SPECIAL MEETING MINUTES
JULY 10, 2012
The Gordon County Board of Commissioners held a Special Meeting July 10, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. in the Administration Building Conference Room.
Chairman Bailey called the meeting to order and welcomed everyone.
Representatives from the Cities of Calhoun and Fairmount and the Town of Resaca discussed with the Board the method of distribution of the LOST funds. Gordon County and the City of Calhoun agreed with the recommendations from the ACCG and the GMA that the most equitable method of distribution of LOST funds is to distribute according to the most recent census population numbers. The population, according to the 2010 Census, for the City of Fairmount and the Town of Resaca had dropped, making the distribution of their LOST funding less than the percentage that they had anticipated receiving.
Following a lengthy discussion between all the participants, it was agreed that a seconded meeting would take place in a couple of weeks for a final meeting in order to meet the 60-day deadline for the submission of the Certificate of Distribution to the State Revenue Commissioner.
