Norcross designates how SPLOST funds to be spent

The Norcross City Council voted recently to approve allocations for the proposed 2017 SPLOST fund. The unanimous vote will allocate 55 percent of any funding received for parks and recreation. Transportation will receive 35 percent and parking the remaining 10 percent.

Gwinnett’s one percent Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax program has paid for county and city facilities, acres of greenspace, parks and recreation facilities, new roads and improvements, police and fire stations, and libraries around the county.

Gwinnett cities receive a portion of the funding based on their size. Working within guidelines for how the money can be spent, cities then determine the percentage of funds they will spend.
