The current SPLOST expires on Dec. 31, 2015, and Lee said holding a referendum during a general election makes the most financial sense if the county hopes to extend the tax for another four years uninterrupted.
Lee said a special election next year would cost the county about $500,000.
Cobb voters approved the current four-year SPLOST by just 79 votes in 2011. It is expected to collect $492 million to help update existing infrastructure.What do you think, would you like to see a SPLOST referendum on the ballot in November? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
