Chamber Urges You to Support E-SPLOST

Chamber Urges You to Support E-SPLOST

The Madison County Charter System’s motto is to graduate independent, productive citizens

Twenty-four years ago, Madison County voters passed E-SPLOST 1998. Those independent, productive citizens, and all those independent, productive citizens who voted since then to continue the E-SPLOST, have helped the school system facilitate programming worthy of being the tenth best school system in the state. This means that your school system is the tenth best in the state at graduating independent, productive citizens. Our future independent, productive citizens are counting on you to continue your support. Help us ensure the protection of arguably one of our most valuable assets- our school system. 

The Chamber supports the continuation of the existing E-SPLOST. Please vote YES for the E-SPLOST on your May primary ballot. Here’s why: 

  • This is a continuation of an already-existing E-SPLOST that was put in place in 1998. It is not a new tax. 
  • The sales tax will stay at 8 percent. It will not increase. 
  • This vote YES is the responsible way to pay down the debt on the fantastic school facilities that we have in Madison County, and to support the schools as they graduate, independent, productive citizens.  
  • The Madison County voters of the 1998 E-SPLOST aided our school system in building facilities that are also incredible assets in our community. Madison County High School contributes to our local and regional economy by cultivating a talent pipeline for business and industry. Our school system is a point of community pride. 

If you vote YES, you will be a partner in bringing these projects to fruition:

  • Facility maintenance and upgrades for existing schools
  • New elementary school 
  • Technology advancements
  • Agriculture Center
  • Fine Arts Center
  • Transportation Updates
  • Improve Energy Efficiency
  • Enhance Safety and Security
  • Continue Payments for Addition and Update at Madison County School System. 

We hope that all independent, productive Madison County citizens will consider joining the Chamber of Commerce in supporting the schools with a YES vote to continue the E-SPLOST.
