The question has been raised regarding the City of Jackson Veteran’s Park Project and whether property tax dollars would be spent on this. The answer is no. For clarification, the Veteran’s Park Project is a project being 100% fully funded and supported by the City of Jackson. The land for the project was donated by a local family to the City for this purpose and the City is funding this as a public project.

The Butts County Government is not involved with this project and has not solicited any funding for this project from members of the public and to our knowledge, we are not aware of any being solicited by the City.

Butts County is very supportive of this project as a way to honor our Veterans and commends the City of Jackson for taking on and managing this worthwhile endeavor. We have no doubt that it will honor our veterans as befits their sacrifice.
