County Manager Meadows shares SPLOST information

Let’s talk about the Special Purpose Local Sales Tax (SPLOST). The vote to approve the 2024 SPLOST is rapidly approaching and I want to share information with you that will help you to be a more informed voter.

The SPLOST has been voted on, and approved, in Appling County since 1995. Our county, to include the City of Baxley, has realized over $65,000,000.00 in total revenue. This revenue has been used for many projects and improvements that we have all enjoyed. Without SPLOST, to complete these projects, we would have had to raise the county millage rate significantly which raises property taxes.
