LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Members of a Lee County church are breathing a sigh of relief after a small road battle with a nearby property owner.
Billington Sanders Walker, Junior asked Lee County commissioners to close a portion of Batts Road. Walker says people speed and hunt illegally on the road. He also says it costs more to maintain the road than it's worth.
Members of the Saints of God House of Worship say they use the road to travel to church and the route is important to them not only spiritually but for emergency purposes.
"For the fire department and for the people if they're sick and need to get out, that's the best route and the quickest route to get out of there. This is why this is so important to us," said Pastor Arthur Lee Wright.
Wright told county leaders it would take much longer to take alternate routes to and from the church. Commissioners voted not to close the road.
Lee County commissioners are also keeping a close eye on an embattled recreation facility. Commissioners already appointed themselves to the Parks and Recreation Authority so they can have more input on Grand Island's day-to-day operations but the authority only meets once a month.
Commissioners wanted more of a handle on the golf course. Tuesday night they passed a resolution to require Grand Island's General Manager to report to County Administrator Alan Ours regularly.
"With the County Administrator assisting the Parks and Recreation Authority, on a daily basis he can look at the operation and he can apprise the situation," said Lee County Commissioner Ed Duffy.
Since commissioners began keeping watch over Grand Island, many changes have been made to try to increase revenue.
