The previous morning they invented a consent agenda, such as Hahira and many others use all the time, but the Lowndes County Commission didn’t call it that. As expected, they appointed Kelley Saxon to DBHDDB. And they adjourned into an executive session.
Below are links to each LAKE video of this Regular Session, with a few notes, followed by a LAKE video playlist. See also the agenda and the LAKE videos of the previous morning’s Work Session.
- 1. Call to Order 2. Invocation 3. Pledge
- Recognition of Leadership Lowndes attendee
- 4. Minutes for Approval
5. Appointment Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities Board
Video. Chris Yarborough resigned from the Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities Board (DBHDD) and Kelley Saxon has applied. The previous morning, she spoke about her qualifications. Tuesday evening they appointed her “by acclamation” even though nobody made a nomination and there was no vote.
- 6 a/b/c/d. Computer Purchase approvals
7. Bid for truck for Utilities Department
Video. The previous morning County Manager Joe Pritchard said they compared the only bid, from Langdale Ford for $85,100 for two trucks, to the state bid price, and this bid was lower. Commissioners unanimously approved the bid.
8. Reports – County Manager (none) and adjourn to executive session
Video. For the purchase of real estate.
