Many in Appling County recall running the wood floor at the old Appling County Junior High School gymnasium. This facility has new life once again.
The Appling County Commissioners decided last year to fully renovate the old gymnasium, instead of building a new facility, using Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax Funding and local funding.
The best part about the update to this facility is that this gymnasium will be regulation-size, unlike the Baxley City Gym, and will allow the Appling County Recreation Department to now have the capability of hosting district and state events. The commissioners toured the gym to witness first-hand the work that is being conducted and the facility is very impressive. Renovations on the gymnasium should be complete in the coming months.
The commissioners also toured the Pineland Mental Health facility, Public Library, and Appling County Health Department as part of Facilities Tour Work Session meeting.
