Gilchrist County Commission Meeting

Monday APRIL 21 and Tuesday APRIL 22 @ 6 PM
location: Trenton High School Auditorium, 1013 North Main Street

Gilchrist County Commission Meeting dealing with only one agenda item...Blue Springs Properties request for a special exception permit to build a bottling facility on County Road 340.... will be begin at 6 pm on Monday April 21. It will go until @ 10 pm. At that time if the meeting is not finished they will reconvene on Tuesday April 22 at 6 pm. The location is the Trenton High School Auditorium which seats 500. They are expecting a record turn out and are using one facility to accommodate all the people in a single venue. The last Planning and Zoning meeting was held in 3 rooms with audio and visual feed into the 2 secondary rooms.

The lawyer for Gilchrist County Commission, John McPherson, circulated a memorandum on how the Commissioners need to deal with the press, citizens and applicant. What I understand of this important document is that the citizens need to keep all their concerns to the elected officials on paper or e-mail as proof of direct contact. Please refrain from having direct verbal conversation with the commissioners about this subject until the quasi-judicial decision on April 21-22. That night you are entitled (2 minutes) to express your concerns. It is important that we honor this request so that Blue Springs Properties does not have grounds for legal recourse.
