JULY 15, 2014

The Gordon County Board of Commissioners held a Work Session Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. in the conference room of the Administration Building.

Vice Chairman Steward called the meeting to order.

The Board discussed each item on the Regular Meeting agenda and made no changes or additions.

Mr. Barry Hice, Director of Public Works Department came before the Board to discuss the proposed 2014/2015 paving list. Mr. Hice gave a comprehensive explanation of how and why a road may be rated and be added to a list for maintenance work to be done. He advised that his department does not build roads; they perform maintenance on currently existing roads. New road projects are extremely expensive. He stressed that safety is at the top of a list of criteria and his department does not wait for paving approval, a safety problem rates an automatic response from his department.

Commissioner Cunningham made a motion to close the work session. Commissioner Sexton seconded the motion and all voted aye. There being no further business the meeting adjourned at 5:45 p.m.
