It was also mentioned that state law has been passed regarding food trucks. This will have to be reviewed before the upcoming January 10 meeting. [Note from the Editor: It sounds like the Chief of Police wanted to make his Assistant Chief salaried instead of hourly. Council Member Yarbrough explained his no vote after the meeting to Pike County Times by saying that the Chief was put in place to be the head of the Police Department, and they "can't micromanage the police."]

BOC Issues Moratorium on Subdivisions

ZEBULON - On Wednesday, the Pike County Board of Commissioners imposed a 90-day moratorium on all new major and minor subdivisions and any building permits related thereto in a 5-0 decision. Pike County Times will have more on this when the write up on the meeting is completed.

[Note from the Editor: I asked for a clarification to be sure that I have things down correctly. Planning and Development Director Jeremy Gilbert said this: “The moratorium is for new submittals of minor and major subdivision plats and the building permits for new subdivision plats that have not already been approved. If a plat has already been approved then a building permit can still be issued. However, if a plat is in the process now they can continue with the approval process but would not be able to pull building permits until the moratorium is lifted. We are still accepting rezoning, special exception and variance applications as normal. Any existing residential rezoning application that we have will still be heard for the zoning but they will not be able to submit the preliminary or final plat until after the moratorium ends. Currently the moratorium is set for 90 days or until the impact fees are evaluated and any changes are approved by the BOC.”]

Click here for more.

UPDATED 7.23.22: Rumors are rampant that a halfway house for a substance abuse treatment is coming to Pike County based on the advertisement for the annexation of the VA clinic from Pike County into the City of Zebulon. Pike County Times spoke to the City of Zebulon and was advised that because the VA Clinic will be offering substance abuse treatment at the facility, there is specific language from OCGA 36-66-4(f) that is required to be in the public hearing announcement as follows: "...both the posted notice and the published notice shall include a prominent statement that the proposed zoning decision relates to or will allow the location of a halfway house, drug rehabilitation cetner, or other facility for treatment of drug dependency..." The City of Zebulon advised as follows: "The VA facility is not considered to be a halfway house as it does not have the capacity to house patients overnight for any type of treatment."

Pike County Times Reauthorizes 2017 Freedom
of Information Act (FOIA) Request
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - Pike County Times became acquainted with Clayton Kuhles from MIA Recoveries, Inc. because of his work to bring home the airmen from the "Hot as Hell" crash that brought WWII Bombardier 1st Lt. Robert "Eugene" Oxford home to Concord in 2017. Kuhles discovered the crash site in 2006 in a remote part of India and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) brought home remains from 1st Lt. Oxford. You can read more about his long journey home to Concord in 2017 by clicking here.

Pike County Times reported that the DPAA awarded a high bidder with a contract for Northeastern India Recovery Work in 2017. The solicitation was specifically to follow up on recovery of remains of WWII service members from sites in Northeast India where Kuhles had a lot of experience in recovery and a bid that was $428,000 less than the company who was awarded the contract. Kuhles placed a complaint with the Naval Inspector General, and Pike County Times placed a FOIA for information pertaining to this contract.

Pike County Times received an emailed letter from the Department of Defense FOIA Division advising that it regretted the delay in completing the request and asking if Pike County Times would still like to receive the information that has been requested along with its current caseload of 3,486 requests on August 28, 2020. (This request was one of 2,961 open requests on July 9, 2019.) The letter read as follows: "...we understand that due to the passage of time and changing needs of requesters, it is possible that you no longer have an interest in the documents you requested. Therefore, we ask that you review your enclosed request and confirm your continued interest in the requested information September 30, 2020." Pike County Times sent a letter authorizing the continuation of this FOIA by email today. When the information is finally received, Pike County Times will review and update the article.

Griffin Police Department and the Media - PART I
By Editor Becky Watts

GRIFFIN - Pike County Times has covered news for Griffin and Spalding County when time allowed over the past several years. This investigation began because the Griffin Police Department (PD) began issuing press releases only on Facebook and not to the press at the end of January of 2019. The policy has since changed, then changed back, and then changed again, but lately Griffin PD has begun issuing regular press releases to the press again. In the course of this discussion over whether something can be called a “press release” if it is not issued and sent to the press, Pike County Times decided to investigate whether there was a difference in how the local and Atlanta media were treated as well as seeing if any news media were singled out for special treatment. This is the first part of a four part series of articles. Click here for more.

UPDATE 12.1.21: Nothing has changed. Persecution of one reporter continues by the Griffin Police Department, and the City of Griffin continues to allow it.
