New Members To Be Appointed To Land Committee

The make-up of Putnam County's Land and Facilities Committee is about to change. That committee is the one which is responsible for reviewing the building needs of county government and helping to find suitable pieces of property for those needs. They were among the first to review the site that is today the location of the county ambulance service. But the committee has also struggled in recent months, trying to come up with a suitable site for a jail annex that would help the county deal with overcrowding. Now, three long time members of the committee will be rotating off to allow for the appointment of three new members. The county commission Monday night will consider the appointments of David Randolph, Scott McCanless and Ron Chaffin.
