Fresh from throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at Thursday night’s Rome Braves baseball game, Bartow Commissioner Steve Taylor made quick work of the August agenda. After approving the minutes of the last meeting, he approved the sale of a surplus vehicle, a 1996 Ford van, from the county fleet. Next he approved a feasibility study for the county’s sewer system needs.

“ We are hiring Black and Veatch Corp. in Atlanta, to study the feasibility of expanding sewer lines along the Glade Road corridor in southern Bartow and the Two-Run Creek area near Kingston,” County Administrator Peter Olsen said. “We are analyzing the number of potential customers and the amount of revenue they would add in order for this to work.”

Taylor next approved the millage rate hike without so much as a whimper from the one citizen who attended the meeting.

The county also renewed a services agreement with the Etowah Valley Humane Society for housing rescued animals

The next Bartow commissioner’s public meeting will be held Wednesday Sept. 4 at 10 a.m. in the commissioner’s hearing room.
