Videos: farewell Jason Davenport, approval limits, CALEA, personal care home @ LCC 2018-09-11

The county held a ceremony for departing Lowndes County Planner Jason Davenport. I asked the person sitting in his former seat, Engineering/Planning Technician Molly Stevenson, if she was confirmed yet. She would only say it was confirmed that she was sitting there right then.

They also had a 911 CALEA Re-Accreditation Presentation and the Chairman recognized Leadership Lowndes.

Citizens Bob Harlan and Fred E. Blanton Jr complained about road conditions. I thanked Utilities Director Steve Stalvey for sending information about recent Lowndes County sewage spills (two in July), and I thanked him advance for sending the NPDES-permit-required followup testing (not yet received).

On the REZ-2018-16 Stovall rezoning, the applicant revealed the reason for the previous restriction when Continue reading

News about the Naylor Boat Ramp in an Engineering Projects Report! Chad McLeod also reported about the 911 center, the North Lowndes Soccer Complex, the fire warehouse classroom, the animal shelter, and the courthouse renovation project, all still to be completed from SPLOST VII funds, which run out next year. Even with that three-and-a-half-minute special engineering report, the whole meeting took ten minutes Monday morning.

Also not on the agenda, HR has a new employee. Also there will be a new traffic signal.

Should the County Manager and the Finance Director be able to approve 2.5 times as much in dollar value on budgeted items as they currently can?

Also a rezoning to reconfigure for two parcels and another to permit personal care homes, plus a 911 CALEA Re-Accreditation Presentation are on the agenda for 8:30 AM this morning at the Work Session and tomorrow evening’s voting Regular Session.

2015-03-09 rezoning for Stovall property

The rezoning REZ-2018-16 Stovall, 6002 N. Oak St. Ext. to permit personal care homes is “as a result of a potential buyer’s interest in developing the property into an assisted living facility”. This same Tuesday, the same property is on ZBOA’s agenda for a variance on the buffer condition.

The 2015-03-10 agenda for the earlier rezoning from R-21 to C-G, Well & Other did not say anything specifically about private care facilities, nor did the Continue reading

Healthcare town hall in Atlanta tomorrow

Jane Osborn points out this Healthcare Facility Regulation Division Invites you to an Informal Town Hall Meeting on June 22, 2011:
The Department of Community Health (DCH), Healthcare Facility Regulation Division (HFRD) invites you to attend a Town Hall Meeting on the topic, “Establishing Meaningful Distinctions for Levels of Care in Licensed Personal Care Homes, Assisted Living Communities and Nursing Homes”. The Town Hall Meeting will be held in the DCH Board Room, 5th Floor, 2 Peachtree Street, NW on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at 11:30 a.m.

The purpose of this Town Hall Meeting is to provide a forum where interested consumers, providers, advocates, stakeholders and regulators may discuss the topic informally. This informal dialogue will assist the DCH in its development of proposed rules for personal care homes and assisted living communities as a result of the passage of SB 178 which creates a licensure category called assisted living communities. Of course, any rules that the DCH ultimately develops would be taken through an informal rules advisory group process and the public rule-making process. If you are unable to attend the Town Hall Meeting, but would like to provide input on this topic, please feel free to send your input electronically to DCH staff using the following email address: sedoughe@dhr.state.ga.us.

That web page also includes some questions for which DCH wants public input.
