A $41 million mistake in the managment of sales tax dollars threatens to halt construction at local schools, but DeKalb County Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson has proposed that construction at Chamblee Charter High School continue, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
According to the report, the mistake affects 35 building projects. Among those that would stop are renovations to the DeKalb School of the Arts and Redan and Dunwoody high schools. The $69 million construction project at Chamblee, which was funded by mostly bond money, will likely continue.
The AJC reported that the shortfall primarily involves management of the last SPLOST, which was to generate $513 million from 2007 through August.
