Tonight, Houston County leaders officially put the SPLOST back to a vote for next year.
At a special called meeting, Houston County Commissioners passed two resolutions to get the penny tax back on the ballot.
The first was an intergovernmental agreement between the three cities to make the tax valid for six years. The second resolution, put the item up for vote the same day as the presidential primaries, March 6, 2012.
"We've recently had some people from state government that was down who was very impressed by the cooperation between the three cities and the county, and it's not just on this issue. It's numerous issues across the board," says Chairman Tommy Stalnaker, Houston County Commission.
Chairman Stalnaker says he's proud all the cities in Houston County are presenting a united front. All three mayors, and the board of commissioners, are on board with the plan for the next SPLOST.
