  1. Big Thanks to Comm McKnight for bringing up soooo many needed city items that have been shelved for too long. Be proud of our community by proper maintenance…..it is a city government responsibility.

  2. At least one commissioner is thinking about more than what snacks will be served at the next meeting. Either sell the fire truck or display it inside the Augusta Museum, where the owners (us) can look at and it won’t be vandalized.

  3. Cutting of the grass is such a complicated and divisive issue that I believe we should hire an expert in the field to offer guidance on further action. Geez, just cut the darn grass ( and pick-up the trash first )

  4. Regarding maintaining the Cemeteries: just take a look at the Confederate Section at Magnolia Cemetery. It is beautiful and groomed frequently by the local Sons of Confederate Veterans. Hereditatem non Odite
    (Heritage—not Hatred).

  5. Our mayor-elect has what appears to be a satisfactory idea on how to handle the grass cutting and associated work and that is to have a separate city agency whose sole job is that. Makes sense to me.

  6. A friend and local business owner recently remarked on Augusta’s lack of charm. “When out-of-towners visit Augusta, the only WOW! factor that they mention is the Augusta National. Think about it! Even our riverfront is an eyesore. Most of the county looks sad and dreary.” I agree!

  7. I have no idea why the county has staff to upkeep properties, they pay someone to mow the grass at the water works and I’m sure anything else that’s maintained. Whomever is over that department needs to get themselves behind a lawnmower immediately, or be terminated immediately. Nothing is addressed without a complaint. This is from a group of employees that the former hack of a city administrator gave unnecessary raises to do nothing. Better idea, drag the former administrator back and make him mow the grass and trim the bushes.
