County tables dress ordinance until 2014


County commissioners met for their final meeting of the year Monday night, and agreed to table discussion of an appropriate dress ordinance. Discussion has been tabled previously, as commissioners have requested more time to study the matter before an ordinance is proposed.

In other business, commissioners voted to award a curb and gutter project for the new county public works facility. The funds, in the amount of $23,631.25, will come from SPLOST money. Rountree Construction has been awarded the bid. 

Commissioners also approved adding Old Omega Road back to the state roads system as a connector for State Road 35. 

The board agreed to send a proposed lease back to Behavior Health, on Tifton Eldorad Road. The lease has been altered slightly to make it uniform with other leases the county has, with no major changes, County Manager Jim Carter said.  

The monthly rent for the facility is $6,800.

Commissioners also voted in favor of a resolution for a lease purchase agreement with ACCG for BB&T financing for radio equipment for the new 911 facility. The board also moved in favor of a resolution for a lease purchase agreement for financing for vehicles for the Tift County Sheriff’s Department.

Commissioner Buck Rigdon was not in attendance.
