One month ago, the entire Lowndes County Commission
Regular Work Session took eight and a half minutes.
Executive Session for Real Estate.
1. Call to Order 4. Minutes for Approval
5a. Appointment – Valdosta Lowndes Development Authority
Video. Chairman Bill Slaughter mentioned that Teri Lupo does want to be reappointed, and she is currently the Chair of VLDA.
6a. 2020 Statewide Mutual Aid Agreement
Video. EMA Director Ashley Tye said that this agreement had been in effect for at least twenty years, last re-approved 2016. He explained it’s neighbor helping neighbor, with no reimbursement either way, usually. But if there is a presidentially-approved disaster, to be eligible for funds from that, this agreement is required. Commissioners had no questions. This was the longest item at a minute and a half.
6 b. Quit Claim Deed for White Water Road Right of Way
Video. County Engineer Mike Fletcher said back in the mid-80s the county tried to obain some right of way. Recently a problem with a signature from back then was discovered, and this item would clear that up.
