County meeting

The Early County Board of Commissioners were asked to consider door-to-door garbage collection for the elderly at their July 2 meeting.

Two citizens made the request during the public comments section of the meeting at which another citizen asked about the county not participating in the July 14 fireworks. Merritt noted the commissioners had voted earlier not to contribute the requested $1,000.

Commission chairperson June Merritt introduced the County Health Department’s new Environmental Health Specialist and Public Health Nurse Victoria Brown who recently replaced retiring Alida Ward.

The meeting agenda was routine and brief, including a brief reports from county attorney Bill Mills and county administrator Spencer Mueller.

Mueller reported on progress on bids for courthouse roof leaks and painting. He also noted a pre-construction with Oxford on LMIG roads. He also attended the open house for Jakin’s refurbished courthouse.

Merritt announced the county will receive a $11,190 rebate from the ACCG’s property and liability insurance dividend, totaling $3.25 millions, the largest in ACCG’s history. The rebate will be applied to the 2019 premium.

Merritt also thanked the city for their assistance in repairing sewer problems at the library.
