Chairman Donald Black reported at the March 22 meeting that members of Jones County’s Georgia’s Initiative for Community Housing attended an alumni meeting last month. He said the topic of the meeting was heir property and the challenges faced by heirs of an estate when a will is not present.
Black suggested devoting the next housing meeting to the topic and sent out an e-mail last week announcing that a session on the importance of making a will, having clear titles, and looking at heir property, is scheduled April 9, 10:30 a.m. at the new Senior Citizens Complex.
Other items on the housing meeting agenda included the Haddock Community Enrichment Center that is planned after the renovation of the Idella Duncan Elementary School building. Black said the committee continues to work on its 501(c)3 status and has plans for fund-raisers to replace the building’s doors.
Groundbreaking for the county’s first community garden is planned for April 6 at the Haddock school in recognition of Keep America Beautiful National Day of Action to support the Great American Cleanup, all of which is sponsored by Keep Jones Beautiful.
