Peach County voters gave their stamp of approval to the county's SPLOST Tuesday night. It passed 1889 votes to 889 votes.

County Commissioners estimate that the SPLOST could bring in $21.7 million dollars over 6 years to the county for special projects.

Some of the big projects include road projects, a sewer system for Southwest Peach County, and a workforce development center that would be run by Middle Georgia Technical College.

Commission Chairman Melvin Walker said he is happy about the results.

"The public we gave them a plan on how we want to manage the county through 2021 and they're saying go ahead, we want to give you that opportunity," said Walker. "So I hope we are going to live up to our obligation. "

The SPLOST will take effect in 2015.
