Pike County, along with nine other counties in the region, will vote July 31 on the Transportation Investment Act, or T-SPLOST, to fund state transportation projects in the area. Projects include road widening, maintenance, traffic operational upgrades, bridge improvements and new roads. Pike County, along with Upson, Spalding, Meriwether, Butts, Carroll, Coweta, Heard and Troup counties, will decide whether or not to approve the 10-year collection of a one-cent sales tax in the upcoming election.
Commissioner The Donald Collins really pushed the courthouse SPLOST. In the PJR yesterday he is pushing the T-SPLOST for road improvements. Maybe overspending on the courthouse renovations sucked away the funds for the "road issues." The Donald is running again to remain on the BOC. I think The Donald should have a bumper sticker in his support, short and simple;
No George. I need about a thousand more for where I would like to put them. I still haven't thanked him enough for his contribution of Teen Challenge. I would like to put that tax free facility in the same place with the bumper stickers.
