*Plans for a Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST) referendum in Hall County this year were scrapped by the Hall County Commission Thursday night. The reason: a months-long disagreement between the county and Rest Haven and Buford over divvying up proceeds the tax, if approved by voters, would have generated.
*Though detailed information was not immediately provided, Hall County sheriff’s deputies were busy with two accidents late Thursday afternoon two major roads. One occurred on I-985 near Friendship Road and closed both northbound lanes for a time. The second happened on Candler Road between Bolman Road and Baker Road and halted all traffic in both directions.
