Commissioners Table Appointment

The Rabun County Commission postpones appointing a member to the Clayton Rabun County Water and Sewer Authority at their meeting last week.

Commission Chairman Butch Darnell is one of the current members of the Water and Sewer Authority, and his term is up.

When discussing the possibility of re-appointing Darnell or choosing a new member, Commissioner Tom Garrison questioned whether or not there were any females currently on the authority.

“In our last appointment on the Board of Recreation, there was much discussion about females on the board,” said Garrison. “I think that since there’s currently only males on the water and sewer authority, has there been any thought by the commissioners about a female that might want to sit on that board?.”

After more discussion, including talk about what decision would make a consolidation effort easiest, the commission tabled their decision.
