The biggest item on this week’s Lowndes County Commission agenda, for voting this eventing, is Grounds Maintenance. Planting some native shrubbery, flowers, and trees instead of all that lawn would reduce that cost.
Three sewage system items add up, for Whitewater Lift Station Control Panel Emergency Repair, Bemiss Low Pressure Sewer Main Replacement Change Order, and the $2,500,000.00 GEFA Loan for the Sewer System Rehabilitation Project. That last does not show up in the agenda sheet as BUDGET IMPACT, but county taxpayers will pay for it over time. However, proactive sewer system fixes are lot better than reactive sewage spill repairs.
Four courts in three agenda items require cash match. Plus a road work truck and pest control round out the dollar figures.
There’s a reappointment to Children’s Services and a new appointment to the Library Board.
And there’s a beer license, which brings in fees of $250 Off Premises + $150 Administration = $400.
The board packet is on the LAKE website, received in response to a LAKE open records request.
