The Rivian attorney asked the board if this was there regularly scheduled meeting. If it is she said it did not require any further public notice. That was before the board decided to table the vote till next months meeting. Rivian does not want the citizens to have any voice. They want to shove this unwanted monstrosity on our rural agricultural county. If they do, most of the citizens may not be able to afford to live in Morgan County due to the huge increase in property taxs. Anyone who loves rural life and Morgan County better pay attention and take a stand. Or we will become Metro Atlanta and the only people wanting to live here will be "city dwellers" who don't understand why anyone would want to live in rural Georgia.
