Savannah seeks $190 million from SPLOST | savannahnow.com

Chatham County residents approved the first 1 percent sales tax for capital improvement projects on June 11, 1985. Since then, voters have extended the special purpose local option sales tax six times to pay for roads, drainage improvements, cultural centers and recreational facilities.

On Tuesday, voters will again determine whether the tax continues.

County and city leaders estimate the six-year tax would raise at least $370 million. The funds would go toward the completion of new projects, as well as previously approved ones that need additional funding.
