The Fayette Chamber of Commerce was a sponsor for the Untie Atlanta effort to pass the TSPLOST. They supported the 2010 SPLOST. They support bringing mass transit to Fayette. They support low cost housing in Fayette. They support building more retail in Fayette. They support a performing arts center. They support Pinewood Forest. Plus more that is not wanted in Fayette.
The simple reality is they support what benefits them. The citizens of Fayette really don't count.
I oppose the SPLOST. It is, in fact, about a $200 per year tax increase on the average household.
It is double taxation. By that I mean if passed Peachtree City and Fayetteville will be paying toward County Stormwater, which they do not do now, while still paying their own City Stormwater Fee. The cost being about $200 per year for the average household for the SPLOST alone.
Are your elected officials supporting this? I know the ones in Peachtree City are, as is mayoral candidate Eric Imker.
