KLVB presentation told us up to three states dump in
the Pecan Row Landfill in Lowndes County,
for which the county gets some unspecified amount of tipping fees,
which go to fund KLVB.
An appointment to
KLVB was added to the agenda,
although nobody deigned to reveal who was “that individual that has
requested to serve on that board”.
Homeland Security grant application turned out to be for defibrillators.

LOWNDES COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
WORK SESSION, MONDAY, APRIL 7, 2014, 8:30 a.m.
REGULAR SESSION, TUESDAY, APRIL 8, 2014, 5:30 p.m.
327 N. Ashley Street — 2nd Floor
at its work session Monday morning and will vote at its
regular session Tuesday evening.
This is about emergency response calls, such as for the fire
in Remerton, when Remerton called Lowndes County, which called
Valdosta, which sent fire trucks to Remerton.
Why the indirect time-consuming call while a fire doubles in size every minute?
Remerton didn’t have a mutual aid agreement with Valdosta, but
did with Lowndes County.
This is the same Commission that went on for 11 minutes
21 February 2011 work session
about a Homeland Security grant for an emergency vehicle,
worring that the county might have to pay to maintain it and might
have to share it with other municipalities.
And then rejected it the next day, if I recall correctly.
What will they think of this mutual aid agreement?
On March 11, a 39-year-old man held in detention at the Stewart Detention
Center, a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in
southwest Georgia, died at a hospital in Columbus.
That’s in Lumpkin, west of Americus, south of Columbus.
To this day, the immediate cause of Roberto Martinez Medina’s death
remains unclear (a press release pronounced the cause of death as
“apparent natural causes”).
Last month, Leonard Odom, 37, died at the Wheeler County Correctional
Facility in south-central Georgia.
That’s in Alamo, GA, between Macon, Tifton, and Savannah.
Both facilities are operated by Corrections Corp. of America, which
has a contract with the Department of Homeland Security to operate the
Stewart center and one with the Georgia Department of Corrections to
operate the one in Wheeler County.
Here’s video of the explanation by county staff
the proposed DHS grant application for an emergency vehicle.
It includes questions and statements from commissioners,
and goes on for almost 11 minutes.
This was at the work session of 21 Feb 2011.
The sound would be better if the county used their own equipment,
which is already purchased and in place in that same room,
to record their own sessions and make them available over the web.
