Walker County To Vote On TSPLOST Today

Voters in Walker County, who rejected the regional TSPLOST in 2012, will decide on whether to tack on an additional cent to pay for county transportation projects. The tax is estimated to bring in around $3 million over the next 5 years for Walker County and it’s five cities.

The tax is being considered as additional income to help bolster revenue for needed transportation improvements as the county locks legal horns with Erlanger hospital over debt payments.

Polls are open from 7a until 7p today.
