Bibb School Board working on new E-SPLOST draft
The current penny sales tax ends in December. School officials say it raised about 144-million dollars. That money funded renovation projects across the district. The board hopes residents will vote to continue the E-SPLOST tax so it can keep making improvements.
“A new facility for Northeast High and Appling Middle. There’s a new elementary school that’s listed, if needed. And then there’s district-wide renovations that are needed. That’s things like new roof, finishes, paint,” explains Jason Daniel, the Executive Director of Capital Programs for Bibb Schools.
We’re told the draft for the new education penny sales tax isn’t different from the current one. The board hopes to have it ready by May 21st. It will then hold public hearings to answer the community’s questions. Citizens will vote on the proposal in November.
