SPLOST - Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax

SPLOST IV

The Henry County Board of Commissioners approved an intergovernmental agreement with the Cities of Hampton, Locust Grove, McDonough, and Stockbridge. By entering into an intergovernmental agreement, Henry County, together with the four cities, is permitted to collect the sales tax for a period of six years, rather than the five year limit that would be the cap without such an agreement in place.  In addition, the County and cities were together able to decide how the funds would be allocated, resulting a 75/25 split between the County and its four municipalities.  Of the 25 percent that will go to the cities, Hampton will receive 11.64 percent, Locust Grove will receive 8.99 percent, McDonough will receive 36.74 percent, and Stockbridge will receive 42.64 percent.

Based on a revenue projection of $190 million, Henry County’s portion of 75 percent will yield $142.5 million for county projects.  This includes approximately $42.5 million in county-wide, tier 1 projects, including the following:

911 Radio Communications System for the County $7 million
Ambulances $380,000
2nd Building of Southern Crescent Technical College* $5 million
DOT Construction Equipment Replacement $450,000
Jail Renovation/New Pod Design $1.5 million
Airport FBO $1 million
Animal Control Facility Improvements and Equipment $100,000
30 Police Patrol Vehicles $1,406,806
Fire Stations (3 new) $6 million
Fire Department Capital Equipment $2.1 million
Probate Court Building Improvements $220,000
Police Station (North end of the County - Fairview area) $4 million
New Interchange on I-75 South of SR 155** $5.5 million
SPLOST Program Management $3.9 million
Sewer to Airport $2 million
Sewer to Fairview $2 million

The balance of approximately $100 million will be divided equally among the five commission districts, providing each one $19,988,639.00 to allocate for capital and transportation projects, according to their district’s needs and priorities.  To view a complete list of all the SPLOST IV projects, please click below:
