Georgia County Government - Summer 2016 - 16

SPECIAL FOCUS: COUNTIES SHINE Georgia Counties Get Results in ACCG's Policy Areas By Laura A. Hernandez EACH SPRING, the process of developing ACCG's legislative policies kicks off with the ACCG president's appointment of chairpersons to lead the organization's seven standing policy committees. The topics covered by these committees-which include Economic Development and Transportation, General County Government, Health and Human Services, Public Safety and the Courts, Natural Resources and the Environment, Revenue and Finance and Federal issues- set the organization's legislative agenda and address the core issues integral to the continued success of Georgia's counties. As ACCG advocates for legislative progress at the state and federal level, each of Georgia's counties pursue initiatives that benefit citizens, the community and the region at large. These projects are defined by the same categories that guide ACCG's policy work on behalf of counties, and standout initiatives- like those in Forsyth, Lowndes, Newton, Henry, Grady, Macon-Bibb and Chatham counties-are well-deserving of recognition. Forsyth County: Economic Development and Transportation Metro Atlanta's Forsyth County is consistently ranked among the fastest growing counties in the nation, and recent U.S. Census Forsyth County Commissioners Brian Tam, Todd Levent, Cindy Jones Mills and R.J. (Pete) Amos stand next to a sign thanking Forsyth County voters during the groundbreaking ceremony for the much-anticipated State Route 400 road widening project.
