During its October meeting, the Long County Commission approved the following motions:
• Purchasing a new accounting software package for the county at a cost of $15,177.98.
• Appointed Nancy McKnew to the Long County Board of Elections, replacing Price Chapman.
• The county joining a wellness program, along with Liberty and Wayne counties. This benefit will be offered as a benefit to all Long County employees.
• Approved $3,000 to sponsor the Scott’s All-Stars basketball team, which is a nonprofit that works with fourth-graders. The organization stresses academics and athletics. To earn sponsorship, members must maintain a B average at school and complete a drug education and prevention program.

The commission failed to pass the following motions:
• Commissioner Wallace Shaw made a motion that Eaglewood Subdivision roads be maintained by the county. The motion failed because no one seconded it.
• Commissioner Andy Fuller made a motion to waive the $1,500 fine given to M. Corp Holdings Inc./Phoenix Properties East LLC for beginning construction without a building permit.  The motion was seconded by Commissioner Cliff DeLoach, but failed because commissioners David Richardson, Bobby Walker and Wallace Shaw voted against it.
