Bids or negotiations for everything except the Professional Services for Sampling, Monitoring, and Reporting of Impaired Streams, which is on the agenda for Tuesday as a single proposal from an engineering firm. The agenda sheets are on the LAKE website. We do not yet have the full agenda packet.
This April 28, 2020, Regular Session of the Lowndes County Commission will be held by teleconference. There will be Citizens Wishing to Be Heard, but as usual that will be after the Commissioners vote. This is the only County Commission of the many counties I’ve been to in two states that does not let citizens speak either at the beginning of the session or on each agenda item as it comes up.
Citizens wishing to be heard should email County Clerk, Paige Dukes at email@example.com or call 229-292-6142 during normal business hours to register to speak. Please register prior to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28th. Thank you.
Notice no Work Session is listed on the agenda, and a Commissioner tells me there will be no Work Session, which is marked in the county calendar as Cancelled.
These are the costs of the agenda items, sorted most expensive first:
I’d like to compliment Lowndes County Utilities for pro-actively replacing that Coleman Road Force Main. They already did an emergency repair for about $100,000 in October 2018 after sewage spills in July 2018 and September 2017. Lowndes County has reported no recent spills, not even as recent as Valdosta’s notorious December 2018 record spill.

Investigative reporting costs money, for open records requests, copying, web hosting, gasoline, and cameras, and with sufficient funds we can pay students to do further research. You can donate to LAKE today!
