Agenda Released for February 2020 Commissioner Meeting

From a photo taken in May 2017.

The Macon County Board of Commissioners will be meeting Tuesday night for their regularly scheduled meeting for February 2020. Copy of the public agenda and agenda packet are posted below. While the resolution expressing support or opposition to the Second Amendment Sanctuary is not on the agenda, Macon Media understands there will be people at the meeting both in support and in opposition to such a resolution.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6pm on Tuesday in the Commissioners Boardroom. If more than 49 people show up, they will have to meet upstairs in the large courtroom in order to comply with the fire code regulations. Macon Media will be there and will attempt a live video stream of the meeting.
