Mike Allen, former Utilities Director, no longer works for the county as of last Friday, according to County Manager Joe Pritchard. Dr. Amanda Hall proposed an anti-tethering ordinance. Both at yesterday morning’s Work Session of the Lowndes County Commission.
Lowndes County won an award for its budget as “a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device.” All good except: as a communications device? They’d probably have to publish drafts of it before they passed it for that to be true. Unless they mean as in a public telling, not a public hearing. They won last year, too, along with 45 other winners in Georgia, including Valdosta. Award, or passing grade? They’ll present it tonight at the Regular Session.
No rezonings, but surplus computing devices, abandonment of Deloach Road E (CR 95), more on the never-ending juvenile justice Evidence Based Associates topic, Workers Compensation Insurance Renewal, and sewer gasses corrode manhole covers. I wonder how much gases corrode pipelines?
