Colquitt County citizens upset over land proposal

September 29, 2005

Moultrie- A newly proposed Colquitt County land use ordinance has residents up in arms. It was standing room only at Thursday's county commission work session.

More than 150 irate citizens packed the meeting room at the Colquitt County annex. They don't like the numerous new land usage rules in the proposed ordinance.

"We've got a minor subdivision law, we've got a major subdivision law, we've got well permits, septic permits, electrical permits I think that covers basically what we've done for 200 years and the county's been very successful," said land owner, Donald Dalton.

Citizens won't get a chance to comment on the proposal until a public comment hearing is scheduled. question the need for the new rules.
