The Bullock County Commission met on June 8, 2020. Part of the agenda addressed expenditures. It was voted to approve the May 2020 expenditures, including payroll totaling $506,956.85.

All voted in favor with one opposition from Commissioner John McGowan who opposed the expenditures for Eric Love, CPA, and Contractor Lee Mahaffey. Commissioner Don Larkins was absent.

Upon recommendation from County Engineer Jason DeShazo, it was voted that the bids for County Roads 106, 177, and 165 be let on July 15, 2020, for road restructuring.

Upon the recommendation from DeShazo, it was voted that the 1998 Chevrolet 1500 truck be declared surplus and placed on govdeals.com.

County Administrator Patrick Smith suggested amendments to the county's credit card policy.

It was approved that the maximum individual purchase not exceed $2,500, and the maximum monthly purchase not exceed $4,500.

Upon the request by Akshay Patel, it was voted to approve the business transfer from Waters Grocery to Union Springs Food Mart and to approve the retail alcohol (beer & wine) license.

It was decided to recess this regular meeting and reconvene on June 12, 2020, to discuss the Bullock County Sunday alcohol sales, a countywide curfew, and any updated guidance on the courthouse closure.
