County tightens MH rules

With an ordinance already in place prohibiting mobile homes 15 years or older from being moved into the county, the Early County Board of Commissioners took the first step Monday night to adopt an amendment to the county's mobile home ordinance which will prevent mobile homes 15 years and older from being moved within the county.

The commissioners appointed EC 2055 director Lisa Collins to the Development Authority Monday night and changed chairman Marty Howard's status to an ex officio member due to residency concerns.

The commissioners also reappointed four members to the planning commission and made the new terms staggered. John Hunter Jr. was reappointed with his term expiring in 2009. Fletcher Thompson, Amelia Easom and Robert Chester were also reappointed with their terms expiring in 2011.

In other business, the commissioners approved $3,347.63 in tax release applications and voted to approve a proposal for landfill work.

The commissioners also dis- cussed measures to protect Coheelee Creek Covered Bridge, road improvement projects and held a public hearing concerning the CDBG grant for the county's health department renovation project. Citizens attending for the hearing requested the county consider a grant project for a community center for youth.

The commissioners will set the millage rate Sept. 19 at 11 a.m. at the County Annex.
