Jones County Development Authority members agreed to seek outside opinions before deciding their next step in the development of Griswoldville Park.

The Oct. 8 meeting began with an update of deposit accounts and the 2014 budget. Assistant Director Natalie Smith reported that the budget is balanced but was pared down to basic needs.

Authority member Josh Lurie explained that the Authority, which is funded by the Board of Commissioners, would go to the commissioners if funds are needed for an unbudgeted item.

Executive Directory Kathyjo Gordon said the covenants for Griswoldville Park have been finalized, and the question remains when to put them in force. Attorney Kevin Brown said, once adopted, the covenants would stay in force for 20 years.

“For the most part, covenants are for the benefit of those looking at the property. They can always be amended,” he said.

Brown said the restrictions could be useful in keeping an unwanted prospect out of the park.
