Molly Deese wants to be reappointed to the Valdosta Lowndes County Conference Center and Tourism Authority. Incumbents almost always get reappointed if they say they want to, and the chances of them not reappointing the Vice President and General Manager of Wild Adventures is pretty slim. Ditto Dr. Frances Brown on the Lowndes County Board of Health.

They’re setting the Special Assessment interest rate “for all paving and utilityassessments that are not paid off within the initial 90-day phase. Unpaid assessments revert to installment agreements which are to be paid over a period of up to ten years.” New rate: 6.75% for 2020, down from 7.50% for 2019.

They’re setting qualifying fees to run for office, primary or general election:

County OfficeQualifying Fee
Commission Chairman$600.00
County Commissioner$450.00
Sheriff$2,424.58
Clerk of Court$2,173.02
Coroner$1,946.82
Solicitor$3,674.19
State Court Judge$3,863.70
Chief Magistrate $2,173.02
Probate Judge$2,173.02
Tax Commissioner$2,173.02

LAKE looks forward to the board packet being on the Lowndes County website along with the agenda. Meanwhile, we got the packet 4:26 PM Friday, January 10, 2020, from Lowndes County in response to an open records request, and put it on the LAKE website. The email with the packet also said: “The minutes will be available on Monday.”
