LUDOWICI — The Ludowici City Council voted to adopt a joint ordinance with Long County initiating a land development code and to approve a planning and zoning board at their November meeting.
Long County Commissioner Mike McGowan made a final presentation to the council regarding the new ordinance, which the county had approved earlier that same day.  The new code was officially adopted by the city and county, after being in the works for over two years.
The Planning and Zoning Board will be meeting every third Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Ludowici City Hall.
In addition to this action, the council gave Mayor Myrtice Warren the authority to sign any and all paperwork for variances from the Long County Code Enforcement Office.
In other business, the council:
• Voted to maintain the current millage rate of 10.0 for the 2008 tax year.
• Hired Kim Jones in the water department, at a weekly salary of $350.
• Voted to close city hall on Nov. 26-28 for Thanksgiving.
• Voted to install a light at the Old Well Pavilion and to buy Christmas lights for decorating the pavilion.
• Abandon a 20-foot lane adjacent to the railroad  tracks at the Marcus Smith Home.  The council also approved that the new owner of the property may buy that property for $1.
