Bringing local government to the locals

September 10, 2007

Albany - Folks who live in Putney apparently feel a little left out when it comes to decisions made by the county commission, so the commission is going to them. Commissioner John Hayes says some people in the Putney area have complained about speed limit increases and feel like they are being ignored. He says that's not the case, and to prove it, he's holding quarterly meetings in the area.  

"More or less take the government to those folks. We've got an awful lot of citizens who because of their jobs can't attend our meetings, so I think it useful to provide them updates," said Hayes.   The first meeting will be September 27th at 6:45 at Putney First Baptist Church on Antioch Road.
