Joint City-County Meeting This Morning

Toccoa City Commissioners and Stephens County Commissioners are scheduled to get together for a joint city-county meeting this morning.

That meeting is scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m. at Toccoa City Hall.

Among the items on the agenda is discussion of inmate housing agreement.

At their meeting earlier this month while discussing an issue related to the probation department agreement between Toccoa and Stephens County, Stephens County Commissioners inquired as to why the city of Toccoa was not paying to house its inmates at the county jail as some other communities do in other counties.

Also on the agenda is discussion of city-county consolidation of services.

Earlier this year, local resident Roger Herrick appeared separately before Toccoa City and Stephens County Commissioners, asking them to consider consolidation.
