School board sets date for SPLOST


Murray County voters will be asked to decide the fate of a new 1 percent, five-year Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) for education on March 16, 2021.

Murray school board members voted unanimously to call for a special election, which Superintendent Steve Loughridge said will cost the school system about $10,000. Since it is a special election, the school system is required to pay election costs.

A vote on March 16 will come almost a year and a half before the current five-year SPLOST expires in 2022.
