Henry County is beginning to plan for its next SPLOST referendum. The county has set dates for its SPLOST VI committee to meet. The committee will host seven meetings in early 2024.

The SPLOST committee will make recommendations on which projects Henry County should place in SPLOST VI. This can include a variety of capital projects, such as transportation, parks & recreation or public safety.

SPLOST VI Committee Meetings

The SPLOST VI committee will hold seven meetings. They include one each in the five districts, and two meetings at the county office. Dates and locations include the following:

  • Tuesday, January 9, at 6:30 pm
    Henry County Admin Building, McDonough
  • Tuesday, January 23, at 6:30 pm
    Locust Grove Event Center
  • Tuesday, February 13, at 6:30 pm

    Henry County Admin Building, McDonough

All meetings are open to the public. Residents are encouraged to attend. There, they can provide their feedback about possible projects.

SPLOST Timeline

Following the committee’s work, they will recommend a project list to the Henry County commissioners. Commissioners can adopt the list as is or make changes to it. The BOC must also hold a joint meeting with the city councils next summer. After the joint meeting, the county and each city will adopt project lists. Finally, the voters will consider SPLOST VI on the November 2024 ballot.

If voters approve the referendum, then SPLOST VI would begin tax collections in April 2025. The county’s current program, SPLOST V, is scheduled to end in March 2025.
