Update 2022-10-24: Videos: LAS, TIA, Facilties, Emergency @ LCC 2022-09-27.
A report on Hurricane Ian by EMA Director Ashley Tye (could be here by Wednesday) took eight minutes of the eighteen minutes of yesterday morning’s Lowndes County Commission Work Session.
Nonetheless, there was a surprising amount of discussion of other items, especially on 5.c. Transportation Investment Act (TIA) Old Clyattville Road Widening and on the $1,364,736.00 5.d. Comprehensive Facilities Energy Savings Project Amendment, which everybody agreed should not have needed so much fixing so soon.
Below are links to each LAKE video of each agenda item, with a few notes, followed by a LAKE video playlist. See also agenda and board packet.
1. Call to Order 4. Minutes for Approval
5.a. Beer and Wine License – Kraftland – 4592 North Valdosta Rd, St B
5.b. South Lowndes LAS Expansion Assessment and Testing
Commissioner Demarcus Marshall: Only proposal?
A: Is the same company that designed the LAS.
5.c. Transportation Investment Act (TIA) Old Clyattville Road Widening
Commissioner Mark Wisenbaker: Then right of way work?
A: Bid date of March of 2024.
Commissioner Demarcus Marshall: Could we have a picture of the RoW?
5.d. Comprehensive Facilities Energy Savings Project Amendment
Chillers in Judicial and Administrative complex are 13 years old and do not work correctly. They should last 20-30 year. This is a problem. The models installed are no longer made and parts can’t be gotten easily. Is this the result of selecting a “low bid”?
6. Reports – Report on Hurricane Ian
Basically be ready by Wednesday evening. Could arrive anytime after that. Exact track still unknown.
6. Reports – County Manager
More on Ian tomorrow evening (5:30 PM Tuesday, September 27, 2022).
