Eight minutes and a few seconds for the Regular Session of 9 April 2013 of the Lowndes County Commission, with the road closing withdrawn (while it’s still unclear who owns the land next to that road) and the deannexation approved. No special presentation was seen at the scheduled item, but an Earth Day event was announced at the end of the meeting.
Here’s the agenda, with a few notes, and a few links into the video.

- Abandonment of Log Road (CR 8)
County Engineer said applicant had requested to withdraw until a later date for [mumble]. Hm, maybe they’re trying to figure out who actually owns the land next to the road. This is the second recent proposed road closing where ownership of the property adjoining the road wasn’t clear. Maybe the county should do better research before asserting who owns what.
- Deannexation Request, Houser, 2990 Stallings Rd, 148-58A, ~36 acres, R-15 (City)
County Planner Jason Davenport said if the county approved it, the City Council (presumably of Valdosta) would the also consider it, and applicant was in the room. No questions, no discussion, unanimous voice approval.
