Jones County Commission Board members received some unexpected good news at an abbreviated called meeting last week.

The April 22 called meeting began with the awarding of a bid for materials for a waterline for Joycliff Circle, which was postponed from the April 16 meeting. The county received four bids, and Water Superintendent Freddie Wiggins recommended acceptance of the bid from Ferguson Waterworks.

Wiggins said the $28,511.73 was not only the lowest bid but he has also worked with the company before. The board members voted unanimously to accept the bid.

“We’ll get the materials ordered and start work,” he said.

The superintendent said he was anxious for the project to get under way to make sure the waterline is replaced before the road is resurfaced as part of a Georgia Department of Transportation project.
