Tuesday night, the Peachtree City Council will discuss what projects the city might fund with a proposed countywide two-year sales tax, which will be up for a vote this November.
If approved, the sales tax would provide the city with an additional $13.4 million in revenue. Several on council have already said they would like to see the funds cover the city’s road and cart path resurfacing budget for several years. Other ideas bandied about included earmarking SPLOST funds to expand part of the cart path system or perhaps reducing the city’s millage rate.
If the sales tax fails at the ballot box, the city will need to find another way to raise the $1.5 million needed for road and path resurfacing, which was removed from the annual budget after the last countywide SPLOST was implemented in 2004.
The workshop meeting will convene at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
