TSPLOST - Effingham County

Transportation affects everyone in Effingham County, and we have a dire need for a stable funding source for road repairs, improvements and other transportation projects. The Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce has decided to support a county-wide Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, or TSPLOST, and urged the county Board of Commissioners to place the referendum before the voters.  On November 3, 2020, Effingham County residents will be asked to vote for a one-cent sales tax for transportation purposes. The money will be used solely for transportation projects within Effingham County. Click here to download the referendum
