Commissioners had trouble figuring out which road the County Engineer wanted to rename, and which roads had already been closed, at this morning’s Lowndes County Commission Regular Session.

6.a. Renaming George Road (CR #105)
There are two George Roads in the county and residents want to change the name of this one to Caney(?) Branch Road. There were some questions from Commissioners, mostly about where that road is. Commissioner Crawford Powell kept asking if it was a continuation of Corbett Road. County Engineer Mike Fletcher said no, and the part of Corbett Road Powell was thinking of was closed. Apparently the Commission has closed so many roads even the Commissioners can’t keep track of which they are.
If the Commissioners, with their packets in front of them, were confused, so much more so probably are you, dear readers, who don’t have those packets. CR 105, aka George Road East, runs between Hickory Grove Road and Statenville Road (GA 376) east of Lake Park.
I know this because I have a copy of the Lowndes County Thoroughfare Plan. That Plan no longer seems to be on the county’s website. And only a few weeks ago one Commissioner was unaware it even existed. Ah, transparency in Lowndes County!
