Consolidation continues? Zoning Boards to merge


zoning map

Well, the citizens decided against consolidating Hawkinsville and Pulaski County governments.    However, that is not stopping the respective governments from continuing to work together to consolidate services whenever it makes sense.   We are now working with County Commissioner M.A. “Butch” Hall to consolidate the zoning ordinances and zoning boards of Hawkinsville and Pulaski County.

We will utilize ONE set of zoning ordinances, ONE county wide zoning map, and ONE zoning board to hear zoning requests.    This move will not only save a little money (we pay our zoning board members AND the county pays their zoning board members), but it will also make things more consistent and easier for our citizens.    A citizen can get the maps, forms, ordinances, etc from EITHER government.

We will continue to look for ways to make our respective governments more responsive, better fiscal stewards, and better listeners to our citizens.  If you have any input on this or any issue, please respond below.  I look forward to your thoughts….
