I attended the January 20, 2022 Camden County Commission meeting at 10:00 a.m.
Commissioners Hasty and Gohagan were present.
I was the only person in the audience who wasn’t a Camden County employee.
The meeting started off with a Public Comment section. I told them I didn’t have anything to say and we moved on.
The first agenda item was for the Recorder Bid Opening. There was just one bid and the Recorder opened it at the meeting. The bid was for $110,000 and this was lower than the $145,000 he had previously been quoted by the vendor. It sounded like this was for a software system for the Recorder’s Office. The Recorder wanted to take some time to review the bid and confirm that this bid covered all the requirements. The Commission voted unanimously to table this bid.
The second agenda item was for Tax Abatements. There were quite a few tax abatements and they were all approved unanimously. The Commission also had to ratify the tax abatements they approved online. These abatements were all ratified.
The third agenda item was for a Wastewater Grant. A representative from the Sewer Board stated they wanted to apply for a DNR engineering grant for the Camelot Sewer District. The Commission had previously earmarked federal ARPA money for the Camelot Sewer District, but if this DNR grant is approved, DNR will pay for the engineering portion of the project. The Commission approved this grant application unanimously and started signing paperwork.
And that was that.
