SPLOST VII Another $150 Million FUBAR Or Real Deal

VALDOSTA — With SPLOST VII on the ballot come November, Valdosta City Manager Larry Hanson outlined the city’s proposed spending plan last Tuesday at the City Council’s work session.

If SPLOST VII passes, it will run six years, from April 1, 2014 through March 30, 2020. It is estimated that in these six years, SPLOST VII would bring in $150 million, to be allocated to Valdosta, Lowndes County, Hahira, Remerton, Dasher and Lake Park, with Valdosta receiving 53.35 percent, or roughly $80 million.

Is this another government FUBAR or the real deal? I see nothing about car for animals, though this is a neglected county responsibility. I also see no reference to ticket revenue on I-75 or property taxes that are very high in this county.

A lot of people no longer trust government officials and government wonders why SPLOST VII is likely to be defeated like the previous government and Valdosta Daily Times sponsored tax issue!$150 million in new taxes is a lot of money anytime, but especially so, when the local economy is still suffering.
