On Monday evening, the Emanuel County Board of Commission held what very well might have been its shortest regularly scheduled monthly meeting of the year to date. With little action and little discussion, the biggest takeaway for the public is the commissioners are still seeking interested persons to serve on the hospital authority board.
County Administrator Guy Singletary explained to The Crossroads upon the 10-minute meeting’s conclusion that anyone interested in serving on this particular board should send a letter and résumé to the county office (P.O. Box 787, Swainsboro, GA 30401) by the end of the month in order to be considered.
The commission also heard during the meeting an update about the scales at the transfer station, an RFP for a particular piece of heavy equipment, and job opportunities with the County of Emanuel.
The removal of the old scales at the transfer station began July 28, and temporary scales were used until the new ones could be set. As of August 13, the station, scales included, were back to normal operations. The commission unanimously voted to approve the purchase of the new scales back in June.
Furthermore, Singletary stated the county is currently awaiting a request for proposal on a front-end loader. Look for updates about this matter in a future edition of The Chronicle.
Lastly, the board heard about several job openings throughout county departments. The county is looking to hire a solid waste collection driver and a facility maintenance tech. Anyone with a commercial driver’s license is invited to apply. To do so, visit https://www.emanuelco-ga.gov/Jobs.aspx. (This URL also has a number of other job postings that do not require CDLs.)
The only bit of action taken by the board on Monday night was the unanimous approval of the minutes from a regular meeting held on July 19 and a called meeting on July 28.
Commissioners Keith Thompson and James Canady were absent.
The board of commissioners will next meet September 20 at 6 p.m. inside the board room of the John C. Coleman Hotel.
