County Manager Joe Pritchard thanked county staff for their performance during the recent storms and the public for mostly staying off the roads. It will cost $450 to qualify to run for County Commissioner.

No, we don’t know what was wrong with the sound. We will try to get it better tomorrow evening.

No applicants for the Lowndes County Development Authority Board of Health, and many for the Planning Commission.

Development, Planning, Health Board Appointments, budget, qualifying @ LCC 2018-01-08

Where did they advertise for applications for the three boards on the agenda for tomorrow morning, voting Tuesday evening? Who was the mysterious term expiration on the Development Authority of Lowndes County (not the same as the Valdosta-Lowndes County Development Authority, VLCIA)? If we assume the county’s web page for the Lowndes County Development Authority is the relevant one, it doesn’t say what term expired nor who was in that slot, it just says “Vacant”. However, we can deduce that the missing board member is Jeff Reames, whose seat expired June 8, 2017. When they appointed six members to that board the next month, they did not appoint anyone to that slot, even though Commissioner Mark Wisenbaker asked about that at the time.

Brad Folsom quit the Greater Lowndes Planning Commission to join VLCIA.

Five people want to be appointed: Keven Bussey, Gary Moser, Ed Hightower, and Bart Davis. Also, Franklin Bailey wants to be reappointed.

“Mr.” Myron Faircloth (I thought he was a doctor) resigned from the Board of Health, and nobody is mentioned as wanting to be appointed.
