Welcome to the Pike County Times.com Board of Commissioners Page.

This is my way of providing accountability in County Government. Shedding light on our county government is very important. Public scrutiny will encourage questions from the public as to why our representatives act on our behalf. Public scrutiny will also encourage a dialogue between our county government and its citizens.

I believe that citizens have every right to provide our opinions to our representatives, and I believe that we are obligated to bring information to our representatives so they can make an educated decision on our behalf. I also believe that citizens have an obligation to ask questions of our government representatives in order to ensure that our representatives are acting in our best interest.

Citizens and county government should work hand in hand to keep Pike County a great place to live.

For more information on these meetings or to look at copies of minutes and post agendas from the Board of Commissioners' website, click here and click on the archives or the NovusAgendalink. There are minutes from every county board and authority that spends Pike County funding included with the minutes for meetings as well. I like open government! Thank you for the Commission Office for providing this information with easy access for citizens.

Tax Assessment Info for Pike County Residents

ZEBULON - Chief Appraiser Greg Hobbs spoke before commissioners in the April 28, 2020 meeting about the tax assessment that was coming for property owners in Pike County. Scroll down to his notes and then click on the letter that Appraiser Hobbs sent to Pike County Times at my request after that meeting. Tax Commissioner Donna Chapman spoke at the budget meeting tonight and advised that the county is looking at a 12.243 rollback, but the impact of this year's budget is going to be on the homeowner. There hasn’t been a reevaluation in 10 to 15 years when it’s supposed to be done every 3-5 years. Commercial will be done next year, but this year the homeowners will be hurting this year. The deadline for appeals in July 17.

Chief Appraiser Greg Hobbs walked through the process tonight. For people who say overnight my home value went up $100,000, he said that some of them did because they needed to. He asked residents to look at the value and see if that is correct. If there is a problem with the value, let them know. And the value came from surrounding properties in your neighborhood. The tax number hasn’t been set up for the county yet. He asked that residents come to the office and sit down to discuss things if they have questions. The number to the office is 770-567-2002.

If Grady chooses to sever the contract, it had to be done today because there is a 60 day clause that says, "Either party may terminate this Agreement by notifying the other party in writing not less than sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term." I've already put in an open records request for this information, and my breaking news subscribers will know it first. Keep an eye out here though because I'll likely upload it tomorrow night.]

My Thoughts on H.B. 734: Entreaty for Common Sense
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - HB 734 is entitled the "Ethics in Journalism Act" and is supposed to create journalism ethics board that will govern media entities throughout the state of Georgia. This letter basically walks through my reasons that the legislation is bad and encourages any who are already signed onto this legislation to walk away from it. This legislation is in clear violation of not one but two constitutions, and it deserves a very loud rebuke in the public square. Click here for more.
