Why do commissioners have public hearings? It appears, only because they are required to have them by law because the public is not able to easily access any of the documents they are supposed to be able to read and comment on.
Here’s the information on the public hearing Monday night—4/3/17 at 6:00PM
Public Hearing for Health Department Issues and Planning and Zoning Issues
The Jasper County Board of Commissioners will hear a public hearing on the following item at their regular scheduled meeting on April 3 2017 beginning at 6:00 pm in the Commissioners meeting room on the basement floor of courthouse.
- A public hearing will be held for rules of the Department of Public Health, for Portable Sanitation Contractors. (Based on information from the last meeting, this will have rules for special events as well as others that use “porta-pottys”)
- A public hearing will be held for Rules and Regulations of Body Art for Jasper County Board of Health. (Based on information from the last meeting, this will regulate tattoo parlors and tattoo artists.)
- A public hearing will be held for Health Department Fee Schedule.
- A public hearing will be held for a fine schedule for Magistrate Court. (This will set fees for the noise ordinance and all other cases taken to Magistrate Court.)
Copies are available IF you have time to take off work and drive to the courthouse. They are NOT available online. It is easy to post a PDF, but does not seem to be a priority for the county staff.
The public is invited to attend and those with special needs related to handicapped accessibility, should contact the Planning and Zoning office at 706-468-4905. Copies of the portable sanitation contractors rules and rules and body art regulations topics will be available at the Jasper County Planning and Zoning Office in the basement of the courthouse (Suite 17) and also at the Jasper County Health Department, located at 336 East Greene Street Monticello, Ga 31064

Citizens, be informed and stay informed! Only by being informed, can the citizens understand what is being done and talked about, and then press our officials to make good decisions for everyone in Jasper County. That is our goal with the Taxdogs blog.
