Some lucky person could soon own Macons former juvenile hall.
The old Macon Regional Youth Detention Center, closed in 2004, has been declared surplus and is on a list of properties the state wants to sell. The 8-acre site includes the main RYDC facility and a storage building. Maintenance reports say the structures are in fair condition and that the mechanical systems have not been used recently.
The price of the one time short-term detention center will be valued by an appraiser upon the state Legislatures approval of the properties listed in House Resolution 205 by state Rep. Jay Neal, R-LaFayette.
Lucas wants Hancock County districts redrawn
State Sen. David Lucas, D-Macon is filing a bill to redraw districts for Hancock Countys commission and school board. He said districts for the two bodies were not redrawn on 2010 U.S. Census data. Generally, Georgia counties rebalance their districts once a decade, on the same schedule as the country as a whole, but they are not obligated to do so.
