“You have an appointee information sheet in your packet,”
said County Manager Joe Pritchard, and that’s all we learned about
Michael Smith, who did not appear to speak, either,
at yesterday morning’s Work Session.
County Chairman Bill Slaughter did encourage the Commissioners
to send in information sheets on any other nominees they might come up with
for the Tourism Authority
before tonight’s 5:30 PM voting Regular Session.

ATLANTA—July 23, 2013—The first compressed natural gas
(CNG) fueling station developed under the Atlanta Gas Light (AGL)
CNG Program is now open in Valdosta, GA. Approved by the Georgia
Public Service Commission (PSC) in 2012, the program is designed to
expand public access to the CNG fueling infrastructure throughout
the state and enhance Georgia’s role in the emerging CNG market in
the southeastern U.S.
Built and maintained by Langdale Fuel, an affiliate of The Langdale
Company, the new station is the first of five CNG stations awarded
contracts to go into service under the AGL CNG Program. The station
will offer public access to CNG fuel for transportation vehicles,
adding two fueling islands to the company’s existing service station
located at 1628 James P. Rogers Drive.
