Brown: County must focus on quality of life

There is a great deal of speculation regarding what will happen in our county government with the new board composition beginning in 2011. Personally, I believe the real question is what are you and the rest of the citizenry going to do in 2011?

In your hands, my fellow Fayette Countians, more than in mine or the other commissioners, will rest the future success or failure of our county. The true character of our county will be determined by how hard we fight for what we believe in. Read More»

On a 3-2 vote of council earlier this year, DAPC’s $35,000 in funding was removed from the budget, and the authority was informed they would have to subsist on that figure with its mission. Read More»

$400K deemed too much for MacDuff golf cart path

Peachtree City is hoping to go back to its original plan for building a cart path along Camden Apartments that leads from the currently-unused path tunnel underneath MacDuff Parkway.

Camden officials had asked the city to consider a different alternative for the project, but that will be far too expensive, the Peachtree City Council was told last week.

The project would have come it at over $400,000, officials said. The city will ask Camden if it will donate the needed right of way for the less costly proposal, according to City Manager Bernie McMullen.
