April 11--  The Toombs County Commission is seeking bids for two county projects and an ambulance.

At its meeting Tuesday, the Commission rejected previous bids to resurface Lyons-Center Road from Highway 15 to the Vidalia-Cedar Crossing Road and voted to advertise for new bids.

It also is seeking bids for a new county convenience center planned for the New Normantown Road.

The county has received a state grant of $72,254 to buy a new ambulance and will put the purchase out for bids.

Commissioners also promised to review the county's mobile home ordinance after Chad Zorn objected to a requirement that a 4 X 6 foot porch must be built in front of both doors of a used mobile home he is occupying temporarily.  Zorn says the construction will cost him more than the $500 deposit he had to put down to comply with county regulations.  "Too much government," he told the commissioners.
