  • The appointee will be appointed by the county and the cities. 
  • ADDITIONAL MEMBERS ARE GIVEN TO COUNTIES BASED ON POPULATION. Colquitt county gets one additional member.  Decatur County gets one additional member.  Dougherty County gets two additional members.  Lee County gets one additional member.  Thomas County gets one additional member.  If you do not see your county listed, you DO NOT NEED TO MAKE A ADDITIONAL COUNCIL APPOINTMENT.

 

  • The appointee must live in that county.

 

  • The appointee must be a non-public (non-elected) official. 

 

For your convenience I have listed your current appointees on our council under your county listed in the tab to the left. 

 

What do you do first?

 

First you decide if you are going to put the appointments on your December agenda or January agenda.

 

What do you do next?

 

Next you fill the form out on the main page of this section and let me know which city council meeting agenda the appointments will be on.

 

What do you do next? 

 

You ask your county chairman/ mayors if they wish to re-appoint the current appointee for this next year. 

 

What do you do next?

 

If you want to keep your current appointee  you need to call them to see if they still want to be considered to be on our council for next year.  If they say yes then it is easy, you simply bring it up to your commissioners/council members during your meeting and if you must find someone to fill the empty spot and bring that appointee up in your commission/council meeting.

 

What is last?

 

Last you will put your successful appointee's name, mailing address, phone number and email in an appointment letter, on the county/city letterhead and have your commissioner/mayor  sign it.  I need a letter from the county and each city in that county.  Then you will fax it to 229-522-3558 or scan and email it to hwhite@swgrc.org     Then you email the original to The Southwest Georgia Regional Commission, P.O. Box 346, Camilla, Georgia 31730.

 

You are done! 

 

I NEED THESE NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY JANUARY 31st!
