Voters keep the penny rolling

The special purpose local option sales tax will continue for another six years in Bryan County.
According to unofficial results from the Bryan County Voter Registration Office, voter overwhelming approved the SPLOST referendum 1,619 to 516.
“I think it’s a big win for everybody in Bryan County because the projects that are planned to be taken care of in the next six years,” Bryan County Commission Chairman Jimmy Burnsed said Tuesday night.
He also said he was “tickled to death” with the SPLOST Advisory Committee, a group of local civic and business leaders and government officials who advocated and campaigned for the fund, noting the difficulty in getting voters to the polls for just one item.
“I couldn’t be more pleased with the committee and that the citizens heard, listened and responded – responded in a resoundingly positive manor.”
