SPEAKING OF DRONES … That reminds me of Augusta Commission members. Not that they’re spying on anybody. They’re just boring them to death, droning on and on.
For example, the subject of rotating meeting times for committee meetings was back on the agenda last week for about the fifth time. Commissioner Bill Lockett has been pushing for the rotation because the committee he heads is scheduled last, so he often doesn’t have a quorum.
Several commissioners weighed in on the matter, pro and con, with more words than necessary to get the point across.
Mayor Pro Tem Corey Johnson said they just needed to think about the number of items they put on the agenda.
“We’re just having too much discussion up here,” he said. “As a unit, we need to be more cognizant and be more considerate of the people here waiting for us to get to their item.”
