Public meeting planned in Dougherty Co. about SPLOST Six

Splost VI Projects

The meeting will take place at 2nd Mount Zion Baptist Church located at 1010 Old Pretoria Road on Thursday October 14, 2010 at 6 p.m.

Commissioner Gloria Gaines says this is an open forum where people can ask questions and get clarification on proposed SPLOST 6 projects on the November ballot. "We're trying to get people information on what SPLOST 6 truly is and what they're really voting for. They need to understand the projects and that's what we're going to talk about," says Gaines.

Commissioners say the goal of the session is to explain why certain projects were chosen so people can make an informed decision if they want to support it at the polls or not.
