Partners for Smart Growth will be sponsoring an Open Community Meeting on the topic of consolidation of county services. Discussions held earlier in the
year, by both City & County governments, have put discussions of consolidated governments in Butts County on hold. However, opportunities for consolidation of services, as a means of increased
efficiencies remain unexplored. The purpose of this meeting is to learn more about consolidation of services.
Our guest speaker will be Robert Reichert, Mayor of the Macon Bibb Consolidated Government. Mayor Reichert will speak on both the process and the outcomes of
the consolidation of the City of Macon & Bibb County.
This community meeting will be held at the Jackson United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall on Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015. The program
will begin with a lunch served at 11:30 am, cost $10.00, followed by the presentation. Partners invite anyone interested to attend this meeting.
