Chairman’s Report A Letter to The Citizens of Gilmer County From Board of Commissioners Chairman, J.C. Sanford
I have not given you a report in some time and this will be a lengthy one for there are many important issues facing Gilmer County. We have talked about charter changes for the last six months. These are changes I would normally agree with in some form, but in the sensitive times in which we find ourselves, I cannot and will not support these changes right now. They are on the agenda for this Thursday’s workshop at 2 pm. They are also on the agenda for the public hearing that follows at 5:30 pm, and they will be voted on at the regular meeting at 6 pm. If you are concerned about our county, I would suggest you attend these meetings. It would be a that personal favor to me.
