Back to the good ole days

County Commissioner Sammy Hall proposed a plan for improving the aesthetic quality of Baldwin County in a planning work session Wednesday.
Hall said he would like to find a way to coordinate state prisoner roadside clean up crews with county mowing crews to keep the abundance of roadside litter from getting mowed to pieces and strewn across the county right-of-way.
If increasing the number of prisoner work hours with the state is nonnegotiable, Hall said he knows of 350 possible candidates who are moving into a new Baldwin County jail in early March.
Hall said he wouldn't mind if he heard a little jingle when they walk.
Milledgeville-Baldwin County Development Authority Director Angie Gheesling, who recently spear-headed efforts to make Milledgeville-Baldwin County an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, warned commissioners that Baldwin County's historic reliance on roadside prison details is probably adding to the community's litter problem and not cleaning it.
