For unknown reasons, the Lowndes County Commission votes tonight at 5:30 PM.
By far the longest at this morning’s Work Session was 5.d. Lake Park Annexation and Rezoning of Register Property, running 14 and a half minutes.
Second at almost three minutes was the $99,700 jail software change order.
The 2020 Public Defender Contracts got a minute and a half, even though they are unchanged from last year.
The $789,567.21 Arglass Road Paving item didn’t even get a minute.
County Chairman Bill Slaughter took about a minute thanking the Commissioners for the recent Retreat; LAKE video to come of that.
