Eight minutes with no questions from Commissioners is all the Lowndes County Commission took to consider the peoples’ business at yesterday morning’s Work Session. Two minutes each for the rezonings for Natco on Val Del Road and Wisenbaker on Great North Road. One minute for Hogan on US 42 N. The Chairman noted there was a request by the applicant to table that one. A commissioner joked a motion to approve. The Chairman said they might take that action the next day. They vote this evening at 5:30 PM.
The biggest news was after adjournment, when the Valdosta Daily Times editor introduced a new reporter.
Below are links to each LAKE video of each agenda item, followed by a LAKE video playlist. See also the agenda and the board packet. Also the LAKE videos of the preceding Planning Commission Regular Session, and the agenda of that GPLC meeting.
- 5a. REZ-2019-13 NATCO, Val Del Rd. R-1 to P-D ~56.1 acres

6. Reports – County Manager – proceedure for accepting roads
Video. Apparently a draft of the propose policy/procedure/guidelines was given to the commissioners. It’s an in-process thing and nothing to be voted on at the regular meeting.
How different the current draft is from the one in the August 26, 2019, board packet, we the taxpayers don’t know.
- 8. Adjournment
New Valdosta Daily Times newspaper reporter (after the meeting)
Video. Maybe his name is Chris Heard; the county had already turned off their sound feed, so it’s hard to tell.
- 1. Call to Order 4. Minutes for Approval
