Lonnie Denton wants to be reappointed to the Lowndes County Division of Family and Children Services Board, and Tonya Davis and Keith Jackson are also interested.

There are two water items, the first of which is not obvious: Annual Contract for Prison Work Details.

The current contract with the Georgia Department of Corrections is due for renewal. The contract provides (3) work details. The contract cost for each detail will be $39,500.

One detail is assigned to the Engineering Department for Storm Water Runoff and the remaining two details are assigned to the Public Works Department for maintaining over 5,000 easements.

The second is really obvious, and a rare case where the county admits to having caused a sinkhole: KOA Lift Station Emergency Repair

The 8″ line between the manhole and lift station wet well has collapsed. This has created a sink hole effect with sand filling the wet well. A new manhole will be set and 40′ of 8″ pipe will be jack and bored to connect the new manhole to the wet well. RPI, Inc. has provided a quote for $49,400.00 to provide the materials and perform the work.

If you went to the June 10th budget presentation, you saw the county’s proposed 2020 budget, or you can go look at the one copy on the third floor, but it’s not on the county’s website, so you won’t get to see it before they vote on it tomorrow.
