The Banks County Board of Commissioners, during the Nov. 29 meeting, approved the purchase of eight parcels of land for the on-going Faulkner Drive road project.
After meeting in closed session for approximately one hour, the BOC unanimously approved spending roughly $250,000 to purchase the eight parcels for right-of-way for the project.
$200,000 will come out of a designated timber fund and the other $50,000-$60,000 will come out of the 2012 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) revenues.
The project is a road improvement project for the intersection of Faulkner Road and Highway 441 in the Banks Crossing area.
