It is now likely that Barrow County will hold a November referendum on whether to change from a "strong chairman" to a "county manager" form of government.
At a Wednesday morning press conference, Gov. Nathan Deal issued his official call of next week’s special legislative session on redistricting. His written proclamation names as one of the purposes of the summer session “enacting, revising, repealing or amending local laws which the General Assembly deems necessary to avoid unreasonable hardship or to avoid undue impairment of public functions if consideration and enactment thereof are postponed.”
Rep. Terry England said that includes such “time-sensitive” bills as Barrow’s, which requires legislative action prior to calling a voter referendum.
