July 26--  Toombs County officials got a satisfactory report on the county's 2010 audit at a called meeting Tuesday afternoon.

The audit showed the county's $6 million total fund balance is $1.5 million better than last year and, according to County Manager Doug Eaves, means the county will not have to borrow any money to cover expenses through the end of the year.  

The audit also reports the county's landfill and ambulance funds are in the black.

The commissioners also reviewed redistricting recommendations from the state reapportionment office based on the 2010 census.

They are preparing to advertise a new commission district map which will add 700 new citizens to Commissioner Roy Lee Williams District One and 200 new residents to Commissioner Louie Powell's Second District.  Commissioner Skeeter Toole's Third District will lose 900 in population while Commissioner Jeff McCormick's Fourth District will see no changes.

Once approved by the Commission, the new map will require approval by the U.S. Department of Justice and local enabling legislation by the Georgia general assembly.
