  • Rockdale County Wellness Program managed by Rockdale County’s Talent Management received a national award from Cigna Healthcare for the second time

During the Unfinished Business session, there was a vote on the zoning ordinances, (2019-552 & 2019-553) that focused on short-term rentals in the county.  This topic received much discussion in the community.  After an in-depth exchange on the pros and cons of short-term rentals between the Board of Commissioners, the ordinances were denied. 

Also, there were amendments to the 2020 budget including the approval of the following:

  • Two voting locations for early voting and the November 2020 elections
  • The hiring of a program manager for the mental health unit located at the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Department
  • Salary adjustments for directors based on the recommendations from the job market study analysis
