Topics such as package liquor sales in Jones County and the reason the Jones County Development Authority has asked for a percentage of the county’s property taxes will be discussed at Saturday’s quarterly meeting of People Looking Ahead Now (PLAN).

Breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, July 20, at Shooters Grill, and the meeting will begin no later than 9. The cost of breakfast is $7.

PLAN Chairman Ted Stone said Susan Taylor is on the program to talk about the state Rails to Trails program and cycling.

State, city and county elected officials will present updates, and PLAN committees and local agencies will also have the opportunity to share their progress.

Jones County PLAN was formed by a steering committee of community leaders in 1997 and was an offshoot of the leadership program Forward 2000. Among its accomplishments, PLAN was instrumental in the creation of Jones County’s Operation Early Intervention program, Jones County Family Connection, the reactivation of the Development Authority of Jones County and the Gray Downtown Development Authority, and the creation of Jones County History and Heritage.
