Fowler contends county was not paid full value of timber at lake

The former timber consultant for the Grady County Board of Commissioners confirmed Tuesday night that the county lost out on approximately $600,000 in revenue from the sale of timber in the Tired Creek Lake bed by revising its contract with N&W Timber in January 2014. That change released the firm from cutting all of the timber and the extensive cleaning of the lake bottom.

“What hurt us was the mitigation,” Grady County Commission Vice Chairman Ray Prince commented Tuesday night.
