Vidalia Asks County for Help with Recreation Complex
Wednesday, 11 March 2009

March 11--  The city of Vidalia is asking Toombs County to pay for lighting of a new adult sports complex located between Vidalia and Lyons.

City officials say the complex on the Ezra Taylor Road will be open to all residents of the county and will provide two softball fields for adults plus a concession stand, control tower, bathrooms and parking.  

Vidalia has committed $1.8 million to develop the 56-acre site and is requesting the county pay nearly $200,000 to light the complex.  It also wants the county to follow through on a promise made by former county chairman Charles Rustin to pave nearly a mile of the access road.

Commission chairman Buddy West asked Commissioners Skeeter Toole and Roy Lee Williams to study the lighting request and make a recommendation to the full commission.   West also said he would place the paving request on the county's list of roads for paving which is provided to the state Department of Transportation.

Also at their March meeting, the commission reappointed Reid McArthur, Willis NeSmith and Larry Threlkeld to the Toombs County Hospital Authority.
