Albany -- The newest member of the Dougherty County Commission says she doesn't know enough about consolidation to place it on the board's agenda.
Muarlene Edwards has been on the commission about nine months.
She says she's still learning and studying reports on consolidation but doesn't feel comfortable bringing it up for a vote.
Edwards was elected after the commission came to a stalemate on the issue of consolidation, but she has the power to raise the issue again.
"I'll be meeting with those persons who elected me to help me make those decisions as is good for the district that I serve."
Commissioners John Hayes, Art Searles, and Jack Stone voted against moving the consolidated charter forward.
They could also place the issue back on the agenda for a new vote.
