Since the Voters of Peach County’s approval of the T-SPLOST and the Bond Issue November 2, 2022, the Peach County Board of Commissioners has been working with the Bond Counsel to complete a Bond Issue.  The estimated completion date is March 30, 2022.  At the same time, the Board has been working with two engineering groups to engineer the resurfacing of the majority of the roads listed as primary.   The Engineering group has completed their work, and we are going out for a bid on March 23, 2022.  The listing of the bids will be in the local organ (The Leader Tribune) and on our website.  We have to run those ads for 30 days.  

We will update further as we progress. Thank you!


The transportation system throughout Peach County is the single most important and expensive infrastructure system to build and maintain. Our county roads and city streets are used daily by the traveling public. The construction and maintenance of this transportation system is vitally important to the quality of life of the residents of our community, and its attractiveness to industry and commerce.

The residents of Peach County, including those who live in the City of Byron and City of Fort Valley, could take advantage of the Single-County Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST) for addressing multiple transportation concerns. From paving and resurfacing numerous streets in the City of Byron, City of Fort Valley, and the unincorporated area of Peach County. One hundred percent of the funds collected by this initiative will be spent on transportation projects in this community.

Peach County Chairman Martin Moseley, Mayor Michael Chidester, and Mayor Barbara Williams have signed an Intergovernmental Agreement that clears a hurdle for a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax for Transportation purposes to go before voters. On June 8, the Peach County Board of Commissioners met formally to call for the item to be placed on the November 2, 2021, ballot.

All Peach voters will consider a 1 cent sales tax that would authorize transportation projects like streets and roads, overpasses, traffic control improvements, and more. The proceeds from this 5-year T-SPLOST is projected at a maximum $27 million. Peach County, the City of Byron, and Fort Valley have agreed to share the funds with a 62.93% (Peach County) 16.76% (City of Byron), 17.23% (City of Fort Valley) 1.89% (City of Warner Robins), 1.19% (City of Perry) split and selected projects that are important to each jurisdiction.

This website provides information about the T-SPLOST initiative, including an overview of the legislation that made this initiative possible, a list of potential projects to be funded by this initiative and more.

TRANSPORTATION SPECIAL PURPOSE SALES TAX

The  Transportation Investment Act (TIA) passed by the legislature in 2010 provided an opportunity for regions throughout Georgia to impose a 1 percent Regional Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (TSPLOST) to fund transportation improvements within their region.

To provide another transportation funding option, the Georgia General Assembly passed a Single County TSPLOST in 2015. The Single County TSPLOST allows individual counties that are not part of a regional effort to levy a sales tax solely dedicated for transportation purposes.

To qualify for a Single County TSPLOST, the county must already impose a regular SPLOST. TSPLOST is meant to meet a transportation need above and beyond regular SPLOST or to free up regular SPLOST for non-transportation related capital projects. Single County TSPLOST can be levied up to five years at a fractional rate up to 1 percent in .05 percent increments if there is an intergovernmental agreement with the qualified cities within the county.

If there is no intergovernmental agreement in place, the tax can only be levied up to .75 percent. With no intergovernmental agreement in place, the default distribution formula between the county and its cities is a formula based on the amount of expenditures made for transportation in the most recent three fiscal years.

A Regional TSPLOST allows for the tax to be levied up to 10 years and 25 percent of the funds are discretionary money that goes back to each individual local government. An incentive to pass a Regional TSPLOST is that the Local Maintenance & Improvement Grant (LMIG) match is 10 percent in contrast to the 30 percent required for non-regional TSPLOST local government.
