If approved by voters, this measure would give Elbert County Treasurer Rick Pettitt the option to seek a third consecutive term, instead of being limited to two, four-year terms.

Ballot Issue 5A


The Elizabeth Park and Recreation District is seeking voter approval to continue a mill levy assessment that would pay for district improvements.

If approved, this measure would extend the tax, levied at the rate of 1.676 mills, that was first approved in 2000 and is scheduled to sunset in December 2018. Planned improvements include, among other things, the installation of a splash pad, increased out-of-school programming for youths, increased arts programming, additional special events, sidewalk repairs at Evans Park and roadway improvements at Casey Jones Park.
