Applying this morning for Board of Tax Assessors are Mr. Gene Felts and Mrs. Gretchen Quarterman. The Lowndes County Commission will vote tomorrow (Tuesday) at 5:30 PM. That and almost $4 million in water, road, software, and fire items.
|$1,681,770.84||Grading, Drainage, Base, and Paving of Clyattstone Road and Simpson Lane.|
|$1,417,333.98||Clyattstone Water Main Extension|
|$489,310.00||Motorola SUAII (Evergreen)|
|$128,075.58||Firefighter Personnel Request|
|$41,217.6.00||Foxborough Lift Station Pump|
|$34,169.28||Drainage Improvements to Brinson Lane and Oak Hill Drive|
|$22,500.00||FY2021 Joint Funding Agreement with USGS|
|$19,800.00||Land Application System (LAS) Expansion Agreement|
Apparently paving does not solve all problems, because one of the four water items is Drainage Improvements to Brinson Lane and Oak Hill Drive to “eliminate flooding issues as a result of the paving of Oak Hill Drive.”. The other three water items are FY2021 Joint Funding Agreement with USGS for the Folsom Bridge (GA 122 Little River & Skipper Bridge (Withlacoochee River) USGS gauges, Foxborough Lift Station Pump, and Land Application System (LAS) Expansion Agreement.
In addition to Brinson Lane, there are two more road items: Grading, Drainage, Base, and Paving of Clyattstone Road and Simpson Lane (how much have they spent on that project combined so far?) and Acceptance of Infrastructure for Val Del Villas. The latter is listed as no cost, despite the Brinson Lane episode.
Also on the agenda: Grant Submission Request – COVID-19 Response Grant Application, partly to “Recruit and hire a sufficient number of poll workers and inspectors to ensure polling places are properly staffed,” , a Firefighter Personnel Request, and Motorola SUAll (Evergreen) software.
