Vote. Your Voice Matters

Upson County residents have begun weighing in on whether to extend a one percent sales tax projected to generate as much as $28 million for use by the Thomaston-Upson School District.

Early voting opened Monday, Feb. 27 for the education special local option sales tax, reportedly intended to service bond obligation and fund projects for the area school system. However, language in a notice released by the system indicates that the board of education will be empowered to modify use of proceeds.

According to the notice, “…the board of education may choose what capital outlay projects to undertake or not undertake or to delay until additional funding is available to the extent that the proceeds of the [tax] and general obligation debt are insufficient to complete any of the [projects].
