The University of Georgia's Carl Vinson Institute of Government has offered to facilitate four citizen landfill committee meetings for $12,500.
The sum would cover all project expenses, including travel, for two individuals to facilitate the meetings. Those experts are Langford D. Holbrook and attorney Raye Rawls.
According to the proposal, Holbrook has "more than 20 years experience working with communities in planning, administration and project management." His clients include the City of Perry, City of Americus and Sumter County, City of Conyers, Gordan County, City of Suwanee, Athens Downtown Development Authority and the Jekyll Island Authority.
Rawls "works in community leadership development with a specialty in conflict resolution." She has worked for the Atlanta Regional Commission, the Atlanta Public School System, UGA's Archway Project and the 10th Judicial District's Alternative Dispute Resolution Program.
The proposal includes a scope of work, outline for each meeting and deadline of July 31, 2015.
The Board of Commissioners will likely vote on the proposal at the next meeting.
