2023 SPLOST Information

SPLOST is a county-wide one-cent, voter-approved, “Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax” for a designated time period that local governments can use to fund capital projects. Back in March of 2017, Fayette County voters approved a six-year SPLOST, which comes to an end in 2023.

 A new referendum will be placed on the ballots on March 21, 2023, to replace the 2017 SPLOST.  More information pertaining to the 2017 SPLOST can be found by visiting; https://peachtree-city.org/1355/2017-SPLOST-Information

On September 15, 2022, the Mayor and Council voted on the final project list for the March referendum. A copy of the project manual is below;

Public Safety- Fire Projects Overview

Benefits

  • Recruiting and retaining the highest quality employees
  • Providing exceptional training

Needs Assessment

The Peachtree City Fire Department is in need of improvements to its inventory of apparatus, communications, and personal protective equipment. The Fire Department is also in need of a new fire station, on the southside of Peachtree City, for better coverage of that area. The previous SPLOST was utilized to replace apparatus and keep our fleet at top operating capacity. These proposed replacement projects maintain the current replacement schedule for fire apparatus. The City is also proposing new equipment to better protect our employees and citizens such as turnout gear washers and dryers for each station and an extraction ram for each fire engine.
