Three citizens and some members of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners verbally attacked commissioner Tom Crow Monday night for his reported part in a lawsuit filed by four citizens to stop work on the new West Jackson EMS station. A hearing on the lawsuit is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday in Jackson County Superior Court.
Albon Gilbert, Jerry Tate, James Lyle and Doug Waters Sr. claim the county has not lived up to the terms agreed to in the 2010 SPLOST, which is funding the EMS station. The plaintiffs are asking for a temporary restraining order to stop work on the controversial EMS project. Crow, the incoming BOC chairman, helped facilitate the lawsuit.
