January 11--  Some road improvements are on the table for Toombs County in 2012. 

County Manager Doug Eaves told county commissioners Tuesday that bids will be let January 20th for resurfacing of nearly four miles of the New Normantown Road and two more miles of the Lyons-Center Road.

The commission reappointed Barry Dotson to the Workforce Investment Board and Troy Reddick, Donnie Mann and Kathy Milligan to the county Board of Elections.

It  also approved more than $340,000 to buy a new motor grader for the county road department and a wheel loader for the landfill.

The commission passed a resolution declaring February as Spay-Neuter Month but made no mention of what it's planning to do with stray animals caught in the county come February 1.  The City of Lyons has informed the county it will not accept animals from the county after January 31.
