I attended the May 26, 2022 Camden County Commission meeting at 10:00 a.m.
All commissioners were present.
I was the only non-county employee in the audience.
The first agenda item was for Wastewater Bids.
There was one bid on two quotes for hardware and software upgrades for the Camelot Sewer District. The amounts were $14,400 and $17,689 respectively. Their current system is outdated and the district plans to use ARPA money to pay for it. Sounded like the vendor name was Lumix?
This item was approved unanimously.
The second agenda item was Sheriff Bid Acceptance.
The Sheriff’s Office representative recommended the Commission accept two bids for $5,300 and $2,500. These bids are to build pole barns out at the Sheriff’s range.
The Commission approved these bids unanimously.
And that was that.
Since this was a quick meeting, I wanted to take this opportunity to recap the past year for Among the Dogwoods. I started writing this blog on March 31, 2021 because I was frustrated by a lack of Commission transparency and the fact that there was no accurate record of what was really happening at the Commission meetings.
Over the past year, I’ve written 96 posts and 76 of those posts were about the Camden County Commission. Over 15,000 people have visited the site and it’s had almost 40,000 views. That’s not too bad considering the only methods I use to advertise the blog are Facebook and when I’m on Key Radio 89.3 FM. These numbers also don’t reflect all of the people who subscribe to Among the Dogwoods.
Which brings up my next point. The easiest way to get updates for new posts is to subscribe. It’s pretty simple and it’s perfect for people who don’t use Facebook to find out about updates to the blog. You just visit the Home Page at this link:
And at the bottom of the Home Page you’ll see this box.
Just enter your email address and press the blue Subscribe button. You’ll might get a confirmation email that you need to click and you should receive an email every time I post something new!
