The board is set to appoint seven residents to the 2013 Citizen SPLOST Committee at its regular meeting tonight.
Caucus will be at 4:30 p.m. while the meeting is set to begin at 6 p.m. in the County Administration Building, 12 E. Fourth Ave. Both meetings are open to the public.
At least a dozen applications from people wishing to be on the committee were turned in to the Floyd County Commission by last week.
The County Commission will select six to represent the county plus one to represent the city of Cave Spring.
These representatives, along with four others appointed by the Rome City Commission, will hear proposals and make recommendations on public projects and capital purchases that could be funded through a possible SPLOST.
City and county officials have the final say on the package, which is set to be finalized in September and put to a vote in the Nov. 5 general election. The 2009 SPLOST collection will end June 30.
Also on the agenda for tonight’s meeting is a discussion on the management of the parking lot that serves the Floyd County Courthouse and the Floyd County Courthouse next to The Forum.
Interim Floyd County Manager Gary Burkhalter said the county manages the lot while it has a contract with the Downtown Development Authority to oversee other downtown parking and parking decks the county owns.
The County Commission is set to discuss the possibility of turning the courthouse lot over to the group as well. Burkhalter said he is not sure if any action will be taken on the matter tonight.
