It may be another 24 hours before I can get the video out. I apologize for the delay.

The Macon County commissioners will be meeting tonight at 6pm. There will be a service award presentation to county employees and a reception for those employees and newly minted county commissioner James Tate prior to the regular meeting at 5:30pm.

I will be at both events and will cover the meeting via my @ThunderPig twitter account [ ] you can follow the meeting via the previous link or on the widget below the agenda.
