Nelson said indications are a flood event similar to that in 2005.

That year flood waters forced the closure of a number of roads in the north end and some residences were inundated with water.

The flooding is likely to be most severe in the areas of Howard Creek, Red Bull Island and similarly low-lying areas on the north end, Nelson said.

Folks in those areas are urged to take precautions.

Other business:

After a complaint from resident Billy Traylor regarding a March 27 debate among members of the Apalachee Regional Planning Council concerning a loan sought by Traylor’s company, commissioners voted unanimously to replace Bryan as the BOCC representative to the board and replace her with Commissioner Ward McDaniel.

Bryan was also on the losing end of vote to approve a new model for economic development in the county. She sought to clarify some language in the proposal included in the BOCC meeting packet.
