The City of Savannah launched a new website that allows residents to find out "how their pennies have been put to work," says a City spokesman.
The new site at www.savannahga.gov/splost offers a tour of many of the City projects made possible through the 1% Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, known as SPLOST.
"Within the SPLOST site, citizens can view photos, watch videos and review supporting documents to learn more about how the City of Savannah has managed its share of SPLOST through the years," the City says.
SPLOST has funded more than $1 billion worth of projects in Chatham County since voters approved the first referendum in 1985. The City of Savannah’s share has totaled $342 million, almost half of which has been spent on drainage.
