The Courtroom at the Chattooga County Courthouse Annex was packed last night for the first monthly County Commissioner’s meeting.  A large crowd turned out to hear Commissioner Jason Winters explain the business of the county over the past four weeks. Winters reviewed several proclamations that had been adopted since he took office, two of which dealt with appointments made by Winters.  The Commissioner said that he had appointed Butch Eleam, Scott Tucker and Eddy Ellenburg to the Board of Directors of the Northwest Georgia Joint Development Authority.  Also the Commissioner told of his recent appointments to the Water District Board. 

Winters also spoke of contracts that the county has entered into over the past several weeks.  The Commissioner renewed a contract with Farrar and Corbin to represent the county in legal matters, and entered into a new agreement with Chrysan Thomas, CPA to provide audit service for the county.

AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio will broadcast the County Commissioners meeting this afternoon at 1 PM and again this weekend on Saturday beginning at 10:30 AM and on Sunday afternoon at 4:30 PM.
