A local committee to study Barrow County’s form of government could be operational within three weeks.
District 3 Commissioner Steve Worley said Monday that he would ask the Barrow County Board of Commissioners at its next meeting on April 12 to immediately appoint seven members. Those members then would meet within two weeks to fill the final two seats and to elect a committee chairman and secretary.
If the BOC takes action next week, Worley said he thinks the review process will get back on track and the committee will have enough time to conduct the public process and still meet the original Aug. 23 deadline for submitting written recommendations.
