The Lumpkin County Water and Sewer Authority will request commissioners issue a letter to Georgia Mountain Regional Commission asking for its assistance in the preparation of an application for funding to make improvements in the county water and sewer system.

City Council meeting set Monday, June 1

News

DAHLONEGA, Ga. – The Dahlonega City Council will hold its Monday (June 1) meeting via teleconference utilizing Zoom. To join the meeting, go to – https://dahlonega.gov/mayor-and-council/city-council-meetings/  Find the meeting invite you would like to attend, OR—Click on the hyperlink.

Council is expected to approve a resolution to move forward with the creation of a Stormwater Utility Enterprise Fund to be established in conjunction with the FY21 budget. The resolution authorizes city staff to continue to work with its stormwater consultant in development of a Stormwater Utility User Fee Credit Manual and Ordinance and to continue meetings with key potential customers and conduct public information meetings. A formal vote on adoption of the appropriate ordinance will occur concurrent with the adoption of the 2021 budget.

Mark Buchanan will provide an informational update on the Columbarium project. The Columbarium Committee has completed reviews of the proposals submitted resulting in the selection of Eickoff Columbarium as the vendor for the procurement of an Ossuarium.

The 80 niche Canterbury with Ossuarium is approximately $46k. However, there will be some add-ons and room for negotiation for a slightly different product. The Ossuarium is a deviation from earlier plans, but the lure of the 180 Ossuarium sites and 80 niches, as opposed to 48 niches, offers more opportunities while remaining under budget.

Procurement of the 80 niche Ossuarium will utilize approximately $47k of the $57,653.00 budget set for a Columbarium. Site prep work will be funded with the remainder of that budget as well as funds from the cemetery budget not utilized.

Buchanan will also present an update on the Wimpy Mill Pedestrian Bridge and Kayak Launch Project.

The State of Georgia Department of Natural Resources recently amended the grant to extend the completion deadline to Oct. 15, 2021. The projected completion date is July 2, 2021. The long lead item will be the fabrication of the pedestrian bridge and its installation.

The grant award of $134,501.72 remains the same. The Wimpy Mill Pedestrian Bridge and Kayak Launch Project, partially funded through the Recreational Trails Program grant consists of five major components: Parking lot construction, Pedestrian Bridge manufacture and delivery, Bridge installation, ADA compliant dock construction & delivery and sediment removal at the reservoir.

Staff has collected quotes for each of these components which will be presented during the meeting.

An update of the Morrison Moore Pedestrian Bridge and Sidewalks Project will be presented. A vendor ranking has been established and staff is beginning the negotiation phase with the highest-ranked engineering firm for Preliminary Engineering services, in accordance with GDOT guidelines.

Financial Director Melody Marlowe will present the 2020 amended budget.

COVID-19 will have a major impact on Board of Commissioners agenda items

News

LUMPKIN COUNTY, Ga. – The COVID-19 pandemic will impact a number of issues the Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners will decide when they meet in a voting session Tuesday (April 21) at 6 p.m. in the Administration Building.

That meeting will be preceded by a public hearing at 5:15 p.m. on abandonment of George Avery Road and a work session at 5:30 p.m. The public can view the meetings via teleconference by calling 1 929 436 2866. The ID to access the public hearing is 937 8088 2957. ID for the work session is 912 0787 2266. ID for the voting session is 927 2337 3831.

Agenda items affected by the virus range from renewal of county employees’ health insurance plan to the expansion of the county’s senior center.

A new county employee health insurance plan with a small premium increase to both employer and employee was scheduled to go into effect July 1. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Lincoln Financial has made a decision to assist with certain premiums by keeping the rates at their current level through Jan. 2021.

In 2017, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs granted the county’s request for a community development block grant to expand the senior center with a deadline of Nov. 2019. County commissioners were subsequently granted an extension through May 15, 2020. However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the county is unable to meet the second deadline and commissioners will have to vote Monday on requesting a second extension.

The virus has also made a significant impact on the Park and Recreation Spring Sports program. None of the sports have had any games or meets this year and the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association (GRPA) has cancelled all district and state tournaments. The county has already purchased uniforms for the spring sports teams. Commissioners must decide whether to cancel the season and issue full refunds or account credits, cancel the season and issue refunds, minus the cost of uniforms, choose a start date for an in-house season for the age groups able to form an in-house league for baseball/softball or issue full refunds for Track & Field.

Another agenda item impacted by the virus is the county’s Local Emergency Operations Plan (LEOP).  Staff has been directed to prepare operational plans that detail how essential services will continue to be provided to citizens, given the spread of the virus. The plans will then be incorporated into a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) that would become an annex to the LEOP.

Finally, the Board must vote on a request by Classic Cleaners to have its rent reduced or suspended due to the economic impact of the coronavirus. Classic Cleaners is under contract with Lumpkin County to rent the building in which the business is located. The specific request is to defer May’s payment, and divide it evenly throughout the remainder of 2020.

Other items on Monday’s agenda include:

  • A resolution that the city and county proclaim the month of April 2020 to be Child Abuse Prevention Month, and urge all citizens to recognize this month by dedicating themselves to the task of improving the quality of life for all children and families.
  • Revision of the Lumpkin County Building Committee that includes the addition of four new members.
  • Abandonment of George Avery Road.
  • An update of the Hotel/Motel Ordinance that reflects the role of Host Compliance to manage complaints, renewals, and tax collections.
  • A bond resolution for county recreation projects and refinancing of the Justice Center bond.
  • Development Authority request for an intergovernmental agreement for full-time staff to be added to the county’s financial services and insurance. There would be no impact to the Lumpkin County budget for adding the services as the Authority agrees to pay the Finance Department $350/month for the financial services and add on costs for insurance.
  • Approve a contract with Chattahoochee Group in the amount of $67,325 for the restoration, drainage and improvements of baseball fields at Yahoola Creek Park.
  • Abandonment of a portion of Lawrence Road.
  • Request to sell county-owned right-of-way off Cavender’s Creek Road.

Taylor says design standards bill in Gen. Assembly would harm citizens’ right to self determination

News

DAHLONEGA, Ga. – City Council will consider a resolution presented by Council member JoAnne Taylor in support of locally-established building design standards for residential dwellings during the Tuesday (Feb. 18) work session. The meeting begins at 4 p.m.

Taylor’s resolution is in response to two bills now in the Georgia General Assembly (HB 302 and SB 172) that would prohibit local governments from adopting or enforcing ordinances or regulations relating to or regulating building design elements as applied to one or two-family dwellings.

The resolution states: “Appropriate local design standards and land use policies, established by local citizens in each community, create a diverse, stable, profitable, and sustainable residential development landscape” It further states: “State legislation eliminating locally-tailored approaches to design standards would harm self-determination of citizens to establish community standards.”

If approved, a copy of the resolution will be delivered to each member of the Georgia House of Representatives and Senate representing the City of Dahlonega and be made available for distribution to the public and the press.

Council will also consider a resolution to change its regular meeting dates to the first Monday of each month at 6 p.m. with the exception of the month of September when the meeting would be held Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 8 p.m. If approved, work sessions would move to the third Thursday of each month at 4 p.m.

An ordinance (2020-07) to include regulations and procedures for mobile food truck services operations in the city will also be considered. The ordinance, if approved, would provide for the application procedures, duties of the permit holders, liability and insurance regulations, suspension or revocation of permit and penalties and limitations. It would also outline general public safety aspects such as removal of litter, disposal of liquids, trash receptacles, eating area displays, health department regulations, assignment of locations, power sources, unattended units and fire safety.

Council will also consider an ordinance (2020-11) to regulate parades, assemblies, demonstrations and rallies in public places. If approved, it will amend the qualifications for special events as well as consolidate the ordinances currently in place regarding parades, assemblies, demonstrations, rallies and special events.

Council will consider a staff recommendation to award two separate contracts to Colditz Trucking, Inc. for road work. The first is a contract for (project #2020-005) asphalt leveling and resurfacing of city streets in the amount of $66,917.52. The second contract is for the (LMIG Project #2020-001) for asphalt leveling and resurfacing of city streets in the amount of $100,219.93.

Council will also consider a staff recommendation to award a contract for Barlow Road Improvements (Project 2020-10) including grading complete, erosion control, construction of curb and gutter, drainage structures, pipe and flumes to Townley Construction in the amount of $228,764.60.

Agenda items considered during a work session are generally voted on during the next regular meeting.

Development Authority will hear update on StruXure when it meets Tuesday morning

News

LUMPKIN COUNTY, Ga — The Development Authority of Lumpkin County will meet Tuesday, Jan 21 at 9 a.m. in the County Administration Building, 99 Courthouse Hill.

There will be a project update on StruXure Outdoor, formerly Arcadia, a presentation by Ivana Pelnar-Zaiko, Chairman of the historic Holly Theater, and staff and associate member reports.

StruXure is undergoing an expansion made possible, in part, by bonds issued by the Development Authority and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs’ Georgia Agribusiness and Rural Jobs Act (GARJA).

StruXure manufactures adjustable louvered roof systems for outdoor living spaces. Fast-paced growth has necessitated the need for more space so, when StruXure wanted to purchase the building next door, it approached the Development Authority for help. The Authority issued Industrial Revenue Bonds for the purchase and now leases the facility back to StruXure for the cost of the financing.

Company officials say the new building should be operational this fall. They expect 40 new jobs to be created in the next three years.

Development Authority to discuss Gateway Corridor Monday

News

DAHLONEGA, Ga. – The Development Authority of Lumpkin County will present draft Gateway Corridor Regulations & Design Guidelines when it meets Monday Nov. 18 at 9 a.m. in the Lumpkin County Administration Building, Courthouse Hill.

Development Authority Executive Director Rebecca Mincey said planning for the corridor has been underway for many months. It has been a collaboration of city and county officials based on the input provided by citizens during stakeholder meetings

The Carl Vincent Institute at the University of Georgia has spent months collecting input from everyone about what they want to see. Citizens’ comments dealt primarily with transportation, zoning and aesthetics.

Because it will be such an important presence on the corridor, representatives from North Georgia Health Systems have also been involved in planning.

The architect firm of TSW has presented details about design guidelines with examples of previous projects they have worked on.

Members of the authority will also review financials for Sept. and Oct. 2019 approve minutes of the Sept. and Oct. meetings as well as a draft 2020 budget.

Pesticide Safety Month and Apple Producers Meeting

Outdoors

Hundreds of people get sick each year from inappropriate pesticide use.  Pesticides are used in homes, workplaces, apartments, farms and other places where humans need to control pests such as weeds, insects, fungi, rodents and even viruses. Of the 11 states participating in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) pesticide safety program, workers reported 853 serious injuries from pesticides in 2011.  During National Pesticide Safety Education Month this February, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension personnel are urging homeowners, and all Georgians, to learn more about the safe use, storage and disposal of pesticides.

According to Dr. Mickey Taylor, UGA Extension Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP) Coordinator, “pesticide safety education is key to helping homeowners and pesticide applicators, both commercial and agricultural, safely and effectively use available pesticides to protect their homes and crops and livelihoods.  At the same time, they want to protect themselves, their employees and colleagues from any potential ill effects of pesticide use in addition to protecting their families and neighbors. As good stewards of the land, pesticide users want to preserve our environment for the future.”

UGA Extension’s PSEP promotes the safe, responsible use of pesticides by individuals and commercial groups by providing training programs, materials and educational resources covering pest identification, personal safety, safe storage and disposal of pesticides, environmental protection, pesticide drift and runoff prevention, threatened and endangered species protection, water quality protection, and food safety.

One way that UGA Extension reinforces safe pesticide usage is to conduct workshops, meetings, and trainings in which pesticide usage and safe handling is taught.  One such course coming up is the North Georgia Commercial Apple Production meeting.  It will be held on Wednesday, February 21st at the Gilmer County Public Library on Calvin Jackson Drive in Ellijay.  There are other regional trainings held for producers.  If you would like information about those trainings, contact me in the Gilmer County UGA Extension office.

Dr. Taylor is also the editor of the UGA Extension “Georgia Pest Management Handbook.”  The handbook is revised and published annually.  It has information about labeled pesticides that can be used by homeowners and commercial producers. Copies of the handbook are available for purchase through the UGA market place at ugaextensionstore.com and there are copies in the UGA Extension county offices if you would like to view one before purchase. Remember to always read the label before you use or store any pesticide.
