County Holds Short Meeting

By Chanin Rotz-Mountz

The Fulton County commissioners condensed their meeting agenda into a morning session Tuesday that included payment of bills and a bid opening ceremony.

On a motion by Commissioner Craig Cutchall, the board of commissioners approved accounts payable in the amount of $319,983.50. Checks issued include payments from the general fund as well as other categories ranging from Hazmat and building construction to emergency shelter and the law library. In addition, payroll and related expenses totaled $97,136.34.

A 10 a.m. bid opening for the sale of 12 pews previously utilized in the courtroom was a bust. No members of the public appeared for the opening nor were there any bids submitted for consideration.

The commissioners moved to hire Amanda Abbey as a Caseworker 2 in the Services for Children building retroactive to August 30.

Tim Stanton, who currently serves in the capacity of county right-to-know officer, sat down with the commissioners to further discuss possible clarifications to the recently adopted records request policy. Further discussion or action was tabled until Commissioner Bonnie Mellott Keefer could be in attendance.

The commissioners also viewed the current status of the ongoing renovation work.
