Six minutes and ten seconds yesterday morning
to breeze through the
agenda for the Work Session;
the Lowndes County Commission votes tonight at 5:30 PM.
the Chairman announced
Budget Work Session to start at 9AM,
which didn’t match the posting about that time put on the county’s website.
It probably won’t take them 15 minutes after 8 AM to breeze through this
light agenda, including reappoinging Jeff Sikes to the
increasing “convenience fees for online and telephone payments to $2.50 per transaction”, some I-75 exit work, and a swimming pool at Moody Air Force Base.
Plus a beer and wine license due to the usual change of ownership,
and an HVAC maintenance contract.
LOWNDES COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS

South Carolina’s largest solar farm generated 5% more power
in its first year (2014), and demonstrated that
tracking mounts provide more power in the late afternoon at peak
air conditioning use time.
It took only nine weeks to build, far faster than any pipeline or nuclear project, and you could build enough of these solar farms to produce more energy
in less time than it would take just to permit either of those, much less build them.
However, Santee Cooper could do better about enabling others to install and connect solar power.
Right now, Santee Cooper is making even Duke Energy look good.
The state’s ailing Medicaid program benefited from critical care
Friday, when the House overwhelmingly approved a bill that will make
way for renewal of a fee on hospitals.
Senate Bill 24 will transfer the power to levy the fee — seen
as necessary to avoid a loss of $700 million in funding for the
medical care program that serves low-income Georgians — from
the Legislature to the state’s community health care agency.
