New Toombs BOE Members
Thursday, 10 January 2013

January 10-- Three new members of the Toombs County school board took their oaths of office Thursday night at the school board's first meeting of the new year.

ImageTrent Akins representing District 2, Toni Wilkes from District 6 and Michael Grimes from District 4 were sworn in by Toombs County Probate Judge Larry Threlkeld.  They replace three former board members who had 50 years combined experience on the school board.

After reviewing the system's financial report, School Superintendent Dr. Kim Corley noted expected increases in health insurance cost and alerted the board that an increase to the school property rate may have to be considered to pay for budgets in the future.

She also briefed the board on the projected timeline for building of the new Toombs County High School.  Dr. Corley said construction could start as early as this July and be completed by May, 2015.

The school board elected District 1 board member Russ Benton to serve as the board vice-chairman and voted to keep the school board meetings this year the same as in the past, the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. 

It also voted to award a $16,400 contract to Bridgecom for the purchase and installation of 32 digital security cameras at Toombs County High School.
