County Conversations
ACCG leadership had the opportunity to meet with Governor Brian Kemp to discuss county legislative priorities. Pictured from left to right: ACCG Executive Director Dave Wills, ACCG President & Oglethorpe County Chairman Billy Pittard, Governor Brian Kemp; ACCG 1st Vice President & Jefferson County Commissioner Johnny Davis and ACCG Legislative Director Clint Mueller.
Oconee County at the Capitol
Members of the Oconee County Commission spent part of Tuesday at the State Capitol this week discussing county legislative issues with their delegation. Visiting your legislators while they are at work under the Gold Dome is one of the most effective ways to make your voice heard on important issues that can impact your county. Use ACCG's weekly Legislative Update and Facebook Live sessions - both available each Friday - for hot issues to discuss.
Investing in Rural Development
Bill Twomey and Mary Beth Brownlee, part of ACCG's County Consulting team, participated in the Rural Prosperity Council meeting held at the Commodore Conyers College and Career Academy in Dougherty County this week.
Troup County Connections
Troup County held three "Coffee with a Commissioner" opportunities around the community this week. Commissioner Morris Jones met with constituents at LaGrange Active Life.
Blazing Trails in Henry County
The Henry County Board of Commissioners recently broke ground on the Panola Mountain Greenway Trail PATH project which will tie-in to the trail network located on the east side of S.R. 155 at Panola Mountain State Park.
Life Saving Donations Put to Work
Taliaferro County Fire Chief Andrew Foot briefed the Board of Commissioners on the acquisition of two important emergency medical devices: a Lucas Device Automated CPR Machine (donated by Wilkes County EMS), and a Phillips Cardiac Monitor/Defibrillator/EKG Unit (donated by Goldcross EMS of Augusta).
