Toccoa Commission Meeting Today

Toccoa City Commissioners will gather later today for a regularly scheduled meeting.

City commissioners are scheduled to meet at 5 p.m. today at ToccoaCity Hall.

This is the second regularly scheduled meeting for the month of July.

It was pushed back a week from its normal date due to schedule conflicts.

During today’s meeting, city commissioners are scheduled to consider approving the SPLOST VI resolution and intergovernmental agreement.

County commissioners approved the same document last week.

The agreement lays out the terms for dividing revenues from SPLOST VI if voters approve it in November.

Under the agreement, StephensCounty and the city of Toccoa would divide the SPLOST VI revenues 70/30 after first providing Martin and Avalon their total shares at the outset of SPLOST VI collections next July, if the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax is approved by voters.

The county would receive 70 percent of collections, while the city would receive 30 percent.

Toccoa has proposed using its SPLOST VI proceeds on items including water and sewer projects, road re-surfacing, the city pool, vehicle replacements, and renovations to the SchaeferCenter.

Other items on the agenda for today’s meeting include a bid award for fire department renovations that was tabled previously and the monthly financial report.

Meanwhile, city commissioners will meet prior to the 5 p.m. meeting for a work session.

That work session starts at 4 p.m. and is also at ToccoaCity Hall.
