Adult Literacy Center to House Elections, Commission Functions

The Montgomery County Commission, in its regular monthly meeting on February 13, adopted a resolution to repurpose an existing structure for use by the new county Board of Elections and Registration, as well as by the County Commission.

A portion of the Adult Literacy Center on Richardson Street in Mount Vernon will provide office space for elections and registration services, as well as meeting space for the County Commission. The building will continue to house Job Training Unlimited, Inc., and will be renamed Montgomery County Annex.

The building was originally used by Southeastern Technical College for adult education, but STC relocated these services to the Economic Development Center in Vidalia and has not used the Richardson Street structure for this purpose for some time, said Montgomery County Manager Brandon Braddy. The structure was built with a Community Development Block Grant with a 20-year obligation to be used for adult education. This agreement expired last year, Braddy said.

In other business, the County Commission adopted a resolution to amend its General Fund Budget to transfer $531,553 to its Capital Projects Fund to cover a portion of the cost of improvements to the Sheriff’s Office and 911 Center in Mount Vernon. Additional SPLOST money may be used to supplement the funds the county has expended from its general fund for the approximately $1.2 million project.

The Commission also approved its audit engagement with McNair, McLemore, Middlebrooks & Co., LLC, for the County’s FY 2022 audit.
