DeKalb County will host three Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) open houses in April to give citizens an opportunity to review work completed, find out what is in progress and ask questions.

Open house dates and locations are as follows:

  • Tuesday, April 9, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Maloof Auditorium, 1300 Commerce Drive, Decatur, GA 30030
  • Wednesday, April 10, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Central DeKalb Senior Center, 1346 McConnell Drive, Decatur, GA 30033
  • Thursday, April 11, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Lou Walker Senior Center, 2538 Panola Road, Lithonia, GA 30058

County officials will be on hand to discuss projects such as road resurfacing, public safety enhancements and parks and recreation facility upgrades. Two SPLOST-funded vehicles will be on display: the rapid response fire rescue vehicle and new top-of-the-line police vehicle. Residents will also be able to interact with members of the SPLOST Citizen Oversight Group, which reviews project spending to enhance transparency and accountability.

DeKalb County will receive an estimated $388 million in SPLOST revenue over six years to improve county roads, infrastructure, libraries, parks and public safety.
