A Quick Local News Check-in From MB: Truck Stop Denied; New Fire Station Approved; Latest on Madam Coroner

 Howdy, friends, and we sure hope it's dandy out there. 

Well, the Newton BOC had their regular meeting tonight (actually, as I type this, they're still meeting) & we've got some pretty big news.




First off, the proposed truck stop at Hwy 11 & I-20 was denied by the home county's governing authority in a vote count that surprised some: 5-0. 

In equally important news, the bond for the proposed new fire station that would serve both districts 1 & 5 in a much-needed increase of fire coverage to put this region on par w/ the rest of the county (and to give property owners such much-needed financial relief in regards to the homeowner's insurance), passed both the facilities board & the Newton BOC.

Finally, Madam Coroner 

Per an inside, direct source, Madam Coroner has allegedly reached out to the county about them providing & paying for legal counsel for her as it relates to the county's ongoing effort to remove her from her position of Coroner. Yes, you read that right: purportedly Madam Coroner wants the county to pay for her defense against the county. 

As the world turns, Newton Co, GA, USA
