The vote isn’t for another year and a half, but the decision on whether to approve a penny tax for roads is on local leaders’ minds.
County commissioners listened to three citizens March 7, who took the podium to talk about local road issues and the potential transportation sales tax, which is set to go before voters Aug. 21, 2012.
If approved, the sales tax would bring in an estimated $1.4 million annually for Madison County road projects. The county currently takes in about $650,000 a year on its current special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST).
