Camilla - Two south Georgians are appointed by Governor Sonny Perdue to be on the 911 Advisory Council.

Mitchell County 911 Director Clark Harrell is one out of ten who will develop guidelines for statewide emergency systems.

Right now, there are 14 counties in Georgia that do not have a 911 service. Harrell says, "As a 911 director in south Georgia, I try to be involved on the state level with things that are going on. State level issues effects us here in Mitchell County and southwest Georgia."

District 4 Miller County Commissioner India Taylor was also appointed to the Advisory Council by Governor Perdue.
