Citizens throughout Fulton County will have the opportunity to vote in November 2021 on a five-year T-SPLOST referendum to fund transportation projects in municipalities throughout the county. The T-SPLOST referendum would extend the existing 0.75% (3/4 of a cent) sales tax approved by voters in November 2016.
All cities must present their lists of potential projects for T-SPLOST to Fulton County by June 2021. Fulton County will create a final list in July 2021. If authorized, the vote will take place in November 2021.
The City of Hapeville has compiled a list of potential projects that would be considered as transportation related and would meet the necessary criteria. With our current TSPLOST funds we have repaired sidewalks, resurfaced roads, installed new safety signage and we are currently under construction with new Silent Railroad Crossings. An updated street condition inventory is on the Community Services website for paving inquiries.
We invite citizens to give input on the proposed project list. Please forward comments or questions, to firstname.lastname@example.org. At the June 22nd council meeting, Mayor and Council will vote on submitting a proposed list of projects to be included in an IGA with the other Fulton County Cities.
