Videos: GEFA, road abandonment, bids, and water @ LCC 2015-05-26

The County Manager said it’s “in the hands of the clerk, if you’d like to look at it” for at least two documents, so not only did the agenda on the web lack even the one-sheet agenda item writeups, Commissioners weren’t provided copies of contracts they were being asked to approve. They vote this same evening, and the Planning Commission also meets 5:30 PM Tuesday.

The GEFA Loan Modification turns out to be about the Alapaha Water Treatment Plant loan approved 28 October 2014 for which “an addendum was requested” in April that doesn’t change the total, only the allocation of the funds due to additional engineering services. Both sides of Buck Cato Road (CR 880) are owned by Acree Investments and Chancy, who want it abandoned. The vehicles they want to surplus and sell seem to be mostly ones that were towed, plus County Manager Joe Pritchard wanted to add some solid waste disposal items. They didn’t say who the other two bids were for the 3/4 Ton Truck for the Extension Service, nor who else bid for the Tables and Chairs for the Emergency Operations Center. “Staff has requested” the interconnection of the North Lowndes and Kinderlou Water Systems. They adjourned the Work Session after ten minutes, and they’ll vote tonight at 5:30 PM.

Here’s a video playlist:
