CONSIDERATION OF UNFINISHED BUSINESS
CONSIDERATION OF NEW BUSINESS
RESOLUTION TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT FOR RECEIVING FUNDING FROM THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT
Administrator Ledbetter advised that this is a resolution to open an account in order to receive funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. It is part of what the County has to have in order to get wire transfer for the first allocation of the funding. Because our local banks would have to commit twice their assets to hold the money, this resolution will be to put the funds at the Georgia Fund One. This is where we hold most of our General Fund money that is not in the operating account.
Commissioner Potts made a motion to approve the Resolution to open an account at Georgia Fund One to receive funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. Commissioner Owens seconded the motion and Commissioners Steward, Cunningham, Potts, and Owens voted aye. Motion passed.
Commissioner Cunningham made a motion to adjourn the Regular Meeting. Commissioner Steward seconded the motion and all voted aye.
