Sound Shakes Normantown
Tuesday, 18 March 2014

March 18--  Residents of the Normantown area are asking the Toombs County Commission to do something about exploding targets which some say sound like bombs.

Steven Bryant and others spoke at the Commission's March meeting Tuesday and asked them to strengthen the county's noise ordinance.  They report someone is firing high powered rifles at the targets in a nearby field.

When a target is hit, it explodes and sends shockwaves throughout the area.  One resident reported a broken window and items falling off shelves inside a house.

Commission Chairman Blake Tillery promised to investigate and coordinate with Sheriff Junior Kight.

It also okayed a contract for $132,051.00 to Southeast Center Line of Vidalia for striping of 35 miles of roads and agreed to buy four new pick-up trucks from Vidalia Ford for $109,767.00.


The March Employee of the Month is Charles "Tad" Bryant from the county Tax Assessor's Office.  (L-R Commissioners Jeff McCormick and Wendell Dixon, Tad Bryant, Chairman Blake Tillery, and Commissioners Roy Lee Williams and Darriell Nobles.
