Videos: 9 consideration, 6 tax lighting, 4 appointments, 2 rezonings, 1 proclamation @ LCC 2014-10-27 LCC 2014-11-10

REZ-2014-17 Grand Bay Estates, in Lowndes County Commission Work Session, by John S. Quarterman, 10 November 2014 They vote tonight on what they discussed yesterday morning in these videos. A subdivision rezoning gets no objections while a rezoning for agricultural use gets massive objections. Also few if any of those objectors have said anything about the Sabal Trail pipeline. Do priorities around here seem odd?

The emergency security monitor replacement is, you guessed it, a no-bid contract with the same company that originally installed them. Which fits with the no-bid Alapaha Water Plant Expansion, back this time for property acquisition after twice failing to get a setback variance at ZBOA.

The state changed the qualifications for the South Georgia Community Service Board, so they have to appoint somebody new (Commissioner Marshall “volunteered”), and three seats are expiring or vacant on the Development Authority, so they are appointing three replacements. No not that other Development Authority formerly known as the Industrial Authority; quite a bit of discussion about the difference. The numerous special tax lighting districts are all different, ranging from no-brainers to table it. And there’s a deadline of November 16th, so they need to vote on them today if they’re going to take effect this year.

All that and health premiums, an upgrade to the jail overseer, several state-mandated plans, and some replacements of the MIDS bus system fleet.

Here’s the agenda, and below are the videos of events as they transpired, followed by a video playlist.
