Did you know that Sandy Springs will receive $85 million MORE in sales tax revenue over the next 10 years without any tax increase for our residents?
Recently, our elected officials negotiated a deal with Fulton County & 14 other cities that will see Sandy Springs collect a larger portion of the current sales tax revenue. That means more money for police, fire, EMS, emergency management, recreation, community events, sidewalks, road construction, maintenance and other essential services.
Sandy Springs City Council approved the newly negotiated arrangement on November 6. “I’m just glad it’s over. I think we probably negotiated the best deal that we could get,” Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul said.
We appreciate the hard work, diligence and dedication of our city leaders to achieve a result that not only benefits Sandy Springs, but also builds stronger relationships with local leaders in our neighboring cities.
Our city leaders worked hard to achieve this result while building stronger relationships with local leaders outside of Sandy Springs. We appreciate their diligence and dedication. Now, it is up to each and every one of us to communicate with our elected officials to let them know our ideas about how this additional revenue should be spent.
- What are the needs in your neighborhood?
- What sort of investment in public safety would you like to see?
- Where do sidewalks need to be repaired or built?
- Does your neighborhood need a new park?
Plan now to call or write your representatives, or to attend a Sandy Springs City Council meeting and speak in person about your ideas for how our city can best grow and thrive. Sandy Springs is already a great place to live, work and raise a family, but this additional revenue can make our community even better!
