County Commissioners Tuesday met to discuss several matters including the election of chair and vice chair of the board. During the regular session, Commissioner Bud Lott nominated the current chair Marshelle Thaxton and current vice chair Cleve Hartley to remain in their positions. Seconded by Ricky Clark, the board unanimously approved the appointment. In other business, the board tabled a request from Lisa Shanks who was requesting a gaming machine license for L&L Variety on Piedmont Highway. Commissioners said they wanted more time to investigate the request and to get more information on the matter. In a public works committee report, county manger Clinton Lester told commissioners of new regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate methane emissions from landfills. Lester said that the old landfill on Rockmart Highway next to Wimberley Hill will need to be monitored for methane emissions and further action may need to be taken to resolve the possible problem. The commission also voted to purchase a used fire truck to replace the one that was totaled back in 2009. The unanimous vote was to not spend in excess of $85,000. According to Lester, funding will come from available S.P.L.O.S.T. funds and from insurance. He also updated the commission on ongoing projects around the county, including bridges and drainage ditches currently under construction.
