Muscogee Schools: 2009 SPLOST committee to meet August 30

The 2009 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax citizens committee will meet on Monday, August 30 at the Muscogee County Public Education Center.

The citizens committee provides input and advice to the school district on the spending of proceeds from the one-cent sales tax. The tax is expected to generate $223 million to complete a variety of capital projects. The projects include five new schools — a new Carver High, a middle school, two elementary schools and a fine arts academy — additions to Northside High and Richards Middle, and athletics and technology upgrades.

The meeting will be held in conference room 1039 at 5:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
