The Armuchee-Glenwood Education Foundation meets tonight at 6. to hear more about the 2017 education special tax package. The meeting is set for the Armuchee High’s auditorium and Dr. John Jackson, superintendent of Floyd County Schools, is scheduled to answer questions about the county education package. Armuchee High, as proposed, would receive funding for major improvements if the education tax passes on Nov. 7.
An organizational meeting of the Rome/Floyd Citizens for Progress Committee in support of the SPLOST 2017 vote is set for this evening at 5:30 at Makervillage, 252 N. Fifth Ave. in Rome.
Sign of the times: If you spotted someone taking down Will Byington’s signs for Rome Board of Education on Wednesday (we did), don’t be alarmed. We’re still a few weeks away from that expected round of vandalism and theft. Byington, in a note Wednesday evening, says he’s replacing the signs because they featured the word “re-elect.” He was appointed to the board a year ago to replace Judy Sims following her passing. He’s among 15 people running for seven four-year seats on the board on the Nov. 7 ballot.
