RHBC Chamber October Lunch & Learn October 24th

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Monday, October 16th, 2017

SPLOST, or Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, is a voter-approved, one-percent sales tax that has been in effect in Bryan County since 1987. For every dollar spent in Bryan County that is subject to sales tax, one penny goes to a fund devoted to certain, identified capital improvement projects.
 
Bryan County’s SPLOST is up for renewal so voters must again go to the polls Nov. 7 (early voting begins Oct. 16) and approve the continuation of SPLOST; which is not a new tax.  To learn more about SPLOST and some of the proposed projects, please attend the RHBC Chamber’s Lunch & Learn on Tuesday, Oct. 24th at 12 noon at Bubba’s Bistro, 2457 US Hwy. 17 in Richmond Hill.
 
SPLOST is expected to generate over $33 million over the next six years and will fund much-needed Bryan County projects such as:

Public Safety Equipment

Roads

Infrastructure

Economic Development

Recreation
 
Cost to attend the Lunch & Learn is $15 and includes a buffet lunch. Seating is limited and RSVP’s are required by Oct. 19 and may be made by calling 912-756-3444 or via e-mail at info@RHBCchamber.org.
