Packet: Surprise Bonds, Val Del Road rezoning, GLPC appointments, 1/2 million to Motorola @ LCC 2019-09-10

After four days, but before the Commission votes at 5:30 PM in its Regular Session this evening, the county sent the packet, at 10:50 AM this morning. Three is more than the statutory 3 days in the Georgia Open Records Act (GORA). The packet is on the LAKE website.

Now we can see who are the applicants to the Planning Commission.

There’s a great deal of paperwork for the Motorola System Upgrade Agreement, but I don’t see any one page summary of what half a million a year is paying for, nor why Lowndes County is paying ten times as much as Glynn County. However, despite the table of annual payments going out a decade, “At the anniversary date… Motrola may adjust the price of the Services to reflect its current rates.”

Added to the agenda since yesterday morning’s Work Session, the South Georgia Regional Development Authority wants the county to guarantee $65 million in bonds for VSU’s Hopper Hall, Read Hall, and Georgia Hall. We only know the amount and for what because we got the board packet. There’s nothing about either in the agenda sheet, other than a cryptic reference to “VSU ASRE”.
