SPLOST IV Committee Announces Project Recommendations For Proposed SPLOST IV Program

The SPLOST Committee wrapped up its 14-week series of meetings Thursday night, and announced the list of projects they recommend the Henry County Board of Commissioners include on an upcoming November referendum for a potential SPLOST IV program for Henry County.

Over the course of the last 14 weeks, the SPLOST IV Committee has taken public input and worked closely with County staff to formulate the list of recommended projects.   Though it is subject to change by the Board of Commissioners, the list is currently based on projected revenues of $190 million and a 75/25 split between the County and its four municipalities.  That leaves $142.5 million for the County’s share.  Using that figure as a guide, committee members first established a list of county-wide projects to recommend to the Commissioners as high priorities.  These county wide projects totaled nearly $36 million, or about 25 percent of the County’s portion, and include the following: 
- 911 Radio Communications System for the County and Cities $6 million
- Ambulances $380,000
- 2nd Building of Southern Crescent Technical College $5 million
- DOT Construction Equipment Replacement $2.2 million
- Jail Expansion $5 million
- Airport FOB $1 million
- Animal Control Facility Improvements and Equipment $100,000
- Replacement Police Patrol Vehicles $1.4 million
- Replacement Fire Stations (Stations 2 and 8) $4.5 million
- New Interchange on I-75 South of SR 155 $5.5 million
- SPLOST Management $4.75  million

The committee then recommended that the balance of $106.6 million be divided equally among the five commission districts, providing each one $21.3 million to allocate for either capital or transportation projects according to their district’s needs and priorities.  To view a list of all the SPLOST IV projects recommended by the Committee, including details about the district projects, please visit http://www.co.henry.ga.us/SPLOST/SPLOSTIV.shtml.
The Henry County Board of Commissioners will consider these recommendations and make any changes to the estimated revenues and corresponding project list on or before August 2, 2013. The proposed SPLOST IV referendum will then be submitted to the Secretary of State’s office for approval to be placed on the November general election ballot.  If approved by voters at that time, the SPLOST IV program would continue the penny sales tax for another six years.
