Commissioners approve delayed Entergy resolution

By Mac Shadix

Attorney Robert Meyers Attorney Robert Meyers After postponing a resolution in support of Entergy building a third unit at an existing power plant south of Huntsville that servers portions of Leon County, the Leon County Commissioners approved the resolution when they were notified that Montgomery County had approved the construction. The plant is in Montgomery County and the Leon County Commissioners wanted to respect the Montgomery County commissioners decision.

The Commissioners met in the Annex I Courtroom at 9:00 a.m. on Monday July 10 for a regular called meeting. The 9 a.m. agenda called for the discussion of claims due and discussion of minutes from previous meetings.

In the 9:30 meeting claims and minutes were approved.

Moving quickly through a relatively short agenda the court approved a new Meals on Wheels agreement.

Attorney Robert Meyers with the firm Mc- Creary, Veselka, Bragg & Allen, P.C. addressed the court about extending the delinquent fines collection agreement that the county has with them for the J.P. courts and the County court to include the District Courts. During the discussion Judge Byron Ryder praised the corporation saying, “They do an outstanding job.” The court approved the new contract.

Commissioner Dean Stanford requested the Court’s permission to operate on private property during the widening of CR112.

Discussion of application for a FEMA Hazard Mitigation grant was discussed and requests for three generators and surge protectors were fielded. “This is the first step of grant application.” Ryder explained to the commissioners.

There was no discussion of high-speed rail issues beyond Judge Ryder’s comment that when the special session of the legislation begins there may be plenty of action. (See his comments in his column on page 3.)

Discussion of the Expo Center pointed out the need for a generator there because of a power failure during the rodeo last Saturday night. Commissioner Stanford also commented that there was a need for ceiling fans over the bleachers.

There were no budget amendments and one line item transfer for a little over $21,000. A donation of $1,190.55 for the Senior Nutrition program was accepted.
