voting placeBy a unanimous vote Tuesday night, the Lowndes County Commission voted to put a new SPLOST on the November ballot. This referendum will be to replace the expiring one-cent sales tax on January 1st of 2014.

The new SPLOST will largely go towards infrastructure projects, including replacing and fixing structurally deficient bridges and replacing the Withlacoochie water treatment plant.

Over the next six years, the new SPLOST is expected to bring in $150 million. $80 million of that will go to the city of Valdosta, $63 will go to the county, and the remainder will be split among the county’s other four cities.
