The public is invited to a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) open house on Thursday, July 26, 6:30 to 8 p.m., in the Historic DeKalb Courthouse, 101 East Court Square, Decatur.

 Residents will be formally introduced to the SPLOST Oversight Committee and the SPLOST Program Management Team, Moreland Altobelli.

 DeKalb County will receive an estimated $388 million in revenue over the next six years as a result of the SPLOST that was approved by voters in November 2017.

SPLOST funding will be used to improve roads, public safety, parks, libraries, senior centers and health centers and, combined with the Equalized Homestead Option Sales Tax (EHOST), will generate $110 million annually in residential property tax relief for six years.
