Montgomery Commission Considers Amendment to Timber Ordinance
A resolution to amend the county’s Timber Operations Ordinance was among the items considered by Montgomery County Commission at its regular monthly meeting on January 11. Among other issues, the amendment concerns protecting the county road system from damage caused by timber harvesting operations. The measure is being amended to comply with Georgia House Bill 897. A copy of the proposed amendment is on file in the Office of the Clerk, Montgomery County Superior Court, and is available for review by members of the public. The proposed amendment can also be accessed by visiting the county’s website: www.montomerycountyga. gov.
The Commission reviewed a request for qualifications and selected an engineering firm for a Community Development Block Grant project to improve Hardeman Road and Bowtie Circle. The Commission awarded the project to Goodwyn Mills Cawood engineering firm of Savannah.
The Commission appointed Mount Vernon City Councilwoman Elizabeth Williams to the Heart of Georgia Board and voted to return Leland Adams and Clarence Thomas to their roles a chairman and vice-chairman, respectively.
