City Manager Marcia Hampton explained, “Our plan for all of the projects moving forward is to utilize the SPLOST funds for the capital projects and allocate general fund dollars for on-going operations." The total proposed budget of $30.7 million represents an overall increase of 9% over the previous fiscal year. “The mayor and council felt that this increase was not only warranted but necessary to ensure the continued delivery of quality city services and public safety programs, to promote quality future development, and to make the most efficient use of incoming SPLOST funds and tax dollars" Hampton stated .
