Athens voters approved SPLOST on Nov. 5 (Photo/Kate Skeean)

Athens voters approved the SPLOST 2020 referendum Nov. 5. The SPLOST tax, which will remain at 8%, will help fund 37 new projects in and around the Athens community. 

Voters approved the list as a whole, but 37 projects is a lot to keep up with.

We broke down the SPLOST projects by category — infrastructure, housing, recreation, environment and public health and safety — so you could see where the funding will go.
