At the last Lowndes County Commission meeting of 2019,
as Suwannee Riverkeeper,
I complimented Code Enforcement and
asked for support for the Troupville River Camp project.
A WWALS member had called in a complaint to Lowndes County Code Enforcement back in August, about trash at the bottom of the Flying J parking lot at I-75 Exit 2.. It was a big job, involving removing many truckloads of tires, and completely rebuilding the fence, but it was almost finished when I went by there that same Tuesday morning.
About Troupville River Camp, I summarized the WWALS pre-application to the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Program (GOSP) for a river camp like those on the Suwannee River, but this one at the Little River Confluence with the Withlacoochee River, just west of Valdosta.
This method of asking had been requested by the Chairman. The Commissioners already had all the background materials, but I handed them out paper copies just in case.
Twenty days later, Chairman Bill Slaughter sent a letter of support.
One more day remains for any other organizations that want to send in a letter of support.
The rest of the LAKE videos of that December 10, 2019, Lowndes County Commission Regular Session are on the blog of Lowndes Area Knowledge Exchange (LAKE).
