GAINESVILLE - Hall County residents unable to attend public meetings on the county's special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST) proposal, can comment online beginning Wednesday.<br />
County leaders started the public meeting process this week related to the one-cent sales tax they want voters to extend.<br />
The online comment option is on the county's website.<br />
On the in-person front, the second meeting is scheduled next Tuesday at the Clermont Chattahoochee Center. The third meeting is next Thursday at the Gainesville Civic Center. Both sessions begin at 6:00 p.m.
Campaign finance reports filed by state and local officials in Georgia are often riddled with mistakes and discrepancies, with some leaving tens of thousands of dollars in campaign cash apparently unaccounted for, an Atlanta newspaper investigation shows.
