County CEO, Decatur Mayor to Host T-SPLOST Chat Online

Residents will be able to ask the two politicians questions about the upcoming regional transportation referendum on June 13.

DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis will join Decatur Mayor Bill Floyd to field calls from county residents Wednesday, June 13 at 7:30pm as part of a Wireside Chat about the July 31 Regional Transportation Referendum.

The chat is designed to provide a convenient way for thousands of residents to talk to local officials about the upcoming transportation referendum and address questions about the list of projects. On July 31, residents from the 10-county metropolitan Atlanta area will have the opportunity to vote on the referendum which would fund $8.5 billion in transportation improvements through a regional one percent sales tax.

"Mayor Floyd and I look forward to speaking with potentially thousands of our friends and neighbors about the referendum," Ellis said in a statement. "Our goal is to inform DeKalb County residents about the projects that will impact them most."

All questions will be answered live during the call or after in writing. Residents are asked to register for the Wireside Chat online at www.wiresidechats.com or by calling 404-463-3227.

Informational sessions such as these are necessary for more public understanding regarding this regional tax referendum. Besides the informational sites that are available, I am happy to see more opportunities for voters to get their questions answered.
