Sam Hart wins Macon Water chairman seat | Environment
Newly elected Macon Water Authority Chairman, Sam Hart is already planning for change.
Hart was up against David Cousino and Stephen Rickman and won by a large margin.
It may be a fresh position for the former commissioner, but he says he is ready to jump in and get started.
He says his first order of business is dealing with the infrastructure and spillage issues.
"We still have some infrastructure needs that have not been taken care of in the same way that we have with water. So what i'd like to do in terms of that mission is continue to work on the infrastructure so that the spillage and other things that you've heard and read about we can stop those and we can do a better job at communicating to the public where they are but more importantly we can repair the infrastructure in a timely fashion so we don't have as many as those," says Hart.
This is Hart's first elected position in the Macon-Bibb Government.
He was the last commissioner of Bibb County before the consolidation.
