Dawson County department heads present their 2019 budget requests to Board of Commissioners

News

Human Resources Director Danielle Yarbrough presents her 2019 budget request to commissioners.

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – After months of preparation, Dawson County’s department heads presented their 2019 budget requests to the Board of Commissioners Monday. Commissioners scrutinized every line item in search of efficiencies that would save tax payer dollars.

Superior Court Judge Kathleen Gosselin, Tax Commissioner Nicole Stewart, Development Authority Director Brian Trapnell, Human Resource Director Danielle Yarbrough and Probate Court Judge Jennifer Burt were the first to present their requests.

Superior Court is asking for an increase of $16,297 in its 2019 budget to $516,971. Most of the increase is due to the addition of a fifth superior court judge to serve Dawson and Hall counties. Judge Clint Bearden was appointed to that post by Governor Nathan Deal in December.

Stewart was next in line and she brought good news, informing commissioners that her department –which is ranked number one in the state in percentage of taxes collected – is seeking a budget reduction of approximately $22,618 to $429,054 in 2019.

Chairman Billy Thurmond pointed out that the reduction was due to “some people (within the department) changing positions and some people making less money.”

As they reviewed the presentation, Commissioner Julie Hughes-Nix noted that Stewart’s expenditures for legal fees also declined when the county hired County Attorney Lynn Frey.

“I noticed your attorney fees were $4,440 in 2017 and this year only $1,500,” she said. “I would recommend to the Board that we take a look at all departments and leave those line items out for attorney fees because we do have a county attorney now.”

The Development Authority operated on a $150,000 budget in 2017. Commissioners voted not to fund the group in 2018 but has chosen to reinstate it in 2019. Trapnell requested an operating budget of $200,000, part of which would be to engage an expert consultant to identify options for Development Authority funding.

Judge Burt is asking for a slight increase in her budget from $309,028 to $316,068. The increase is a result of the 2 percent countywide pay increase approved by the Board of Commissioner and the rest is in retirement contributions.

In 2016, the Director of Administration position was dissolved and Human Resources assumed responsibility for risk management. HR Director Danielle Yarbrough presented a budget request for 2019 which reflected a $25,000 decrease in risk management costs.

For non-risk management activities, she requested a budget increase of about $23,965 to $212,973. The increase would be attributed to group insurance ($6,000), retirement contribution ($5,000), general office supplies ($4,000), commission-approved salary increase ($2,000) and attorney review of the new county employee handbook ($4,000). In this case, outside counsel would be required to perform the review because it would be a conflict of interest for the county attorney to do so.

Yarbrough is also asking the Board to approve a position for a human resource specialist at a salary of $34,153 plus benefits totaling approximately $19,589 and retirement contribution. Currently, there are only two employees in Human Resources.

“The Society for Human Resource Management recommends one human resources person for every 100 employees,” Yarbrough explained. “So we are sorely understaffed.” The county has 284 full-time and 158 part-time employees plus 41 vacancies and 21 frozen positions.

“A lot of department heads are going to be coming to you to ask for positions to be unfrozen and for new positions which is going to increase the burden on my department,” she said. “Even if we had two new employees, we would still be understaffed. But we’re only asking for one.”

Budget reviews will be held at 9 a.m. each day through Thursday and the public is encouraged to attend.

Tuesday, commissioners will review the public defender, elections office, extension service, finance department and public works/transfer station.

BOC says no to smaller lot sizes in Chestatee

News

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – The Dawson County Board of Commissioners unanimously denied a request by Brian Ferris and Chestatee Development Corporation to amend Chestatee subdivision’s Master Plan during Tuesday’s meeting.

Ferris wanted to change the master plan that called for lots in the Linkside section to have 100 foot widths to allow 70-foot widths to accommodate 11 more lots in that section. There are 46 lots in Linkside and 34 remain unsold. Homeowners in Chestatee have strongly objected to the request, saying it would decrease the value of their homes and create additional traffic congestion.

Ferris’ attorney Ethan Underwood argued that his client didn’t need approval of the Board to change the master plan. “The number of lots per unit shall not require further approval by the Planning Commission or Board of Commissioners,” he said. “That’s the law. That’s the master plan.”

In other business, the Board agreed to a request by Georgia State Patrol Post 37 to purchase two radar units and two laser units to equip the patrol cars assigned to the Dawson County area at a cost of $8,890. Commissioner Chris Gaines pointed out that GSP’s law enforcement effort has raised $83,118 for  the county this year.

Commissioners voted unanimously to allow Tax Commissioner Nicole Stewart to write off $73,237.38 in uncollectable taxes due to businesses closing or moving out of county.

The Board also agreed to purchase 16 new fire hydrants at a total cost of $55,440 for Nix Bridge Road, Overlook Drive, Woodland Circle and North Seed Tick Road.

Fire Chief/Public Safety Director Danny Thompson requested the Board appoint Lucas Ray as interim Emergency Management Agency Director while he completes courses required for him to gain Certified EMA status. Commissioners, instead, chose to appoint Thompson as the interim director.

The Fiscal Year 2019 contract with Legacy Link was renewed at a cost of $337,901 and commissioners unanimously approved the Title VI plan for Dawson County Transit.

The Board also approved the following appointments: Kathryn Reagan Smith and Gail Smith (Library Board); Brian Trapnell (Industrial Building Authority); Brian Trapnell and Christie Haynes Moore (Joint Development Authority).

The races in Forsyth County are between Tony Wooten and Jeff Johnson to decide who will replace retiring Sheriff Billy Carlisle and tax commissioner where two newcomers, Andi Henson Juliette and Nicole Stewart, are seeking to fill the vacancy left by Linda Townley who is also retiring this year.

Early voting started July 5 and the Dawson County Elections Office reports that the turnout has beem much heavier than expected. As of Friday afternoon, 1,569 people had cast their ballots

“That’s much greater than we anticipated, especially for a runoff election,” said Dawson County Director of Elections and Registration.

Sheriff, Tax Commissioner Candidates Square Off

News, Politics

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. — A standing-room-only crowd got one last chance to evaluate the candidates for Dawson County Sheriff and Tax Commissioner Tuesday in the Meeting Room of Fire Station No.2 on Dawsonville Highway.

Tax Commissioner candidates Nicole Stewart and Andi Henson-Juliette provided a tepid, respectful opening act for a slightly more combative performance by Sheriff candidates Tony Wooten and Jeff Johnson.

Henson-Juliette stressed her experience in handling multi-million dollar budgets while Stewart placed the emphasis on her customer service experience and community involvement.

Henson-Juliette is a former analyst for a Department of Defense contractor and the FBI and has managed budgets in excess of $50 million. She is a graduate of Dawson County High School and North Georgia College and State University.

“A lack of experience in the Tax Commissioner’s Office could be detrimental to taxpayers since 75 percent of the county’s budget comes from sales tax,” she said. “I’m the only candidate with experience managing budgets like that.”
Stewart said she has solid management experience. “I have effectively managed 8-10 people and have helped teach many small businesses how to manage a budget.”

She is a former banker with experience in the loan department. She is also an honors graduate of Dawson County High School and North Georgia College and State University who recently earned her Masters degree at Brenau University. Active in many community affairs, she was named Dawson County’s Outstanding Citizen in 2015.

The sheriff candidates did find some areas of agreement, for example no-knock warrants. Both agreed they were sometimes necessary for the safety of officers. They also agreed the county needs a strict policy to restrict high-speed chases.

But the tension began when Johnson implied that Wooten had made promises to deputies who publicly endorsed him in a half-page ad that ran in the local newspaper this week.

“I can say a lot of promises had to be made,” Johnson said. “They’re doing all they can to get their man elected.”

Candidates were given an opportunity to rebut their opponent’s comments and both men took full advantage.

Wooten bristled at Johnson’s remark, “They haven’t been promised a thing.”

When Johnson pointed out that he had more years of experience than Wooten, Wooten responded with “All the candidates in the race had experience. It’s not the number of years experience that makes you a leader. I’ve led five of the six divisions in the sheriff’s office.”

Early voting in both races will continue through Friday, July 22. Election day will be July 26.

Final Candidate Forum Scheduled Tuesday

Guests are invited to prepare questions to ask the candidates and submit them as they enter.

The candidates for sheriff are Captain Tony Wooten, an 18-year veteran of the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office and Major Jeff Johnson, a 23-year law enforcement veteran.

Wooten has commanded all but one department in the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office and currently supervises the community policing program and school resource officers while serving as the Public Information Officer.
Johnson is currently the head of the Dawson County detention center and has experience in patrols, courts, investigation, specialized assignments internal affairs and community programs.

Wooten won the four-candidate May primary with 1,527 votes while Johnson finished second with 1,157.

The other runoff race is between Andi Hinson Juliette and Nicole Stewart to decide who will become the county’s next tax commissioner.

Juliette is a former analyst for a Department of Defense contractor and the FBI and has managed budgets in excess of $50 million. She is a graduate of Dawson County High School and North Georgia College and State University.

Stewart is a former banker with experience in the loan department. She is also an honors graduate of Dawson County High School and North Georgia College and State University who is currently working on her Masters degree at Brenau University in Gainesville. Active in many community affairs, she was named Dawson County’s Outstanding Citizen in 2015.

Tony Wooten and Jeff Johnson survived a four-candidate race in the May primary to advance to the runoff. Wooten won by a sizeable margin 1,527 to Johnson’s 1,157 but neither man garnered the 51 percent plus 1 vote necessary to avoid the runoff.

Thurmond, Gaines and Nix Post Victories Sheriff, Tax Commissioner Races Head for Runoff

News, Politics

DAWSON COUNTY, Ga. — Chairman-elect Billy Thurmond was taking a much deserved rest in Florida Wednesday after a landslide victory in last night’s General Primary election.

Thurmond received 3,041 votes to defeat his opponent Peter J. Hill by nearly a 3 to 1 margin.

“We worked real hard to pull this out and we’re very pleased with the results,” he said. Thurmond said his opponent called him to congratulate hi on running a clean race, something both candidates did.

When he returns on Saturday, Thurmond said he wants to get to work on a plan to improve employee retention. “We’ve lost a lot of people in the last five years. I know commissioners are looking at the pay scale not and that’s a good thing. I’m looking forward to working with them on a lot of things.”

Chris Gaines will be the other new face on the Board of Commissioners. Gaines, who will represent District 2, won a very close victory over Tim Davis with 2,015 votes to Davis’ 1,924.

District 4 Commissioner Julie Hughes Nix received 2,556 votes to beat Heather Hulsebus who had 1,495.

Elsewhere, there will be a runoff in the Sheriff and Tax Commissioner races.
Tony Wooten was the top vote getter Tuesday with 1,526 to Jeff Johnson’s 1,156.

The two will meet in the Jume 26 runoff.

Andi Henson Juliette led the way in the Tax Commissioner’s race with 1,212 votes. But Nicole Stewart was a close second with 1,025, enough to secure a place in the runoff.

Nicole Stewart, Candidate Tax Commissioner

News, Politics

To provide voters the information they need to make an informed choice in the May 24 General Primary election, Fetch Your News will work hard to present a profile of each candidate running for public office. All candidates will be contacted and offered an opportunity to respond to questions.
DAWSONVILLE, Ga. — After more than a decade working in the banking industry and donating many hours to Dawson County non-profits and service organizations, Nicole Stewart decided that running for Dawson County Tax Commissioner would be the next logical step in her career.

“I actually thought about it several years ago,” Stewart said Wednesday. “As a banker, I have worked in the loan department and at one point worked closely with the Tax Commissioner’s Office doing title work and other necessary tasks. That gave me a better understanding of the different functions of the office. When I heard Linda (Townley) was retiring, I decided to campaign for the job.”

She graduated with honors from Dawson County High School and North Georgia State College and University. She is currently working on her MBA at Brenau University. She has been very active in her home county as the Chairperson for Relay for Life, Secretary of the Bowen Arts Center, a member of the Rotary Club and Ambassador of the Year for the Chamber of Commerce. In 2015, she was named Outstanding Citizen of Dawson County.

Stewart said working with so many organizations has helped her develop and polish her leadership and customer service skills and she believes those skills will serve the county well.

“I believe my banking experience is more closely related to what they do in the Tax Office than the other candidates,” she said. “There are times when taxpayers may need to set up a payment plan and that is something I do right now for our customers.”

Stewart said her vision for the office is to reopen a satellite office on Hwy. 53 near Ga. 400. “It’s not always easy for the people who work over there to get to the current office,” she said. “I don’t know why it was closed but I would like to look into reopening it. Even if we can’t afford to staff it, maybe we could open a self-service kiosk there.”

She also said she would like to have some sort of outreach program to explain to citizens what the Tax Office does and why it does it, possibly through modernization of the website. “The current website isn’t bad,” she said. “I would just like to make it more interactive, possibly allow customers to make payments online.”

Candidates Make Their Case at Dawson Forum.

News, Politics

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. — With the May 24 General Primary three weeks away, candidates for Dawson County Commission Chairman, Tax Commissioner and Commission Districts 2 and 4 presented their case for election Monday night in the Dawson County High School Auditorium.

County Commission Chairman
Commission Chairman candidate Billy Thurmond has served the citizens of Dawson County for 37 years. He started in the Parks and Recreation Department and for the last 14 years has served as the Director of Emergency Services.

Thurmond said a top priority will be improved communications between county government and the citizens as well as the staff and other elected officials. “Communications is the key to success in anything we try to do,” he said.

Thurmond added that the county needs an employment retention plan. ” We’ve seen over 300 employees leave in the last five years,” he said. “That comes at a huge cost to taxpayers of well over $1 million.”

Another proactive plan he wants the Board to implement within the current budget is a road restoration plan where roads can be fixed to provide 10 to 15 years of service.

Thurmond’s opponent Peter Hill is an architect in private practice for 18 years who says what is needed on the Board is business representation.

“I’m a business advocate and I want to see us become an even more pro-business community,” Hill said.

Hill is a member of the Chamber of Commerce who served as Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2013. He served three terms as Chairman of the Development Authority and was appointed by Georgia House Speaker David Ralston to the Georgia Mountains Regional Development Commission.

“I have a balanced vision of economic development,” he said. “I want to bring opportunity to our county so when kids graduate they have place to start their business and grow their family but I would also preserve our crown jewel which is our natural environment.”

District 2 County Commission
Chris Gaines and Tim Davis are the candidates in District 2.

Davis is a truck driver and native of Dawson County. He was elected supervisor of the soil and water conservation district for two terms in the late 1970’s. He says the county is moving in the right direction but needs to prepare for the growth that is coming.

He wants to see most of that growth remain in the Georgia 400 corridor. “I’d also like to ensure our roads and bridges are well maintained, that our children receive a good education and our elderly are well cared for,” he added.

Gaines has lived in Dawson County since 2001. He has a business management degree from the University of North Georgia.

He earned the biggest laugh of the evening when he mocked Donald Trump, saying “My plan is to build a wall around Dawson County and make Forsyth County pay for it.”

Gaines said the county commission has laid a good foundation for the community but now that Chairman Mike Berg and District 2 Commissioner James Swafford are leaving, the commission needs someone who has demonstrated leadership capabilities. The former Dawsonville City Councilman said he is the right choice.

He wants to recruit high tech companies and light industry to the 400 corridor. “Moving forward, we also need a revitalized downtown area with a down home atmosphere and we need to appreciate our rural areas and enjoy them and keep them the way they are.”

District 4 County Commission
Incumbent Commissioner Julie Hughes Nix has served four terms on the Board of Commissioners but said, “I consider myself a career public servant, not a career politician.”

She encouraged voters to look at a candidate’s accomplishments when making their decision.

“We have a new library, a new government center, a new jail, a new fire station and we are redoing the Senior Center,” “The good news is that all of that is already paid for.”

Her opponent Heather Hulsebus is a professional in the healthcare industry, President of the Republican Women of Dawson County and a member of the Dawson County Tea Party. She has also done a great deal of volunteer work in the county for non-profit organizations like Relay for Life.

Hulsebus said she is running because it is time for change, new perspectives and new leadership.

“It’s important that we continue to grow at a rate that all our citizens can handle,” she said. “I know we can find a balance of growth that will allow us to keep the gift that this county has to offer.”

Tax Commssioner
Andi Hinson Juliette has experience managing budgets far larger than that of Dawson County. A graduate of North Georgia College and State University, she is a former analyst for a Department of Defense contractor and the FBI. She has managed budgets in excess of $50 million.

“I’m the only candidate with the experience of managing a budget this size,” she said. “I’ve proven my trustworthiness by way of my top secret security clearance. I’ve proven my ability to deliver the highest level of customer service. If you only remember one thing from tonight, I hope you remember the tax commissioner has a tremendous responsibility and that errors, lack of experience or poor judgement can have an extremely detrimental effect on our quality of life.”

Karin McKee, a native of Dawson County, is making her second bid to become Tax Commissioner. She ran for the office in 2012 and lost by 150 votes. She has worked in the healthcare industry for most of here career. She worked as business office manager for Ashton Woods Convalescent Center in Atlanta where she managed accounts payable and receivable, Medicare billing and served as consultant for medical records. In 1990, she was named assistant administrator and bookkeeper of Knollwood Terrace (Nursing Center) where her responsibilities included hiring staff, setting up policies and procedures, managing budgets and Medicare and Medicaid billing.

“I’m very familiar with budgets between $10 and $18 million,” she said. A top priority for her is to do away with the cold government environment she sees in the Tax Commissioner’s office today.

Johnny Glass is an entrepreneur who built custom homes until the economy drove so many small businessmen out of business. Since then he has owned a towing and recovery service. If he’s elected he said his top priority will be to maintain the current high rate of tax collection. “In my business now, I collect about 99.4 percent,” he said.

Nicole Stewart is also a Dawson County native who has worked in many volunteer organizations, including Relay for Life and the Boy Scouts of America. She is a graduate of North Georgia College and State University and is working on her MBA at Brenau University. In 2015, she was named Dawson County’s Outstanding Citizen.

“I will bring my professionalism, my enthusiasm and my leadership skills to this office,” she said. “I’ve developed and polished my leadership and customer service skills and I know if I’m elected I can do a great job.”

The Tax Commissioner race also features four candidates, Andi Henson Juliette, Karin McKee, Johnny Glass and Nicole Stewart.
