This week the Lowndes County Commission proposes to authorize spending $4.5 million on road projects, plus golf carts for the Quiet Pine Golf Course at Moody AFB that the county now operates.
The biggest project at almost four million dollars is TIA 2023-05 Briggston Road Grading, Drainage, Base, and Paving Bids, leading from Madison Highway to Old Clyattville Road, where you will find Wild Adventures.
|$3,892,229.54||TIA 2023-05 Briggston Road Grading, Drainage, Base, and Paving Bids|
|$240,119.00||Fire Rescue Station 10 Pavement Resurfacing Bids|
|$222,377.49||Grove Point Lift Station Access Road|
|$194,166.66||NC-TIA 2023-01 Rocky Hill Church Road Grading, Drainage, Base, and Paving Bids|
|$85,440.00||Purchase of Wetland Credits for Shiloh Road Bridge Project|
|$50,160.00||Quiet Pines Golf Course Ezgo Golf Cart Lease Agreement|
Perhaps a longer search would find information on the county website about the Purchase of Wetland Credits for Shiloh Road Bridge Project. At least we can say what it is a bridge (or box culvert) over: Big Creek, which runs into Franks Creek, which ends up in the Little River.
However, the Lowndes County Finance Department has a Bids web page that leads to specifics on each bid, including for the Grove Point Lift Station, Briggston Road, Rocky Hill Church Road, and Fire Rescue Station 10 projects. Three of them include a location map and engineering drawings. The exception is for Fire Station 10, but its Bid Documents do reveal the location of that fire station: 2981 US Hwy 84 East, Valdosta, Georgia.
Copies of all these documents and images of their pages are on the LAKE website.
We do not have a copy of the board packet, because I forgot to send the open records request.
Although it is still mysterious why the board packet is not on the county’s webiste where they have an option “packet” that only produces the agenda and an agenda sheet for each item.
Here is the agenda.
