Splost 5 has $1.8 M shortfall

Dougherty County Finance Committee

Dougherty County Administrator Richard Crowdis notified the Dougherty County Finance Committee they have to cut back on spending.

The Special Project Local Optional Sales Tax or "SPLOST" 5 budget is projected to have a $1.8 million dollar shortfall.

County officials say the main reason for the financial shortcoming because the sales tax collection estimate is significantly less than originally planned.
