I did address the county commission on this topic over a year ago – in a public forum at a scheduled meeting.He provided no date nor link, but since this is the only Commission meeting minutes for which I can find his name, I'm guessing this is the one he meant. I've quoted here the relevant item, and I've added paragraph breaks to it to make finding individual speakers' names easier. See also the VDT writeup. I would like to ask people, especially academics, who want to cite sources to actually cite them, not allude to them by some vague description.
LOWNDES COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
Tuesday, June 9, 2009
Chairman Ashley Paulk
Vice Chairperson Joyce E. Evans
Commissioner Richard C. Lee
Commissioner G. Robert Carter
Chairman Paulk called the meeting to order at 5:30 p.m.
REZ-2009-05 Wiregrass Power, LLC, 2637 Old Statenville Hwy, 0164 025. 22.1 ac., E-A to I-S,
County Planner, Jason Davenport, presented the item, stating that both the Planning Commission and TRC recommended approval with conditions.
Chairman Paulk asked those in attendance to be patient with the Commission as the item was considered, since it was an issue that many in attendance may want to speak.
Dr. Michael Noll, 2305 Glynndale Drive, spoke against the request and presented the Commission with a list of questions prepared by himself, Dr. Brad Bergstrom and Mr. Seth Gunning.
Mr. Fred Deloach III, 1411 New Statenville Highway, addressed the Commission requesting that tires and coal be added to the list of prohibited fuel items.
