The Clayton County Board of Commissioners will hear an update tonight from Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Area Manager Rubin McCullers.

The BOC will hold a pre-agenda meeting at 5:30 p.m., followed by the regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. The presentation is scheduled for the top of the 6:30 p.m. meeting.

Citizen activists have been pressing for the county and other entities to speed up the process of adding sidewalks to Tara Boulevard. They are expected to speak during the public comment period near the end of the meeting.

The BOC is set to approve the South Clayton Recreation Center gymnasium for a risk limiting audit related to the November 8 election. That audit will take place from Thursday, November 17 through Tuesday, November 22, 2022 (including that weekend).

The BOC also will consider accepting the $9 million in reallocated Emergency Rental Assistance Grant 2 (ERAP) funds, which has been the source of much political contention on the board as commissioners decide which nonprofit groups get to hand out the money.

Some other agenda items include:

  • the county’s quarterly financial update for the period ending September 30, 202 during the 5:30 p.m. pre-agenda meeting;
  • a new position at Parks and Recreation
  • reclassification of a dozen accounting technicians in Finance (total savings: $0.33)
  • Phase Two of Juvenile Court restructuring
  • compensation adjustment for the Clerk of Commission
  • requests from Fire and Emergency Services to enter an agreement with Advantage Students, to apply for funds from the Georgia Emergency Management Agency’s 2022 Hazard Mitigation Grant program, and to enter into an Accredited Agency Letter of Agreement with the Commission on Fire Accreditation International
