Six minutes and ten seconds yesterday morning to breeze through the agenda for the Work Session; the Lowndes County Commission votes tonight at 5:30 PM. Also, the Chairman announced the Budget Work Session to start at 9AM, which didn’t match the posting about that time put on the county’s website.
Tonight they will very likely reappoint Jeff Sikes to the Airport Authority, increase “convenience fees for online and telephone payments to $2.50 per transaction”, some I-75 exit work, and a swimming pool at Moody Air Force Base. Plus a beer and wine license due to the usual change of ownership, and an HVAC maintenance contract.
- 1. Call to Order 4. Minutes for Approval
5a. Valdosta- Lowndes County Airport Authority Appointment
Video. Jeff Sikes had a letter of endorsement from the Airport Authority, and the county Chairman said a few words for him. If Sikes was present, they didn’t mention it.
Below are links to each LAKE video of yesterday morning’s Work Session plus a very few notes, followed by a LAKE video playlist.
