The city of North Augusta will receive its first payment from sales tax III in July but it will likely be 2014 before residents will see any work on the capital projects.
“There has to be a lot of planning,” City Administrator Todd Glover said earlier this month.
The city will receive a little more than $23 million over the next seven years, split into quarterly payments.
City council members prioritized the 10 capital projects to be funded by the sales tax. The completion of fire station 3 and a new fire truck for North Augusta Public Safety was the priority project, followed by the Martintown Road and Knobcone Avenue intersection widening and signal addition.
All of the projects will be completed according to the order in which they are ranked, if everything stays the same, said Glover.
