F’ville Council not sure it wants new sales tax vote | The Citizen

The Fayetteville City Council is not jumping for joy at the prospect of a new sales tax put forward by the Fayette County Commission.

The county wants the tax referendum on this fall’s ballot to pay for stormwater construction and repair projects.

Fayetteville has agreed to have an infrastructure project list developed in case council members decide this summer to have the city participate in the proposed two-year Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) initiated by the County Commission.

During the discussion at the May 2 meeting, three council members expressed some reservation with having the city participate in the SPLOST initiative.
