Clayton approves $12 million in SPLOST spending

Residents in North Clayton County will be the biggest beneficiaries of county leaders’ recent decision to spend more than $12 million on several tax-financed projects.

Clayton Commissioners this week unanimously approved using Special Local Option Sales Tax money to build the Northwest Clayton branch library and a senior center in the northeast end of the county as well as renovating to the county prison. The money comes from the 2009 SPLOST funds. The library will cost $6 million. The senior center will cost $6.5 million and the prison renovation will cost about $1.5 million.
