With just a few weeks until the deadline to get final ballot language to the Pickens County Elections Office, Pickens Commission Chair Rob Jones sat down to discuss the most up-to-date SPLOST numbers. 

A SPLOST question will appear on the November 2019 ballot, along with several key local races. By law, local leaders must provide voters with a general description of how SPLOST money will be spent (specific projects don’t have to be detailed in the ballot language, but projected SPLOST revenues must be separated into categories such as “Road, Street, Bridge Projects.”) Leaders can opt for a five-year SPLOST, with revenue projections of $30 million, or a six-year SPLOST, with revenue projections of $37 million.
