City-county cooperation is good

I had the opportunity to represent Peachtree City along with Councilman Eric Imker in a meeting with the county government and the cities. I have developed a solid working relationship with the county and I can truly say the spirit of cooperation is excellent.

Chairman Steve Brown and the other commissioners are doing their best to reach out to the cities and find ways to build better working relationships so we can all succeed. I have been able to share some ideas on economic development and transportation improvements with the county.

Chairman Brown shared with us that Peachtree City’s share of the Core Infrastructure SPLOST proceeds will increase in the neighborhood of $1.7 million.

For those keeping track, this is an increase of $1.2 million over simply defaulting to the population distribution as mandated by law.

This incredible display of cooperation shows the value of having a good working relationship between local government officials. I am grateful for the trust and the rapport with the county government that results from open communication.

We can accomplish far more together than we can alone. This new level of cooperation proves that fact.
