The Parker Meadows Discussion at the 04-09-2013 meeting of the Macon County Commissioners

Parker Meadows Disco 04-09-2013

It is my firm belief that one cannot properly report what happened during the hour long presentation and ensuing discussion (an hour of the 2 hour and 25 minute long meeting was devoted to this) about the Parker Meadows Property in the few short paragraphs local papers will devote to it. They will, by political design and/or space requirements, leave out crucial elements of the discussion and points raised by each county commissioner. After you watch the video I have embedded below, please take the time to read each of the local papers version of the events.

In particular, the main purpose the commissioners kicked the can down the road yet again and meeting again on Friday is to determine whether or not dirt can be moved from outside the floodplain to inside the floodplain on the same piece of property. Commissioners Beale and Corbin tried to phrase the question differently so that the question is not so narrow, but that is the crux of the whole thing.

Here is the video of the entire discussion so that you can see and hear it for yourself as if you were at the meeting and not having to rely on a very short summarizing report. I will replace this with an HD Video by early next week.

The commissioners will be meeting again on Friday night at 6pm and I'll be there to record that meeting as well.
