Two weeks ago, the six-minute Reports took almost as long as the entire rest of the Regular Session of the Lowndes County Commission.
Clay Griner did show up to vote on an item in his district, but Scottie Orenstein did not: 6.b. Adopt Resolution Accepting Infrastructure for Grove Pointe Phase V Sect 2. Commissioner Demarcus Marshall was also absent. Commissioners Joyce Evans and Mark Wisenbaker were present both at the Work Session and this Regular Session. Chairman Bill Slaughter was present.
County Manager Paige Dukes was also present, giving many Reports, assisted in a video about Griner Park at Webster and Ashley Street.
Commissioner Joyce Evans provided some amusment, when she nominated Mark Wisenbaker for the 5.c. Southern Georgia Area Agency on Aging. The other Commissioners nominated her and re-appointed her.
Everything else was approved unanimously, including the other two Authorities got re-appointments.
Pam Hubbard wanted to speak in Citizens Wishing to Be Heard, but she did not turn in her form before the meeting. The Chairman offered to speak to her after the meeting. Then he asked for and got a vote to go into an Executive Session to discuss potential litigation.
