DAHLONEGA, Ga. – The Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners will have a number of new or renewable contracts to discuss when it meets in a work session at 5:30 p.m. today (Feb. 26) in the County Administration Building.
The Board will consider an agreement with the law firm of Blasingame, Burch, Garrard and Ashley to represent the county in potential litigation against contributors to the opioid addiction crisis. If there is no recovery, there is no cost to the county.
Finance Director Allison Martin will recommend the county renew its agreement with Mauldin and Jenkins to perform the county audit.
Allison will also recommend the county contract with Capital Accounts to collect approximately $23,700 in unpaid fees due the Parks and Recreation Department. Capital Accounts charges a percentage of what it collects, so there is no cost to the county.
Senior Center Manager Linda Kirkpatrick will ask the Board to consider approval of an addendum to the Legacy Link contract for senior center operations and the Meals on Wheels Program.
Sheriff Stacy Jarrard will seek a renewal of a contract with Agape Food Service & Catering, Inc. which has provided an inmate catering service for prisoners at the Lumpkin County Detention Center since 2009.
Other items to be considered include:
- The appointment of reappointment of members to the Audit Committee, Development Authority and Water and Sewer Authority;
- Approval of a list of no-longer needed or used items recommended for surplus sale on GovDeals.com;
- A request to include three county roads – Nimblecrest Way, West Woods Drive and West Woods Way — for acceptance into the county’s road maintenance system;
- Two requests by property owners for annexation into the City of Dahlonega;
- A Building Modification Request by EMA Director David Wimpy to close one bay of Fire Station No. 1 to enlarge the Emergency Operations Center;
- A tax refund request filed by Kingwood Dahlonega International Resort.
