Dooly prisoners to help Macon-Bibb Public Works |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
On the first day of the fiscal year for the newly consolidated Macon-Bibb, the commission will meet to discuss and vote on county business.
Commissioners plan to renew a $118,000 contract with the Department of Corrections.
That means three crews of Dooly State prisoners will help the public works department clean up right-of-ways, the landfill, and shrubbery.
The county will pay for vans and guards.
Commissioners will also vote on a compromise to open East Macon pool six days a week instead of every other day.
Originally, Commissioner Elaine Lucas proposed opening all county pools every day, but recreation director Doc Dougherty said the cost of chemicals and lifeguards would be too high.
