Macon-Bibb Says Farewell to Commissioners | News
Macon and Bibb County leaders are calling it "the end of an era" as they say goodbye to the outgoing county commissioners.
The Bibb County Board of Commissioners met with family, friends, and the public during a reception at Terminal Station Thursday evening.
County Commission Chairman, Sam Hart, says the reception also served as a way to thank the public for their efforts in passing the SPLOST and voting to consolidate the government.
Hart says the new government will move Bibb County into the 21st century, but the change is bittersweet.
"I think it's a step forward and a step toward efficiency, but it's still tough to see what we've considered check and balance for a number of years go out of existence," said Hart.
The new consolidated government will take effect January 1st.
