June 19-- The Emergency Management job in Montgomery County is being transferred from the County Commission's office to the county sheriff.
County manager Brandon Braddy says the Commission and Sheriff Ladson O'Connor reached agreement to transfer the position at a called meeting Tuesday.
The EMA manager's office will be located in the courthouse where the manager will also be in charge of courthouse security as well as county code enforcement.
In other actions, the Commission okayed an agreement with Treutlen County allowing Tarrytown firemen to be called first in case of fires in the vicinity of the Treutlen-Montgomery county line. Treutlen County will pay $150 a month for the service which is expected to lower fire insurance rates for residents in the area.
The Commission appointed Geraldine Mead and Francis Timon to the Heart of Georgia Area Aging Committee.
It also approved a $220,000 lease-purchase of a John Deere motor grader from Flynt Equipment Company in Macon.
