ALBANY, Ga. -- Lee County Commissioners are holding their annual strategic planning session at 10:50 a.m.today at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront hotel.
Commission Chairman Rick Muggridge said commissioners and a couple of staff members left a day early to attend the planning retreat before the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia begins its annual three-day run.
Muggridge said all five commissioners planned to attend the session in addition to Interim County Manager Lynn Taylor, County Clerk Christi Dockery and Finance Director Heather Kittrell.
Because all five commissioners will be attending the session, it's considered an official meeting.
The planning session will be conducted in the Johnson Conference Room on the second floor of the hotel.
Muggridge said no formal action is anticipated. He said the session will be facilitated by Pat Merritt of the Georgia EMC and Dave Wills, government relations manager for the ACCG.
Items on the tentative agenda to be discussed, Muggridge said, include the process of hiring a new county manager and potential changes in fire and EMS services.
Leesburg City Council members held a planning retreat this past Saturday at Coney Lake Lodge in Lee County. Partly at a result of that meeting, the city council is considering hiring a city manager.
