FULTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS APPROVE RAIN GARDEN

 

The Fulton County Commissioners learned a bit about the environment, during their session on Tuesday.   Pete Carr from the Fulton Soil and Water Conservation office detailed a plan for creation of a rain garden at the Robert Fulton Building adjacent to the fairgrounds.   This project would utilize rainwater coming from the roof of the building and the parking lot, to irrigate a garden behind the facility.  It would use plants native to the area, in a bowl-shaped configuration.   Commissioners approved the installation of the rain garden with a resolution.

            The Fulton County board talked about ways to haul leachate from the former landfill site.  The latest option is to install a small pump, to move the liquid runoff from the lagoons, into tanker trucks.   More cost proposals are being gathered before a decision is made.

            And the Fulton County Commissioners went into executive session to discuss personnel; but no action was taken.
