Toombs Gets Line of Credit
Wednesday, 14 October 2009

October 14--  Toombs County commissioners have a $1.5 million dollar line of credit to pay county expenses for the remainder of the year.

County manager Doug Eaves told commissioners Tuesday the county will draw on the account at the People's Bank and will pay five percent interest for any funds loaned.  The county must pay off the loan by December 31st.

The county is also proceeding with preparation to build two more trash and recycling convenience centers.  Grading contracts for $26,000 each were awarded to McLendon Enterprises of Toombs County for work at centers planned for Gibson Road and Tomlin Road.

Another contract for $10,000 has been awarded to Sikes Brothers of Metter to repair damage to county roads caused by a private company hauling dirt from the ponds being built at the new Hawks Point Golf Course.  Eaves said the county may have to go to court to recoup damages from Copper Construction. 

Meanwhile, county attorney Howard Kaufold told commissioners a hearing on the county's legal battle with the Silverado Ballroom is delayed to a date to be determined.  The county wants a judge to help it enforce a noise ordinance which it claims the club has violated.

Toombs Commissioners have a called meeting Tuesday at four p.m. to approve the county's property tax rate.
