Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENCROACHMENT: County buffer-zone agreement for Robins Air Force Base (GA)
Bibb, Houston form pact to buy land encroaching on Robins Air Force Base

Macon Telegraph (GA)
July 7, 2010

An effort to fix a Robins Air Force Base problem officially went regional Tuesday.

Bibb County commissioners agreed Tuesday to work with Houston County, the state and the federal government to buy property "encroaching" on the base by being in a noise zone. The agreement also sets the stage for other governments to consider joining the pact, Bibb County Commission Chairman Sam Hart said.

The agreement sets up a plan for counties to share in any taxes or profits from properties bought to reduce the encroachment. Hart said counties such as Peach, Monroe, Twiggs and Pulaski could agree "to participate proportionate to their number of employees" at the base.
