Videos: Pipeline, agriculture, lighting, appointments, and parks @ LCC 2014-11-11

300x111 Full house, in Lowndes County Commission Regular Session, by Gretchen Quarterman, 11 November 2014 Update 2014-11-17: board packet.

Three citizens spoke against the unnecessary and hazardous Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline. Several Commissioners even spoke up in Other Business, turning it into de facto Commisioner Comments. But none of them called for a resolution or ordinance against the pipeline.

The subdivision rezoning still got no objections, while the rezoning for agricultural use got massive objections and a compromise solution.

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 appointed three replacements. No not that other Development Authority formerly known as the Industrial Authority. The numerous special tax lighting districts are all different, ranging from no-brainers to table it. And there was a deadline of November 16th for them to take effect this year.

All that and a Parks and Rec proclamation, 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. See also the LAKE videos of the previous morning’s Work Session and the LAKE videos of the 27 October 2014 Planning Commission meeting.
