The Board of Directors of the Chattooga County Chamber of Commerce hopes to name a new director in early October, according to board member Rickey Hughes.
Hughes told a crowd of almost 40 on Tuesday that the board was in the process of looking over resumes. His comments came at the first membership lunch meeting since the resignation of former Chamber President David Tidmore at the end of July.
The meeting also featured the election of two new board members, Jordan Poole, executive director of the Paradise Gardens Foundation and Jamye McDonald of the Department of Family and Children Services. They will join holdover board members Hughes, Earle Rainwater, Scott Skinner and Judy Holcomb.
Hughes emphasized that the Chamber will be returning to a more traditional role in the business community.

Friday, 19 September 2014 14:04

More than 6,000 solar panels should be in place by the end of this week at the Hannah Solar site near Lyerly, according to company President Pete Marte. Heavy rains in recent weeks have slowed work but Marte said the company will soon be able to “go live.”

“We should have been done up there two or three weeks ago but the rain has really slowed us down,” Marte said on Monday. “The rain put a big damper on what we were able to do but we were fortunate that we could move work crews to some of our other sites to keep them busy,” he said.
