Toccoa City Commission, Stephens County Commission Meeting Today

Two local boards will meet today for regularly scheduled meetings.

First, the Stephens County Commission will meet today at 8:30 a.m. in the second-floor courtroom of the historic Stephens County Courthouse in downtown Toccoa.

Commissioners will begin with a work session on agenda items. The business meeting, where commissioners vote on the agenda items, will immediately follow after the conclusion of the work session.

Items on the agenda for today’s Stephens County Commission meeting include consideration of a motion to eliminate the stickers needed for the Stephens County convenience sites beginning March 1 with the following stipulations: no commercial and Stephens County residents only.

Other items on the agenda include consideration of a motion to adopt a resolution authorizing the Stephens County Tax Commissioner to waive certain interest and penalties, consideration of a memorandum of understanding between the county commission and the Mountain Judicial Circuit NCIS Drug Unit, consideration of a variance request from Stephens County Hospital for its proposed wound care center, and budget amendments.

Meanwhile, Toccoa City Commissioners are also scheduled to meet today, with their meeting starting at 9 a.m. today at Toccoa City Hall.

The Toccoa City Commission moved up its meeting due to next week’s Mayor’s Day in Atlanta, which the commission will attend.

During today’s Toccoa City Commission meeting, commissioners are expected to award a bid for a preservation plan, economic market study, and design plan for the Schaefer Center. Two bids were received and opened at last Monday’s meeting.

The work would be paid for with a grant received from the Fox Theatre Institute.

Toccoa City Commissioners are also expected to consider a request for quotes to repair a raw water pump at the Davidson Creek pumping facilities.

Both the Stephens County Commission and the Toccoa City Commission meetings are open to the public.

Following its meeting, the Toccoa City Commission will meet for a work session with the city’s Downtown Development Authority.
