Chairman Hood called the meeting to order.
County Administrator Ledbetter spoke to the Board regarding the Agenda for the Regular Meeting. He explained the zoning applications and each item on the agenda. There were no changes or additions made to the Agenda.
Mr. John McAfee spoke to the Board regarding Shirley Road, requesting that the County maintain the portion of the road that is unpaved so that they can access it in a safe way. Mr. McAfee asked everyone in the audience who is in support of the request to the Board, to stand and be counted as wanting the Board to respond by scheduling maintenance on that portion of Shirley Road. Approximately 15 people in the audience stood signifying their support.
Mr. Kevin Smith with Little Creek Rentals, LLC came before the Board to request temporary permission for about a year to rent out eight spaces on a lot on Redbud Road and Newtown Road that he owns for temporary use as RV parking. Mr. Smith said he had gotten requests from other RV rental businesses around Atlanta who were trying to help people find space who were fleeing their homes in North and South Carolina because of Hurricane Florence, also some guys that are here temporarily for about a year working on a substation and looking for temporary RV parking. There was a consensus of the Board to give authorize to the County Administrator to get with the Planning and Zoning department and authorize them to get with Mr. Smith and work this out.
Mr. Brian Rosser had requested to speak to the Board and was also on the agenda to speak to the Board about fracking in Gordon County. Mr. Rosser was not in attendance.
Commissioner Cunningham made a motion to adjourn the Work Session. Commissioner Steward seconded the motion and all voted aye.
There being no further business, the Work Session adjourned at 5:49 p.m.
