TALLAHASSEE, Fla.

What's the best use for your tax dollars?

The Leon County Sales Tax Committee still hasn't made a decision quite yet.

"It's going to effect the health and vitality of this entire community," said committee chair Steve Evans about the impact these decisions will have.

Evans and the committee took questions and comments from residents about possible projects including a proposed hotel/convention center connecting FSU and Tallahassee.

Evans says the feedback over the past two years has been incredibly helpful.

"It's been very engaging from day one. As you might know, the sales tax committee has been meeting now for two years. We've had hundreds of groups and citizens here before us."

Several projects, including help for small businesses are hoping to connect different areas of the county to make sure certain places aren't left out.

"We don't want to create silos in the community. We want to make sure that it's all connected."
