In an effort to show Barrow County citizens how their tax dollars are being spent, approximately 30 SPLOST signs are being erected throughout the county.
The signs, which had been in storage, have been placed at both the old and new courthouses. According to Barrow County accountant Beverly Dunbar, the county currently has a list of approximately 40 places where they intend to install the recycled signs.
The signs, which read “Barrow County Growing Strong — Here Are Your SPLOST Dollars in Action,” were a topic of conversation at a Sept. 8 meeting between county and city officials in which the proposed SPLOST referendum slated for Spring of 2011 was discussed.
