Commissioners okay Ga.-Pacific lease negotiations

March 2, 2017




The Columbus County Board of Commissioners didn’t take a formal vote Wednesday night but authorized County Attorney Mike Stephens and Economic Developer Gary Lanier to negotiate a lease with S&A Railroad Ties for part of the county-owned former Georgia-Pacific property.

They also discussed possible disposition of scrap metal at the G-P site. The 83-minute closed session almost didn’t happen.

The board voted 4-3 to enter closed session. Trent Burroughs, Amon McKenzie, Charles McDowell and Buddy Byrd voted to go behind closed doors, while Edwin Russ, Ricky Bullard and Chairman James Prevatte wanted to keep the meeting open.
