3.5 minutes of actual meeting after a minute of invocation and pledge and a minute of welcomes.
welcomed Cub Scout Pack 400 and Troup 410,
a member of the Lowndes County Explorer Program,
for their interest in the gubmint.
Also a Valdosta City Council member (Sandra Tooley, although Chairman Bill Slaughter didn’t name her), and Carl Smith.
Plus Tax Commissioner Felicia Williams.
He didn’t name any of the regulars in the room,
yet the welcomes took more than a minute which, plus the minute for
the invocation and prayer, that was two minutes of non-business in the entire 5 and a half minute meeting, so that was only 3 and a half minutes of actual meeting.
Which was more than 2.5 minutes of the previous morning’s Work Session.
It does make you wonder: where and when do they actually discuss the county’s business, and why isn’t it in the public meetings?

That’s 2:39 for all business in Monday’s Work Session of the Lowndes County Commission, except for
a report at the end about a new county agent.
The whole thing took less than 5 and a half minutes, according to their own clock.
Valdosta City Council Sandra Tooley showed up at 5:35, just before they adjourned, and wondered what happened.
You ever get the feeling they discuss business somewhere other than in public m eetings?

Monthly Meeting Agenda
Record low attendance, not record but very short session time,
even with a full agenda;
at least you can see last month’s last Lowndes County Commission Regular Session in these LAKE videos.
They meet again 8:30 AM this morning.
County Engineer Mike Fletcher said
the Beaver Lane closing
previously came up in 2002 and was denied,
but now some of the opponents from then are for it.
Tonight is not the public hearing: merely a determination on scheduling a public hearing. Continue reading →
