I will say thechatter in the hall after the meeting suggested thatpersonal lawsuits may insue from the statements ofcommissioners. The justification of the county thwarting the transfer ofthe 168 acres purchased from the city of Atlanta for theairport is also a point of contention that in one breath isa no-brainer, in another may ...

  2. Appointment's to IBA 'skipped' In a scene that conjured nervous laughs, the Paulding Board of Commissioners efforts to move along in the agenda literally ground to a halt as no motion - even motions to table the appointments of Matt Buzzelli and Alan Shipp to the Industrial Building Authority - seemed able to pass, or in many cases, even gain a second. The scenario of motions that either died for lack of a second, or were seconded only to fail to gain a majority was replayed like a broken record to the amusement of the gallery - so much so that Pat Tibbits, clerk of the Commission warned the crowd that the incident was not funny. Still motions were offered and rejected for denying the appointments, tabling the appointments, approving the appointments with no majority for going on fifteen minutes. The scene was based on the commissions annual housekeeping task of making appointments - most are re-appointments - to the various county boards, commissions and authorities. While the vast majority of the appointments were passed along as the housekeeping task it normally is, three re-appointments were targeted for controversy - those to the IBA (above) and the reappointment of Kerry Tidmore to the Airport Authority. The contentiousness surrounding the appointments was expected as the three anti-airport post commissioners elected in last May's Republican primary have made it a point to thwart, punish, convince to resign, or threaten to remove from office any they feel they can reach that they feel had anything to do with the decision to pursue a commercial airport license. That included virtually everyone with a seat on the Industrial Building Authority and Airport Authority. The bombshell dropped by Commission Chairman David Austin, prior to the afternoon meeting, was a legal opinion rendered by Marietta attorney and former Governor Roy Barnes, who wrote a letter suggesting that appointments to the IBA and Airport Authority were in the exclusive domain of the Commission Chairman. The legal opinion letter went on to say that the confirmation votes by the post commissioners sitting as the BOC were at best, a courtesy conveyed by the Chairman. Part of the basis for that is there was no legislative change associated with the appointment power of the county's CEO - the Chairman - for these posts in county government from the time Paulding had a single Commissioner/ordinary and that elected Ordinary had that exclusive power. Post III Commissioner Vernon Collette objected and disputed that opinion but apparently was more inclined to support Mr. Buzelli for re-appointment to the post. His support for Mr. Buzelli conflicted with the desire of Post II Commissioner Todd Pownall, who had up until today, appeared to be the leader of the three insurgent commissioners and, because of the majority vote he seemed to control, the tacit chairman. Indeed, it is widely anticipated that Mr. Pownall will challenge former Post I Commissioner David Carmichael for the chairman's position in next May's primary election. Mr. Carmichael has already announced for that position and resigned earlier in November in order to save the county money by scheduling his replacement's election to coincide with the Super-Tuesday Presidential Preference Primary in Georgia this spring. The matter was finally resolved when Mr. Pownall, who had been insisting on the formal rejection of all appointments gave in and allowed the matter to be tabled until January after it was agreed that the county attorney would gather other legal opinions from the ACCG and/or other attorney's. The belief is those opinions would state the appointment power of the Chairman was not as great as he asserted and that the post commissioners' approval of the Chairman's appointments to the IBA and Airport Authority are more than a courtesy. Chairman Austin asserted that the current members will continue to serve at his pleasure beyond their stated terms and may, depending on the results of the opinions and/or yet another court case, have their appointments renewed on the Chairman's authority.

  4. The Paulding Board of Commissioners met today with a work-session this morning that made up for the snow-day cancellation of the last meeting in February. The commission will meet again next Tuesday for the regular first March meeting. While there were many topics on the agenda as well as a bevy of citizens wishing to speak, the Chairman came back to a constant point of contention in his administration - litter in Paulding and had several of the county staff address this perennial issue.

  5. Here is the video from the evening meeting. We will add more about what happened after viewing Today's Paulding County BOC meeting was one peppered with speakers both for and against the airport, each making points to pursue their position on the topic by speaking for and against the summary removal of appointed board members. Motions to remove those members who were appointed by the BOC whose terms extend through 2015 and beyond were introduced two weeks ago by airport opponent Todd Pownall, whose efforts are directed to derailing the project since it became a political cause celeb late in the fall of 2013. Those efforts went nowhere until the primary in May 2014 when, in a historically low turnout - primaries are usually in July - highly organized anti-airport forces elected two new post commissioners giving the Post 2 commissioner the votes he hopes will reverse the county's pro-growth agenda. State law, while not definitive, does suggest that the removal of current appointees by the insurgent commissioners is an over-reach but, as those who oppose the airport seem to be well funded for court battles, such legal technicalities may not be adequate without a test in court. That vote - whether to seek removal or just table the issue - along with another vote on whether persons living in subdivisions regulated by the county's basic subdivision code can keep pet chickens - will be decided later this evening.

  6. Below is the text of a letter I sent to the Paulding BoC this morning (format changed slightly and personal information redacted): ************************************************************************* 0000 Xxxxx Xxxx Drive Acworth, GA 30101 October 15, 2014 Open Letter to the Paulding County Board of Commissioners Mr. David Austin, Commission Chairman Mr. Dave Carpenter, Post I Commissioner Mr. Todd Pownall, Post II Commissioner Mr. Tommie Graham, Post III Commissioner Mr. David Barnett, Post IV Commissioner 240 Constitution Boulevard Dallas, GA 30132 RE: Thad and Melissa Morrison Gentlemen: I have lived in Paulding County for almost 12 years, and am a registered voter (who voted for Mr. Austin and Mr. Barnett). I have been troubled for a number of years by the County's handling of the lawsuit of Thad and Melissa Morrison against it for what the Morrisons allege to be offenses committed against them. I wouldn't know Thad or Melissa from Adam's housecat if I met them on the street. They may be certifiable lunatics for all I know. But what I do know is that their lawsuit was never deemed to be frivolous and was never thrown out. I also know that the County spent over $1.5M taxpayer dollars in fighting this lawsuit. I also know one or more settlements were offered to the Morrisons, but they were rejected for whatever reason(s). The Morrisons were well within their rights to reject any settlement they deemed to be unsatisfactory. Their stated desire was to have the case adjudicated in a court of law before a jury of their peers, but that never happened because they ran out of money. The horrifying denouement of this situation came on Friday when the Morrisons were evicted from their home due to foreclosure by the lender. Obviously they could have chosen to stop fighting the County and pay their house payments instead. However, they had a Constitutional right to petition the government for a redress of grievances and they were denied that right. In the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America from the State of Great Britain, after the list of many offenses committed by the King of England against the Thirteen Colonies, comes this paragraph: In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. Therefore, it is no accident that the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. When this all began, a different county administration was in place; however, it's disappointing that even though the makeup of the BoC has changed, it would appear that the attitudes and approach towards the Morrisons never did. Likely we will never know the truth about what happened (including the contamination of their drinking water) because of your success in finally killing the Morrisons' attempt to seek redress by outlasting their ability to continue to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars of legal bills for them over the eight years since the suit was originally filed. (And if they could not prevail spending that much money and lasting that length of time, there is no hope for the rest of us.) As it happens, I am in the process of moving to another county to be near my sister and nephew, who have no other relatives within a five-hour radius. I love my home here and am loath to sell it; however, I can assure you on the day I hand the keys to the new owner, I will happily knock the dust of Paulding County off my shoes. I am sickened by the thought of the Morrisons' eviction from their home of these many years and their possessions sitting on their lawn awaiting friends and neighbors to help cart away. But it is a fittingly sorry end to a sorry saga. It is my humble opinion that the leaders of this county have proven themselves to be no better than King George III in denying fundamental freedoms to the citizens of this county (and adding insult to injury, by using our tax dollars to do it). In this matter, as well as in a number of other matters, the King George III of Paulding County Government has crushed the Thirteen Colonies of the rights of the citizens of Paulding County. I Am Thad and Melissa Morrison. Sincerely, (original signed by) Xxxx X. Xxxxxx (678) 000-0000 /jmg cc http://paulding.com (The New Internet Cafe forum) http://dallashwy.com (General Discussion forum)

  8. The Paulding Board of commissioners voted unanimously to lower the millage rate on the taxable property in the county rolling back the tax rate to compensate for increased values. The commission also did some other business including approving plans for the expansion of video surveillance on the Silver Comet Trail. Public support for that project in the wake of the savage and senseless beating of a resident on the trail in late July. Early in the meeting the commission was given a report by the county's new Ambulance Service which took over EMS activities in January.

  10. Paulding County's actions to fund expansion of the Airport to make it viable for commercial use through public bonds was affirmed by the Georgia Supreme Court today. The county, which approved bonds for a runway expansion, was challenged by two residents whom many believe were proxies for the interests of Delta Airlines and HJIA, who oppose any other commercial airports in the Atlanta region. Above is an interview with Paulding Board of Commissioners Chairman David Austin, who is pleased with the decision. Click for RECENT TOPICS click for RECENT TOPICS click for RECENT TOPICS
