Draft-Hart County Commission and School Board Redistricting


    The Hart County Board of Equalization will be starting appeals in September and will most likely run into October, 2023. When the Clerk of Superior Court Offices in the State were made to take on the responsibility of “Appeal Administrator”, I decided that I would attempt to hold a meeting with the Board of Equalization Members before we started the appeal hearing’s ( this meeting is not mandatory) I just felt that the meeting would be the same as a staff meeting. Elect a Chairperson and Vice Chairperson for the upcoming year and I also hand out a new Georgia Statute for the members to have at the hearings. That is basically the jest of the meeting. This year as in past years it is difficult to get everyone at a hearing.

    This year I finally got a date we all could meet then I had to cancel the meeting. I have Grand Jury starting and in an attempt to expedite the process I decided that I would have the members vote for Chairperson and Vice Chairperson by email. I have completed that process and received recommendations and a second from two members. I further asked and requested that if anyone objected to the recommendation to please email me, I have not received any emails of an objection. I have closed the meeting and advised the members that I would email them the statute and I would further have copies for them when they start the hearings. Meeting adjourned by emails to all members.

    If anyone would like to observe the chain of emails on the recommendations, I have them here in the Clerk of Superior Court office. Please feel free to stop by.

    The recommendation for Chairperson is:
    Ruth Roosenberg
    The recommendation for Vice Chairperson is:
    Kathryn Heriford.
    I felt that I should post this to the website and the bulletin boards at the courthouse to stay transparent with the tax payers in Hart County.

    If anyone has any questions or concerns please contact me at 1-706-376-7189 or

      Gateway III Sewer Improvement Project- Water Line Portion
      Hart County Industrial Building Authority
      Hart County, Georgia
      ARC GA-19326

      The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) has conducted a review of the above subject project in accordance with the State's Environmental Review Process (SERP) for Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) projects. The EPD has determined that this project is eligible for a categorical exclusion. Accordingly, the EPD is exempting the project from further substantive environmental review requirements under Georgia's SERP.
      The proposed project involves the instillation of 1,610 linear feet of 6" water lines.
      This project is eligible for a Categorical Exclusion because it meets the following specific criteria, outlined in the DWSRF SERP: Improvements to existing surface or ground water treatment plants, including improvements to enhance security, which do not add a significant change in treatment capacity. Furthermore:
      • The project will not require issuance of a new or modification of an existing ground water or surface water withdrawal permit;
      • The project is not known or expected to have a significant adverse effect on the quality of the human environment, either individually,
      cumulatively over time, or in conjunction with other Federal, State, local or private actions; • The project is not known or expected to directly or indirectly have a significant adverse effect on: or threatened species; or environmentally
      important natural resource areas, such as floodplains, wetlands, important farmlands or aquifer recharge areas; and cultural resource areas,
      such as archaeological and historic sites; habitats of endangered species; • The action is cost-effective and is not expected to cause significant public controversy.
      This determination shall become effective after thirty (30) days following its distribution by EPD and can be revoked if significant adverse information is made available. The documentation to support this decision is on file with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division and is available for public scrutiny upon request. A copy of the proposed project documentation is also available for review at Hart County Industrial Building Authority.
      All interested agencies, groups and persons supporting or disagreeing with this decision are invited to submit written comments, within thirty (30) days of the publish date ofthis notice to:
      Georgia Environmental Protection Division
      ATTN: John Towe, Environmental Engineer
      Drinking Water Program
      2 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, SE, Suite 1362 East
      Atlanta, Georgia 30334-9000
      After evaluating the comments received, EPD will make a final decision regarding approval of the project planning documents. No administrative action will be taken on the project for thirty (30) calendar days after publication of this Notice in a local newspaper that serves Hart County, Georgia.
