Bainbridge Mayor Edward Reynolds talked Wednesday, April 23 about the format and goals of a meeting he has organized between Decatur County Commissioners and Bainbridge City Council members.

The meeting will be held at Memorial Hospital meeting room next Tuesday evening, April 29.

You can hear Mayor Reynolds’ remarks on what he hopes the meeting will accomplish below. Some key points are:

  • The meeting is open to the public and media; however, space in the meeting room is limited and there won’t be any opportunity for public comments.
  • The meeting is intended to be an informal discussion between elected officials on the two boards. No administrative staff will be present; Reynolds said there may be a mediator leading the discussion.
  • The Mayor said he hopes the meeting will clear the air between the two local governments and re-open lines of communication and cooperation.
  • From the mayor’s perspective, despite what some might think, the City of Bainbridge is not purposely trying to cause affront to county officials with some of its recent decisions such as moving city inmates or solid waste to other facilities not operated by the county.
