Big news: One Valdosta-Lowndes has hired an Executive Director, Mary Beth Brownlee, previously with ACCG. See 8. Reports.
Almost three minutes on 5.c. REZ-2023-06 Wild Adventures, 3766 Old Clyattville Road, P-D amendment was the longest at the Lowndes County Commission Work Session yesterday morning. They vote tonight at 5:30 PM.
In her 8. Reports, County Manager Paige Dukes said for the tire amnesty starting that day (yesterday), people could take tires to either the county or city locations. Ordinary vehicle tires, not for tractors or semi-trucks.
She said the tax assessment notices will go out mid-May. There will be some increases, since many things had not been updated for years. She mentioned that Gretchen Quarterman had been on the radio that same morning talking about those notices (in her role as an appointed Lowndes County Tax Assessor). Everyone be aware that notice is not a tax bill. The actual tax amount will also depend on what the County Commission decides for millage.
Below are links to each LAKE video of each agenda item, with a few notes by Gretchen Quarterman, followed by a LAKE video playlist.
