Only want to state that it was the decision of the Board of Commissioners to give the building to the city of Williamson, not the library board. The majority of the board was in favor of developing a branch in Williamson. Now the library board is out $30,320 of impact money which was spent to move and set up the building. This money is badly needed to help maintain main library as well as provide for future needs.
Thumbs up for that one Lynn. You go girl. Now tell us the commissioners who voted for this.
It is time to get tough on incumbents and the way they handle our tax dollar. Please tell us also who the County Manager was?
The building was GIVEN to the city of Williamson at the Sept 9, 2009 meeting. Not sure who was in office at that time. As a current member of the library board, I feel the funds taken from the impact fees need to be reinstated, as the county library really needs access to those funds.
Pike has local talent in the paving business. I do not understand a paving company from Americus getting the contract to pave the library parking lot. They are done and gone now and so is the county manager, both 80 miles from here.
Working on it. Seems Americus really liked Pike County and 160 miles roundtrip was just to help our rural county out. Always remember the famous quote by Marro, "I hired outside the county because I did not think anyone in Pike was smart enough for the job." Marro hired Dawn Dickerson as the Planning Director. All Pike knows the rest of that story.
