As Houston County continues to propel forward, county commissioners seek to extend SPLOST for an additional six years, estimating up to $145 million in funds by 2024. The Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) is a county-wide 1% sales tax used to fund economic development, public safety, recreation, transportation, water and sewer improvements and general capital obligations. Plans for the 2018 SPLOST have already been proposed. Revenue from SPLOST allows county government to fund county-wide public safety upgrades, construction of recreation facilities, transportation improvements, and economic development without raising property taxes.
