The contingency fund in Jones County’s 2014 budget was hard hit after Board of Commissioners members dealt with funding requests at last week’s meeting, which included the salary for a county-paid assistant district attorney.

Betty Harris of Kingsview Village came before the board members at the Oct. 8 meeting asking for clarification about what will happen to the area that is currently part of Macon after the Macon-Bibb consolidation is complete.

“We are in new waters because we are about to be de-annexed,” she said.

Chairman Preston Hawkins said the residents would continue to receive services from the Macon Water Authority, and fire protection would be provided by Jones County’s volunteer fire department.

Commissioner Daylon Martin, who also lives in the neighborhood, said he does not expect an interruption of services for garbage collection. He said he is negotiating with the company.
