The Appling County Board of Commissioners held their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, June 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the Appling County Courthouse Annex. During the meeting the Commissioners approved a proposal from Golder Associates to do exploratory drilling on the dam located at Lake Tara. The work includes two 25-foot holes and two 50-foot holes to be drilled in order to evaluate the dam and find out if further work will be needed. The cost of the drilling will cost $35,000.00. A motion to approve the work was made by Commissioner Charlie Leggett with a second from Commissioner Ronnie Rentz. The motion was approved by all in attendance.
