Your Pennies At Work!

Have you ever wondered where our county gets the money it uses to pave roads, renovate parks or upgrade ambulances? The answer is simple: these are your SPLOST funds at work!

What is SPLOST?

Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax = an optional 1% sales tax used to fund capital outlay projects proposed by the Liberty County government and participating municipal governments.

Although there are many misconceptions about SPLOST, the truth is that these funds are necessary to support growth and development in Liberty County!

Vote YES for SPLOST on the November 2022 ballot to ensure your penny is well spent!
