Yesterday morning’s County Commission Work Session started on time! In addition to the open records and open meetings items, it included a report from KLVB, two rezonings, typo fixes and date changes in the ULDC, a vanity road name change, an alcohol license and an alcohol ordinance change, a USGS river gauge, surplus vehicles, purchase of a new fire truck, and more! They vote on all this tonight at their Regular Session, 5:30 PM. Here’s the agenda.

5.a. Unsurprisingly, the County Manager suggested the County Clerk be appointed the Open Records Officer now required by state law. 5.b. They also have a resolution before them about review and approval of minutes of executive sessions, but of course they don’t allow we the taxpayers to see that before they vote on it.

They considered adopting subdivision infrastructure for 5.c. Glen Laurel and 5.d. Crestwood.

6. Videos of the KLVB report and of applicant Emily Macheski-Preston are in a separate blog post.

7. Public Hearings:

8. For Consideration

9. Bid – Rescue Pumper for Lowndes County Fire Rescue
Lisa Burton said low bid was $302,587 with 30-45 day delivery time. Fire Chief Guyton said all the various pumpers met specifications. Commissioners had a few questions about condition and such.

10. Reports-County Manager
County Manager Joe Pritchard asked County Clerk Paige Dukes to talk about the very brief ceremony 11AM Tuesday morning at the old courthouse square for 9/11 victims.
County Manager also asked for an executive session, which Commissioners then convened.

11. Citizens Wishing to be Heard Please State Name And Address
They don’t do that in the Work Session. If you want to speak, show up tonight at the Regular Session.
