August 14, 20l9 County may require , internet in subdiVisions By Richard Dumas iorsylh©mymcmel Monroe County Com- missioners Tuesday, Aug. 6 instructed the county’s new chief building inspector Daniel Brown to require developers of new subdivi— sions in the county to lay internet conduit. District 4 commissioner George Emami said a citi- zen at last month’s commis— sioners’ internet forum sug- gested the county require developers to lay internet conduit. Emami, who said Bibb County already has such a requirement in its ordinance for any devel- oper who digs a trench, suggested the mandate ap- ply to subdivisions of six or more lots termed “major” under Monroe County’s subdivision ordinance. District 1 commissioner Larry Evans said he thinks Emami’s suggestion is a good one and added he also wants the county to require that all subdivision utility lines be constructed underground. Commis- sion chairman Greg Tapley then proposed instructing Brown and county manager Jim Hedges to come up with an updated policy of subdivision requirements and bring it back to com- missioners for approval.

No one opposed the Gassetts’ request, and the Monroe County Planning & Zoning board unani— mously approved the mea- sure at a July 29 meeting.

COOLER 8: TUMBLERS OUR HOMETOWN HOSPITAL ‘My son’s alive because of Monroe County Hospital’ — Tabitha Phillips of High Falls y son Levi Colvin was being treated for strep throat, but was still very sick and having breathing problems. We took him to another area hospital and their doctor wouldn’t even see him. He just told us to keep taking the medicine. Finally, we took him to Monroe County Hospital. The doctor there saved Levi’s life. He ran some tests and discovered to our horror that Levi had non-Hodgkins lymphoma, including a tumor from his neck to his stomach. While we were distressed, we were also glad to know what was wrong and to begin treatments that continue to this day. That doctor was wonderful, and saved Levi’s, life. He’s doing pretty good and is able to attend school. We’re very thankful for I ' Monroe County Hospital, and would urge anyone else to go there. They really do care.
