The Cherokee County Commission met on Monday, March 11 at 9 a.m. for the regularly scheduled planning session.

During this planning session Corey Chambers, county engineer, introduced David Savage of Pioneer Green Energy and Evan Morgan of Constantine Engineering who discussed with the commissioners the possibility of doing ecological and artifact studies along the right of way for the windmill project.

Also with them was Bill Jones, a local resident who serves the project as a consultant. The commission will revisit this at a subsequent meeting as more information becomes available.

Eric Peck also met with the Commissioners to discuss the construction of a website for the county; no action was taken on this matter.

Harley Laney, Cherokee County Detention Center administrator, addressed commissioners asking them to consider a new phone system for the jail.

According to Laney, the company they have phones with is no longer in business and they can no longer get repairs and things they may need in the future.

Thereasa Hulgan, executive director of Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce, presented a thank you card to each of the Commissioners for their support of a recent fishing tournament.

In the regular scheduled meeting Max Wynn, uncle of Probate Judge Kirk Day and a veteran, led the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag and Pastor John Mullaney from Centre First United Methodist Church gave the invocation.

The Commissioners appointed Commission Chairman/Probate Judge Kirk Day as their representative to the Coosa Valley Resource Conservation and Development Council.

Gary Johnson was hired as Highway Maintenance Technician I.

County Administrator Tim Burgess announced the Library and Assistant Library jobs are to be posted in the paper for the next three weeks.

In other business, the Commission:

· Donated $1,700, shared by the Commissioners, was donated to the Child Advocacy Center for plumbing repairs

· Provided $5,000 was approved for Centre Elementary School for security fencing project

· Declared a push mower and trench compactor as surplus property from the highway department

· Reappointed Tammi East to the Cherokee County Water and Sewer Authority for a term ending March 1, 2019

· Approved the mileage rate paid to persons traveling in privately own vehicle while on official business for the county at 56.5 cents per mile

The next regular meeting of the Cherokee County Commission will be Monday, March 25, 2013 at 5 p.m.
