Washington County Commissioners will award bids for filters and oil/lube at their Thursday, June 8 meeting.
Public Works Supervisor Dean Davis explained during the Tuesday, June 6 workshop that one bid was received for filters, and two bids were received for oil and lube.
No bids were received for tire repairs. Davis recommended that the County re-bid the tire repairs to consolidate the process – rather than having two separate bids, one for large tires and another for small tires, the process could be bid as a package for both large and small tires.
“We need to get this in place before July 1,” said Davis, noting that the filters, oil/lube, and tire repairs are annual contracts.
Commissioners will consider the bids for filters and oil/lube at their June 8 meeting.
Commissioners will also discuss recommendations to the Sandersville School Building Authority. Six names will be considered for the Commissioners to present to the Authority. The Authority will ultimately select four individuals from those six names in order to fill four vacancies.
At the Thursday, June 8 meeting, Commissioners will adopt the fiscal year 2018 budget resolution as well as a budget amendment concerning the fiscal year 2017 budget.
During the workshop, Chairman Horace Daniel asked Tax Commissioner Jeannette Anderson to explain the tax assessments that were recently mailed.
Tax Commissioner Anderson stated that the Assessment Notices that were mailed did not reflect the 9.698 mill rate; it reflected the mill rate without the rollback.
“It’s making people think they’re going to pay 2.4 mills more, so it does make them think that the taxes have gone up,” said Anderson. “It was an error on the Assessment Notices.”
Chairman Daniel stated that he wanted the public to know about the issue.
“We are trying to explain to people that unless your value goes up – it should be right around what it was last year,” said Anderson.
The Washington County Board of Commissioners’ meeting will take place on Thursday, June 8 at 9 a.m.
