The Gor­don County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers and County At­tor­ney praised Emer­gency Man­age­ment, E- 911 and county res­i­dents for how smoothly the county han­dled last weeks in­clement weather.

“Court­ney Tay­lor ( Di­rec­tor of EMS) and Deb­bie (Vance, Di­rec­tor of E- 911) kept us up to date on the sit­u­a­tion,” said James Led­bet­ter, county at­tor­ney. “The road depart­ment was able to keep the roads nav­i­ga­ble and we ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery­one’s co­op­er­a­tion dur­ing the event.”

The Gor­don County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers met Tuesday, mak­ing up a gen­eral ses­sion that was can­celled due to the in­clement weather.

The Board ap­proved a con­tract with Gor­don Hos­pi­tal to con­tinue am­bu­lance ser­vice.

“We came up with a rea­son­able con­tract, in­clud­ing a seg­ment of putting to­gether a re­view com­mit­tee to re­view their progress on a quar­terly ba­sis. They have asked for time to re­view the re­quire­ments,” M.L. “Bud” Owens said.

“They have a been a valu­able part­ner for the county. This is an op­por­tu­nity to make it bet­ter,” said Led­bet­ter.

The Board de­clared a 2006 Lexus 4S VIN#58628 as sur­plus for the Sher­iff’s Depart­ment. This was a seized ve­hi­cle cur­rently be­ing used in the De­tec­tive Divi­sion, but has high mileage and some me­chan­i­cal is­sues. Money from its sale would be used to buy ad­di­tional equip­ment. They also de­clared sur­plus a lot of more than 200 mis­cel­la­neous ri­fles, shot­guns, re­volvers, hand­guns, other mis­cel­la­neous as­so­ci­ated scopes, mag­a­zines and hol­sters. Un­der Ge­or­gia law, these must be auc­tioned off by a fed­eral firearms dealer and sold to a fed­eral firearms dealer.
