North Georgia voters consider tax measures for infrastructure projects

In addition to the City Schools of Decatur bond referendum on Nov. 3, 2015, several other North Georgia jurisdictions are considering infrastructure projects that could affect property taxes or sales taxes.

Like Decatur, Pike County will have a school bond referendum.

Hall County and Baldwin County school boards are proposing special purpose local option sales taxes for education. Augusta is considering a seventh renewal of its special purpose local option sales tax. If the SPLOST is renewed, Augusta's sales tax will stay at 8 percent rather than falling to 7 percent.  Putnam County is also considering a SPLOST.
