Elected officials in each of the 10 Atlanta-area counties will be holding June "wireside chats" to answer citizens' questions on the upcoming TSPLOST vote.
DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis and Decatur Mayor Floyd will hold a session on June 13 at 7:30 p.m.
Charlotte Nash, chairwoman for the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners, and Norcross Mayor Bucky Johnson will hold a session on June 7 at 6:15 p.m.
Citizens can access the session by calling 404.463.3227 or by visiting the website.
Each chat will last for one hour and will focus on projects in the local officials' areas. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions directly of their local officials. If a question is not answered during the call, the caller will receive a response via email.
On July 31, residents across the 10-county Atlanta region including Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties, as well as the City of Atlanta, can vote on a referendum to fund $8.5 billion in transportation improvements across metro Atlanta through a regional 1 percent sales tax.
The list of projects to be built with the revenue was created in 2011 with input from more than 200,000 regional residents. The list is available at here.
