Five and a half minutes of the Regular Session fifteen minutes was on the county guaranteeing refinancing Hospital Authority debt, due to County Manager Joe Pritchard reciting what’s in the agreement, and Hospital Authority CEO Bill Forbes speaking, and Chairman Bill Slaughter thanking him. The agreement is in the board packet on the LAKE website from a LAKE open records request.
Second at almost two minutes was 5b. ACCG IRMA Property And Liability Program Renewal, and third was a minute and a half on 5a. FY 2020 Juvenile Justice Incentive Grant, even though there was no discussion on either item. Also cracking a minute, the 5c. Grassy Pond Sewer Connection will be paid for by Moody AFB.
Chairman Bill Slaughter recognized Leadership Lowndes, one person: Joe Dukes, husband of County Clerk Paige Dukes.
