Your Pennies at Work
Every four years citizens are asked to consider continuing the one cent sales tax known as the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST). It is up to the County Commissioners to call a referendum that would take place in November of this year for the purpose of continuing the sales tax. The SPLOST is Duluth’s primary source of funds for capital improvements such as road resurfacing, sidewalks, parks and public safety equipment to name a few.

Duluth’s Gateway Public Art Project Generously Funded by AGCO
The City of Duluth, Georgia, led by the Gateway Art Project Committee (GAPC) and Mayor Nancy Harris, are very pleased to announce that out of 85 letters of intent from artists all over the country for this very exciting public art project, the committee has selected local artist, Michael Dillon, from Milton, Georgia to design Duluth’s first piece of public art. The chosen design will be a permanent piece of original art to be installed in the center of the newly constructed roundabout located at the intersections of West Lawrenceville Street, McClure Bridge Road and Irvindale Road. This historic residential setting is considered a “gateway” into downtown Duluth, and this piece of art is expected to become a significant icon in our City and an important symbol to welcome citizens and visitors alike into the heart of Duluth.
