Cascade Hosts Transportation Sales Tax Session

The city of Atlanta is hosting a series of information sessions on the regional transportation referendum this week, and tonight's event for southwest Atlanta begins at 6 pm at Cascade United Methodist Church.
On July 31, 2012, voters within the 10-county Atlanta metropolitan area will decide whether to fund local and regional transportation projects through a regional transportation referendum, known as T-SPLOST.
The Georgia state economist has estimated total revenues from the referendum to be $7.2 billion over a 10-year period. The city is expected to receive a little over $9.0 million per year for 10 years, or about $94.0 million total, to spend on local projects.
Besides the public having a chance to comment on the referendum to city officials, Patch invites you to share your thoughts on the proposed transportation sales tax on our special Facebook page devoted exclusively to the issue.
