Last month, Unscheduled: Laverne Gaskins announced she did not want to be reappointed to ZBOA. Fairway got to put its billboard back up at the new overpass, but only at 50 feet high. Plus in the county, a building location variance and a Family Ties variance were both approved unanimously. They meet again today at 2:30PM. Continue reading
Today at 2:30 PM, Fairway wants to put its billboard back up at the new overpass: way up. Will ZBOA approve a 60-foot-high billboard? Plus in the county, a building location variance and a Family Ties variance.

Here’s a single video of this morning’s entire Lowndes County Commission Work Session. The railroad item was neither of the ones on which I was speculating. The animal shelter wants a 24 hour “cooling-off period” with a submitted animal kept at home before “evaluation” by the shelter. The Tax Commissioner wants to refund some taxes they apparently accidentally overcharged. The Fire Chief has bids for equipment for the new fire truck. And there’s going to be an animal health fair. They vote tomorrow evening at 5PM.

Five minutes? Or will they discuss any of the four items on the agenda for Monday morning’s Work Session?
What’s the CSX project? Is it this item from the T-SPLOST constrained project list?
RC11-000071 Construction of St Augustine Road Overpass
That overpass went from $12,000,000 to $14,627,933.04 during the T-SPLOST selection process. On the ground down there on St. Augustine Road it sure looks like people are preparing for an overpass. Has the county found some non-T-SPLOST way to fund that railroad overpass?
Since it’s CSX, I’d guess it’s not this other T-SPLOST project:
RC11-000077 Georgia and Florida Railway (GFRR) — Valdosta to Willacoochee Rehabilitation
The Commission could just post the proposed agreement along with the agenda, and then we’d all know.
