It appears “The Historian”, Comm. Carl Pennamon, has told Comm. Trammell and perhaps the rest of the BOC, that Jasper County quit installing driveway culverts around 2008. Well, his memory was only off about 10 years!
It seems the County has no one that can retrieve previous ordinances or resolutions.
Here’s a copy of the ordinance that was adopted July 1, 1998 after a public hearing on the matter. The county has not been installing driveway culvert pipes for almost 20 years. According to the discussion during the 2/1/16 BOC meeting, some of the county employees just “weren’t clear” on what to do, and didn’t know if they should install driveway culverts or not. (Click on the ordinance to enlarge it.)
Comm. Trammell also had to get a plug in by implying the only time all 5 of these commissioners can get together and discuss anything is at their monthly 2 hour meeting. Has he never heard of work sessions to discuss issues and concerns?
Jasper County has 3 commissioners up for election this year. Let’s elect the right folks who will best represent us!
