Hall County postpones SPLOST vote until March

POSTED: July 10, 2014 8:13 p.m.

Hall County has officially postponed a vote on a new round of special purpose local option sales tax until March.

Local government officials were set to approve an agreement on SPLOST VII in the coming weeks, with the Hall County Board of Commissioners scheduled to approve a resolution July 24 that would officially put the tax to a vote this fall.

Officials are still eyeing a July 1, 2015, date for the tax to take effect since the current SPLOST VI expires next year. The latest revenue projection for SPLOST VII, which would last five years, stands at $158 million.

Officials said they wanted to solicit more public feedback on what projects to fund through the 1 percent sales tax after turnout lagged at three public input meetings last month.
