Resolution To Create a Facilities Authority

The Resolution may be downloaded from HERE for you to read.

Pay attention to Paragraph (b) that allows the Board of Commissioners to appoint themselves as members of the Facilities Authority Board allowing them to create bonds and debt as Board Members of the Facilities Authority and Approve them as members of the Board of Commissioners with no oversight from any other board and without consulting the Citizens of Rockdale County.

If you do not approve of this Resolution, please sign below and your disapproval will be sent to the Rockdale Delegation.


As a citizen of Rockdale County, I am very concerned that our Board of Commissioners is requesting the State Legislature to establish a Facilities Authority Board.

This Board would only consist of 3 members of which 2-member world constitute a quorum.  This Board with 2-members will have the ability to issue bonds and create unlimited debt without the citizens of Rockdale County having any say in the matter.  

Section (b) of this Resolution allows the Commissioners to appoint themselves as Board Members of the Facilities Authority Board that has the authority to create bonds.  This allows the Facilities Authority to create bonds and have them approved by the same people that created them

This Resolution was never discussed with the Voters of Rockdale County before being presented to our Legislative Delegation and at this time as Taxpayer and Voter in Rockdale County I request that you vote NO if you are requested to consider this matter.

HB 741 Add Board Members
Legislative Bill HB 741
I am writing to urge you to consider supporting HB 741 the legislative effort to increase the number of board members for the Rockdale County Board of Commissioners from three to five. As a resident of the county, I believe that expanding the board will provide several benefits that will help us manage our county more effectively.
Firstly, having more members on the board will bring diverse perspectives and expertise to the table. With a larger board, we can tap into a wider range of experiences, backgrounds, and skills, which will help us make better decisions and tackle challenges more efficiently.
Secondly, a larger board can help to distribute the workload more evenly. With only three members, each person has to take on a significant amount of responsibility, which can lead to burnout and a lack of productivity. By adding two more members, we can reduce the burden on each individual and ensure that everyone has the time and energy to devote to their duties.
Lastly, expanding the board can help to increase engagement and participation among residents. With more spots available on the board, more people will have the opportunity to get involved in our county government at a leadership level. This can lead to a greater sense of ownership and investment in our county, and ultimately, help us manage our county more effectively.
In conclusion, I strongly encourage you to support  HB 741  legislation increasing the number of board members from three to five. This change will bring a wealth of benefits to our county, and help us to  make Rockdale a much better place to live for its residents. Thank you for your consideration.
