The Marietta Daily Journal – Marietta City Council OKs 2016 SPLOST list

MARIETTA — The City Council voted 6-1 Wednesday night, with Philip Goldstein opposed, to approve a potential list of projects to be funded by the 2016 special purpose local option sales tax voters will have a chance to approve in Nov. 4.

The list, which totals about $57 million, includes several road maintenance projects.

Mayor Steve Tumlin said the SPLOST is the only source of funding the city receives that can be used toward transportation projects.

“Money for maintenance and the support for getting rid of potholes used to come from the state, but now the SPLOST basically took that over,” Tumlin said.
