Taylor seeks to have Hwy. 112 designated as Maddox Highway
A public notice published in this edition of The Messenger reveals Rep. Darlene Taylor’s intention to introduce a resolution in the General Assembly to dedicate the portion of Georgia Highway 112 within Grady County as the Representative “Doc” Gene Maddox Highway.
The legal notice says the designation is “in honor of his achievements, accomplishments, and contributions to the State of Georgia.”
The estimated cost of the dedication is set at $1,500. In an email from an aide to Rep. Taylor, the cost of the dedication will not be borne by the Grady County Commission or any government entity.
Last Tuesday night, the Grady County Commission voted unanimously to authorize Chairman Ray Prince to execute a resolution honoring Dr Maddox and approving of the highway dedication in his honor.
In an email to County Clerk Carrie Croy, Taylor’s aide wrote that the dedication is not permanent and will not apply to the entire highway. Specifics were yet to be worked out with the Georgia Department of Transportation.
On Tuesday, the county clerk said no date for a dedication ceremony had been discussed.
