Road Maintenance and Improvement Tax Information

A Road Maintenance and Improvement Tax, or Transportation SPLOST, is a way to fund road maintenance and improvement projects without raising property taxes.  On March 19, 2019 Lumpkin County voters will consider a Road Maintenance and Improvement Tax referendum.  Proposed projects are:  a joint project with the City of Dahlonega to improve the safety of the Oak Grove Road and Hwy 19 Business intersection; Lumpkin County projects: road resurfacing, road safety improvements, road maintenance equipment and vehicles; City of Dahlonega projects: road maintenance, bicycle paths, sidewalks and bridge projects.  It is estimated that the Road Maintenance and Improvement Tax will generate $15,000,000 towards these projects.
