Sales tax funds fall short for road, drainage work | The Augusta Chronicle

Fifty-million dollars from the next special purpose local option sales tax won’t go very far toward repairing Augusta’s aging roads and drainage system.

Engineering Director Abie Ladson said most of the $50 million in projects included on a list going for Augusta Commission approval Tuesday will require additional funds from the Transportation Investment Act, the stormwater fee or some other source to complete.

“Basically, I was given $50 million to work with, so I had to work with what I had,” Lad­son said.
