Augusta, GA - Citizens affected by the flooding rain in recent days, and for many years, are demanding some resolution from city authorities. Meanwhile Mayor Deke Copenhaver and commissioner Matt Aitken agree in looking forward and urge the community to "stop pointing finger" to every problem or move the government does. Both said that Augusta is a "easy sale" with much to offer.
A meeting will be held Saturday with residents to talk about rain catcher, perhaps, since there is no tax money to deal with, except for pet projects such as the TEE Center or the Parking Deck or the coveted new baseball stadium for downtown.
The Rev. Larry Fryer and District 1 Commissioner Matt Aitken will meet with residents Saturday Augusta 18 to discuss flooding issues in light of the recent record rainfalls. The East Augusta community meeting will take place at 11:45 a.m. Saturday at Hudson Memorial CME Church, 2 Taylor St.
The Augusta Richmond County will meet August, Tuesday 21, to discuss Aitken's resolution regarding the Georgia Regents University (GRU) name of the consolidated new university (ASU/GHSU). No issues that affect every day taxpayers lives are in the Commission agenda, such as rain flood and other topics.
