Oconee County Expecting $55 Million in 2015 SPLOST Revenues, Commission Chairman Told Farmland Gathering

Allows For New Projects

Oconee County is projecting that it will receive $55 million from the proposed Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax to be on the ballot on May 20, up from the $40 million projected from the current SPLOST.

Revenue from the current 1 percent optional sales tax is running behind projections, however, and county officials now are expecting it will generate only about $35 million by the time it expires at the end of next year.
