They vote this evening on what you can see they discussed yesterday morning, in these LAKE videos of the Lowndes County Commission Work Session. They barely had a quorum. Commissioner Demarcus Marshall is never at Work Sessions because he’s at work, and Commissioner Scottie Orenstein was on some beach.
Tracy Chapman asked for her name to be withdrawn from the KLVB appointment. Regina Kimbrough spoke. See previous post for more about the applicants.
Longest at more than 3 minutes was 6.b. REZ-2018-14 Coventry Villas, Mulligan Rd, a rezoning for a planned development, in which Commissioner Clay Griner actually asked a question.
Third longest (after the KLVB item) was the 7.d. Ordinance Adopting Current Board of Health Rules, because of the explanation of the state requires various health rules, and because even the Commissioners did not have the complete list of rules the ordinance refers to; only the county attorney had that. Who even knew the county had an ordinance on Board of Health Rules?
- 1. Call to Order 4. Minutes for Approval
- 5a. Keep Lowndes/Valdosta Beautiful Appointment
- 6.a. REZ-2018-13 Sims, 4893 Phillips Rd. & 4877 Beaver Ln., E-A to R-1 …
6.b. REZ-2018-14 Coventry Villas, Mulligan Rd, R-A, R-1 to P-D … ~8.57 acres
Video. Commissioner Clay Griner wanted to know about nearby subdivisions and whether there was anything like this one in the county now. Commissioner Mark Wisenbaker asked even more specifically about lot size for nearby Glen Laurel subdivision lot sizes.
- 7.a. ACCG-IRMA Property and Liability Renewal Approval of renewal
- 7.b. Evidence Based Associates Service Agreement
- 7.c. Pine Grove Lift Station Pump
- 7.d. Ordinance Adopting Current Board of Health Rules
- 8. Reports: none – County Manager
- 9. CWTBH: None, so they adjourned
