Less than a million tax dollar expenditures to be decided upon Tuesday
after discussion Monday,
by the Lowndes County Commission.
Not counting future expenses from accepting streets for a subdivision,
and not county almost half a million in insolvent taxes to be written off.
Wine license, Subdivision Infrastructure
Acceptance of Infrastructure for Two Oaks Subdivision Phase II,
will result in ongoing tax dollar expenses for sending school buses, sheriff, fire and rescue, and repairs to water and sewer and streets.
But the County Commission never counts that in its budget.
They also don’t count as related however many millions they’ve already spent preparing roads, water, and sewer for a subdivision.
Also not included is the $437,823.30
to be written off the tax rolls as insolvent,
due to statute of limitations, moved property out of the county, etc.,
at the request of the Tax Commissioner.
Not the same as the Valdosta-Lowndes Development Authority:
“The terms of Commissioner Clay Griner, Mr. Crawford Powell, and Mr. Barry
Broome to the Lowndes County Development Authority will expire on June 8, 2021. They have all expressed
an interest in being reappointed.”
I wonder what this was about, in the
Minutes of the previous Work Session?
“County Attorney, Walter Elliott, requested in writing, that the regular session minutes be revised regarding the motion to enter the executive session meeting.”
The board packet, received in response to a LAKE open records request,
