Dr. William R. Grow, District Health Director, presented about the state of the Health Department, and County Manager Joe Pritchard reported revisions to both the county’s Solid Waste Ordinance and the franchise agreement for solid waste were in progress. They ended by going into an executive session to discuss real estate.
For Parks and Rec Board, former Lowndes County Commissioner Richard Raines read a prepared statement, while Scott Willis, hearing specialist with Hearing Care Resources, gave an extemporaneous presentation, including that he was formerly on the VLPRA Advisory Board, and he’s been coaching children and working with the elderly. Commissioners had no questions for either applicant.
Tonight they’ll vote on a list of goals that is in their packet but they haven’t shown you the taxpayers.
Perhaps coincidentally, the county now proposes to widen Old US 41 North two weeks after hearing from opposition to REZ-2015-02 Devine Subdivision (back on the agenda this time) from residents of nearby Stone Creek about safety due to increased traffic. A new map of Devine appeared on screen, but still is not linked into the online agenda; video screen capture is included below in this post.
Also on the agenda for yesterday morning’s Work Session and for voting at this evening’s Regular Session, REZ-2015-01 Gramercy 2 is back in the form of Adopt Resolution accepting infrastructure for its predecessor Gramercy 1, and other items include Community Development Block Grant Requests and a Memorandum of Understanding with the state Department of Transportation about utilities at the Hahira and North Valdosta Road I-75 exits.
