New Business:
  • Great American Cobbler Company/ Georgia Berry Company RLF- Brown stated everything was “on track” with the requested RLF loans and should be dispensed in the very near future. Linda Carroll had sent a checklist to both companies to finalize and everything was up to par. Brown stated that once we know the exact dollar figure it will need to be put in the Clinch County News. Brown also stated that between the City and the County we will be able to fund both projects.
  • Mauser- Brown stated that Mauser has asked the DA to help them fund improvements to the lighting and sprinkler system in the building they rent from the DA.

  • Brown recommended approval of the request. Metts made a motion to approve and James seconded.
  • Clinch County Board of Education- Lori James presented a slide show on the proposed New School for Clinch County. She gave an overview of the cost and what the local community would be responsible for. Many questions were asked and she was able to provide much information.
