Call to Order by Commissioner Jappy Stringer
Invocation & Pledge
Roll Call Chairman Roy Thompson and Commissioner Curt Deal were absent
Approval of General Agenda
Robert & Lori Lee addressed commissioners about an issue they’ve been dealing with for more than a decade on Grimshaw Lane. The live on the downhill side of where Johnson Run subdivision Phases 1-3 were built when the infrastructure was added, the drainage started rolling to their property. Over the years, the Lees have worked with the county to try to resole the matter and worked to help the county build a drainage ditch between to the two properties to try to redirect some of the water. The new S&S Greenway proposal will impact them on the other side of their property and they have major concerns about how the pavement and runoff will impact their property again. They would like the county to do a Water Impact Survey.
