Walton County BOC to vote on next step in park proposal on donated land in Walnut Grove

The Walton County Board of Commissioners will have its March 2022 meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

One of the items on the agenda is to approve a contract for design services for a new Walton County park on Highway 81 next to Walton County Fire Rescue 3.

On Tuesday, the BOC is expected to approve $79,760 to Lose Design for services which include pre-construction and design phase to get the project underway.
