Chairman Maddox called the meeting to order and asked for an Acceptance of the Agenda of the Millage Rate.   Commissioner Holman made the motion to accept the Agenda and strike Item No. V, “Emergency SPLOST Matters/Bids.”  Commissioner Harper seconded. 

 

Chairman Maddox stated the purpose of this meeting is to notify the public that the millage rate quoted in the paper is going to stay the same.  He said there was an error in the numbers stated in the newspaper for the City of McDonough’s and the City of Locust Grove’s percentages.  The millage is staying exactly the same as it was when the Board adopted the millage rate.  Chairman Maddox said by law, the Board has to bring this before the public and explain why the numbers were different in the newspaper where a typographical error was made. 

 

When Commissioner Holman began to make a motion, Commissioner Freedman interrupted and stated, “point of order.” He said the Board had a motion to approve the Agenda and it was not voted on.  Chairman Maddox said there was a motion to adopt the Agenda for the Millage Rate; the motion carried 5-0-0 with Commissioners Harper, Holman, Freedman, Holder and Adams voting in favor.

 

Commissioner Holman made the motion to readopt the millage rate resolution into the record; Commissioner Adams seconded.  The motion carried 5-0-0 with Commissioners Holman, Adams, Freedman, Harper, and Holder in favor.

 

Commissioner Holman made the motion to adjourn the public millage meeting at 6:37 p.m.; Commissioner Adams seconded.  The motion carried 5-0-0 with Commissioners Holman, Harper, Adams, Holder, and Freedman voting in favor.
