ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS OF THE
SECOND SESSION OF THE 156TH
GENERAL ASSEMBLY
OF THE STATE OF GEORGIA
2022
COMPILED AND PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY OF THE STATE
Volume Two Book Two

COMPILER'S NOTE
General Acts and Resolutions of the 2022 Regular Session of the General Assembly of Georgia will be found in Volume One beginning at page 1. The Supplementary Appropriations Act for FY 2021-2022 and the Appropriations Act for FY 2022-2023 will be found in the Volume One Appendix. These two Acts have been separately placed in the Appendix in order to maintain the special formatting and unique characteristics of the underlying bills. Local and Special Acts and Resolutions will be found in Volume Two beginning at page 3501. Home rule actions by counties and consolidated governments and by municipalities filed in the Office of the Secretary of State between May 1, 2021, and May 1, 2022, are printed in Volume Two beginning at pages 6119 and 6145, respectively. There are no numbered pages between page 838, the last page of Volume One, and page 3501, the first page of Volume Two. This allows both volumes to be prepared simultaneously. The only page numbers in the Volume One Appendix will be those appearing in the underlying bills.
Indexes; lists of Acts, Bills, and Resolutions and their Georgia Laws page numbers; material related to courts; population charts; lists of members of the General Assembly; referendum results; and the Governor's veto messages are printed in Volume Three. Indexes cover material in both Volumes One and Two. The tabular indexes list matter by broad categories. The general index is a detailed alphabetical index by subject matter. When possible, general Acts have been indexed by reference to the titles of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated which they amend and the tabular index contains a list of Code sections which have been amended, enacted, or repealed.
Each Act and Resolution is preceded by a caption written by the compilers of the Georgia Laws solely to assist the reader in quickly determining the subject matter of the Act or Resolution. Except as otherwise noted in the volume, this caption includes the Act number assigned by the Governor and the House or Senate Bill or Resolution number which it was given when it was introduced in the General Assembly. These captions are not part of the Act or Resolution when they are enacted or adopted by the General Assembly. Each Act or Resolution which was signed by the Governor is followed by the approval date on which it was signed by the Governor.

AN ACT

To amend an Act creating a Board of Commissioners of Glascock County, approved February 8, 1945 (Ga. L. 1945, p. 569), as amended, so as to add two members to the board; to provide for the districts for the election of members of the board; to provide for definitions and inclusions; to provide for the method of election and continuation in office; to provide for related matters; to provide for effective dates; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act creating a Board of Commissioners of Glascock County, approved February 8, 1945 (Ga. L. 1945, p. 569), as amended, is amended by revising Section 2 as follows:

"SECTION 2. (a) For the purposes of this Act, Glascock County shall be divided into five districts as described in subsection (b) of this section. One member of the board shall be elected from each district, and no member shall be elected from any district unless he or she is a bona fide resident of the same and has been for at least one year prior to his or her election. Each member of the board shall be elected from the district in which they reside. (b) For the purpose of electing members of the board of commissioners, Glascock County shall be divided into five districts. The districts shall be and correspond to those four numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Glascock Co. Plan Name: GlascockCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'. District 5 shall include all of the territory in Glascock County.
(c)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical

boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (2) Any part of Glascock County which is not included in any district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Glascock County which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (d) Any part of Glascock County which is not included in any such district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (e) Any part of Glascock County which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (f) The three members of the board of commissioners who were elected at the general election in November, 2020, shall continue in office for the four-year terms to which they were elected and until successors are elected and qualified as provided in this Act. The two new members of the board of commissioners shall be elected at the general election in November, 2022, and shall serve four-year terms of office and until successors are elected and qualified as provided in this Act. Successors to members elected under this subsection shall be elected at the state-wide general election next preceding the expiration of such terms of office and shall take office on January 1 following their election for terms of four years and until their successors are elected and qualified. (g) Districts 1, 2, and 3 as they existed on the effective date of this Act shall continue to be designated as Districts 1, 2, and 3 respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and, on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this section. On the effective date of this Act, Districts 4 and 5 shall be created as described under this Act, and the members of the board to serve from such districts shall be elected as provided herein."

its approval by the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval; and this Act shall otherwise become on effective January 1, 2023.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act creating a board of commissioners of Turner County, approved August 18, 1927 (Ga. L. 1927, p. 702), as amended, particularly by an Act approved April 5, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 4793), is amended by revising subsections (a) and (b) of Section 1 as follows:

GEORGIA LAWS 2022 SESSION

4457

"(a) For the purpose of electing members of the board of commissioners of Turner County, Turner County is divided into five commissioner districts. Such districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in and attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Turner Co. Plan Name: TurnerCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of Turner County which is not included in any district described in subsection (a) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Turner County which is described in subsection (a) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. (a) Those members of the Board of Commissioners of Turner County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former commissioner districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act.

"(a) For the purpose of electing members of the board of education of Turner County, the Turner County School District is divided into five education districts. One member of the board shall be elected from such district by the voters voting in such district. Such districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in and attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Turner Co. Plan Name: TurnerCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(b)(1) When used in such attachment, the term 'VTD' (voting tabulation district) shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (2) The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.

"Section 2. (a) For the purpose of electing members of the board of education, the Taliaferro County School District shall be divided into five education districts. One member of the board, which shall consist of five members, shall be elected from each such district. Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Taliaferro SB Plan Name: TaliaferroSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.

(3) Any part of the Taliaferro County School District which is described in subsection (a) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district.

"Section 4. (a) Those members of the Board of Education of Taliaferro County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act providing for the election of members of the board of education of Tattnall County, approved February 29, 1968 (Ga. L. 1968, p. 2077), as amended, particularly by an Act approved April 4, 2012 (Ga. L. 2022, p. 4654), is amended by revising Section 2 as follows:

"SECTION 2. (a) For the purpose of electing members of the Board of Education of Tattnall County, the Tattnall County School District is divided into five districts. Such districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Tattnall Co. Plan Name: TattnallCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of the Tattnall County School District which is not included in any district described in subsection (a) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of the Tattnall County School District which is described in subsection (a) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. (a) Those members of the Board of Education of Tattnall County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office

shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act.

SECTION 3. The provisions of this Act necessary to conduct elections for the members of the Board of Education of Tattnall County in 2022 shall become effective upon the approval of this Act by the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval.

SECTION 1. An Act changing the method of choosing the members of the Banks County Board of Education, approved April 4, 1967 (Ga. L. 1967, p. 2538) is amended by revising subsections (a) and (b) of Section 1 as follows:
"(a) For purposes of electing members of the board of education, the Banks County School District is divided into five education districts. One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. Education Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Banks SB Plan Name: BanksSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.

SECTION 2.

AN ACT

To amend an Act creating a board of commissioners of Cherokee County, approved March 30, 1989 (Ga. L. 1989, p. 4295), as amended, particularly by an Act approved March 5, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 4044), so as to revise the districts for the election of members of the board of commissioners; to provide for definitions and inclusions; to provide for manner of election; to provide for related matters; to provide effective dates; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act creating a board of commissioners of Cherokee County, approved March 30, 1989 (Ga. L. 1989, p. 4295), as amended, particularly by an Act approved March 5, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 4044), is amended by revising subsections (a) through (e) of Section 2 as follows:
"(a) The Board of Commissioners of Cherokee County shall consist of five members. One of the members shall be the chairperson and shall be elected by a majority of the registered voters of the county voting in the election. Each candidate for the other four positions shall be a resident of the commissioner district created by this section which such person offers to represent and shall be elected by a majority vote of the voters of such commissioner district voting in the election. (b) For the purpose of electing the four district commissioners, Cherokee County is divided into four commissioner districts which shall be and correspond to those four numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Cherokee CC Plan Name: CherokeeCC-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(c)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical

(2) Any part of Cherokee County which is not included in any district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Cherokee County which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (d) Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, and 4, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former commissioner districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act. (e) Those members of the Board of Commissioners of Cherokee County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors."

SECTION 2. The provisions of this Act necessary to conduct elections for the members of the Board of Commissioners of Cherokee County in 2022 shall become effective upon the approval of this Act by the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval.

L. 1996, p. 3507), as amended, particularly by an Act approved February 27, 2012 (Ga.

Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Dodge Plan Name: DodgeSB-2002 Plan Type: Local SB'.
(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of the Dodge County School District which is not included in any district described in subsection (a) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of the Dodge County School District which is described in subsection (a) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

(a) Those members of the Board of Education of Dodge County who are serving as such immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office, shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Education Districts 1 through 7, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Education Districts 1 through 7, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former education districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act.

The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a 'VTD' heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.

(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.

SECTION 1. An Act establishing a system of public schools in the City of Jefferson, Georgia, approved July 30, 1912 (Ga. L. 1912, p. 1019), as amended, is amended by revising subsections (c) and (d) of Section 17.1 as follows:

One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. Those districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: City of Jefferson Plan Name: CityJeffersonCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.

census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (2) Any part of the City of Jefferson School District which is not included in any district described in subsection (c) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of the City of Jefferson School District which is described in subsection (c) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. Said Act is further amended by revising paragraphs (1) and (4) of subsection (h) of Section 17.1 as follows:
"(1) The members of the board of education in office on the effective date of this section shall continue in office for the terms to which they were elected and until their successors are elected and qualified as provided in this Act." "(4) Education Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist on the effective date of this subsection, shall continue to be designated as Education Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this section, and, on and after the effective date of this subsection, such members of the board serving from those former education districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this section."

SECTION 3. All laws and parts of laws in conflict with this Act are repealed.

To amend an Act creating a board of commissioners for Evans County, approved August 16, 1915 (Ga.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

4626

LOCAL AND SPECIAL ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS, VOL. II

"SECTION 2. (a) For the purpose of electing the six members of the board from commissioner districts, Evans County shall be divided into six commissioner districts. One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. Such districts shall be and correspond to those six numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Evans Co. Plan Name: EvansCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of Evans County which is not included in any district described in subsection (a) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Evans County which is described in subsection (a) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. (a) Those members of the Board of Commissioners of Evans County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former commissioner districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act.

Act No. 479 (House Bill No. 1237).

AN ACT

To amend an Act reestablishing the Board of Commissioners of Coffee County, approved April 24, 2013 (Ga. L. 2013, p. 3598), so as to change the description of the commissioner districts; to provide for definitions and inclusions; to provide for continuation in office of current members; to provide for effective dates; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act reestablishing the Board of Commissioners of Coffee County, approved April 24, 2013 (Ga. L. 2013, p. 3598), is amended in Section 3 by revising subsections (b), (c), and (h) and by adding a new subsection to read as follows:
"(b) For the purpose of electing members of the board of commissioners, Coffee County shall be divided into five commissioner districts. Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in and attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Coffee Co. Plan Name: CoffeeCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(c)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of Coffee County which is not included in any district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Coffee County which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall

instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia." "(h) Those members of the Board of Commissioners of Coffee County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (i) Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former commissioner districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act."

SECTION 2. The provisions of this Act necessary to conduct elections for the members of the Board of Commissioners of Coffee County in 2022 shall become effective upon the approval of this Act by the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval. The remaining provisions of this Act shall become effective on January 1, 2023.

AN ACT

To amend an Act providing for the election of the members of the Baldwin County Board of Education, approved April 3, 1972 (Ga. L. 1972, p. 3325), as amended, particularly by an Act approved February 29, 2012 (Ga.

Act approved February 29, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 3874), is amended by revising Section 1 as follows:

"SECTION 1. (a) The Board of Education of Baldwin County shall be composed of five members. For purposes of electing members of the board of education, the Baldwin County School District shall be divided into five education districts. Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Baldwin Co. Plan Name: BaldwinCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'. (b) For the purposes of such plan:
(1) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census for 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (2) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (c) Any part of the Baldwin County School District which is not included in any district described in subsection (a) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. Any part of the Baldwin County School District which is described in subsection (a) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (d) Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act."

SECTION 2. Those members of the Board of Education of Baldwin County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors.

February 15, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 3558), is amended by revising subsections (b) through (e) of Section 1 as follows:
"(b) For the purpose of electing the five members of the board of education, Putnam County shall be divided into five education districts. One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. Those districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Putnam SB Plan Name: PutnamSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'. (c) For the purposes of such plan:
(1) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (2) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (d) Any part of the Putnam County School District which is not included in any district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (e) Any part of the Putnam County School District which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. (a) Those members of the Board of Education of Putnam County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act.

The election of members of the board shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 2 of Title 21 of the O.C.G.A., the 'Georgia Election Code.' (d) Those members of the board who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (e) Members of the board shall be elected at the November general election next preceding the expiration of such terms of office and shall take office on January 1 following their election for terms of four years and until their successors are elected and qualified. (f) Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and, on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of

FORSYTH COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION; DISTRICTS; MANNER OF ELECTION.

No. 483 (House Bill No. 1246).

AN ACT

To amend an Act providing for the Forsyth County Board of Education, approved March 24, 1992 (Ga. L. 1992, p. 5052), as amended, particularly by an Act approved September 21, 2011 (Ga. L. 2011 Ex. Sess., p. 352), so as to revise the districts for the election of members of the board of education; to provide for definitions and inclusions; to provide for method of election; to provide for related matters; to provide effective dates; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act providing for the Forsyth County Board of Education, approved March 24, 1992 (Ga. L. 1992, p. 5052), as amended, particularly by an Act approved September 21, 2011 (Ga. L. 2011 Ex. Sess., p. 352), is amended by striking subsections (b) and (c) of Section 1 and inserting in lieu thereof new subsections (b) and (c) to read as follows:
"(b) For the purpose of electing the members of the board, the Forsyth County School District shall be divided into five education districts. The districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: HD25 Plan Name: ForsythCCSB-LegDraft-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(c)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of the Forsyth County School District which is not included in any district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.

4678

LOCAL AND SPECIAL ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS, VOL. II

(3) Any part of the Forsyth County School District which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(4)(A) Districts 1, 3, and 4, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Districts 1, 3, and 4, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and, on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this section. (B) District 2, as it exists immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall be designated as District 5, but as newly described under this Act, and, on and after the effective date of this Act, such member of the board serving from that former district shall be deemed to be serving from and representing his or her respective district as newly described under this section. (C) District 5, as it exists immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall be designated as District 2, but as newly described under this Act, and, on and after the effective date of this Act, such member of the board serving from that former district shall be deemed to be serving from and representing his or her respective district as newly described under this section."

SECTION 2. Said Act is further amended by striking Section 3 in its entirety and inserting in lieu thereof a new Section 3 to read as follows:

"SECTION 3. (a) The members of the board of education who were elected at the general election in November, 2018, shall continue in office for the terms to which they were elected and until their successors are elected and qualified as provided in this Act. The members of the board of education who were elected at the general election in November, 2020, shall continue in office for the terms to which they were elected and until their successors are elected and qualified as provided in this Act. (b) Successors to members serving on the effective date of this Act shall be elected at the November general election next preceding the expiration of such terms of office and shall take office on January 1 following their election for terms of four years and until their successors are elected and qualified."

SECTION 3. The provisions of this Act necessary to conduct elections for the members of the Forsyth County Board of Education in 2022 shall become effective upon the approval of this Act by

the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval. The remaining provisions of this Act shall become effective on January 1, 2023.

LOCAL AND SPECIAL ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS, VOL. II

"(b) For purposes of electing members of the board of education, the Ware County School District is divided into seven education districts. One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. The seven education districts shall be and correspond to those seven numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Ware SB Plan Name: WareSB-2022 Plan Type: Local SB'.
(c)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of the Ware County School District which is not included in any district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of the Ware County School District which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district.

(a) Those members of the Board of Education of Ware County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors.

AN ACT

To amend an Act creating a board of commissioners for Ware County, approved March 15, 1963 (Ga. L. 1963, p. 2237), as amended, particularly by an Act approved May 13, 2008 (Ga. L. 2008, p. 4159), so as to change the boundaries of the commissioner districts; to provide for certain definitions and inclusions; to provide for continuation in office of current members; to provide for effective dates; to provide for related matters; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act creating a board of commissioners for Ware County, approved March 15, 1963 (Ga. L. 1963, p. 2237), as amended, particularly by an Act approved May 13, 2008 (Ga. L. 2008, p. 4159), is amended by revising Section 2 as follows:

"SECTION 2. (a) For the purpose of electing members of the board of commissioners, other than the chairperson, Ware County is divided into four commissioner districts. One member shall be elected from each such district. The four commission districts shall be and correspond to those four numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Ware Co. Plan Name: WareCC-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of Ware County which is not included in any district described in subsection (a) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part

4698

LOCAL AND SPECIAL ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS, VOL. II

which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Ware County which is described in subsection (a) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. Said Act is further amended by repealing subsection (c) of Section 3.

SECTION 3. (a) Those members of the Board of Commissioners of Ware County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, and 4, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former commissioner districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act.

SECTION 4. The provisions of this Act necessary to conduct elections for the members of the Board of Commissioners of Ware County in 2022 shall become effective upon the approval of this Act by the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval. The remaining provisions of this Act shall become effective on January 1, 2023.

SECTION 5. All laws and parts of laws in conflict with this Act are repealed.

AN ACT

To amend an Act creating a new board of education of Grady County, approved March 5, 1968 (Ga. L. 1968, p. 2120), as amended, particularly by an Act approved March 13, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 4268), so as to change the description of the education districts; to provide for definitions and inclusions; to provide for continuation in office of current members; to provide for related matters; to provide for effective dates; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act creating a new board of education of Grady County, approved March 5, 1968 (Ga. L. 1968, p. 2120), as amended, particularly by an Act approved March 13, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 4268), is amended by revising subsection (b) of Section 2 as follows:
"(b)(1) For purposes of electing members of the board of education, the Grady County School District is divided into five education districts. One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. The five education districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Grady Co. Plan Name: GradyCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'. (2) For the purposes of such plan:
(A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; (C) Any part of the Grady County School District which is not included in any district described in paragraph (1) of this subsection shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and

GEORGIA LAWS 2022 SESSION

4727

(D) Any part of the Grady County School District which is described in paragraph (1) of this subsection as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. Said Act is further amended by revising subsection (b) of Section 2B as follows:
"(b) Education Districts 1 through 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Education Districts 1 through 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former education districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under Section 2 of this Act."

SECTION 3. Those members of the Board of Education of Grady County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors.

SECTION 4. The provisions of this Act necessary to conduct elections for the members of the Board of Education of Grady County in 2022 shall become effective upon the approval of this Act by the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval. The remaining provisions of this Act shall become effective on January 1, 2023.

SECTION 5. All laws and parts of laws in conflict with this Act are repealed.

shall be elected at large from the entire Schley County School District and such position shall be designated as Education District 5. (2) For the purposes of such plan:
(A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (2) Any part of the Schley County School District which is not included in any district described in paragraph (1) of this subsection shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of the Schley County School District which is described in paragraph (1) of this subsection as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. (a) Those members of the Board of Education of Schley County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Education Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Education Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former education districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act.

To amend an Act changing the composition and method of election of the Board of Education of Appling County, approved February 2, 1988 (Ga. L. 1988, p. 3529), as amended, so as to change the description of the education districts; to provide for definitions and inclusions; to provide for compensation of the board; to provide for the continuation in office of current members; to provide for related matters; to provide for effective dates; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

LOCAL AND SPECIAL ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS, VOL. II

SECTION 1. An Act changing the composition and method of election of the Board of Education of Appling County, approved February 2, 1988 (Ga. L. 1988, p. 3529), as amended, is amended by revising subsections (b) and (c) of Section 2 as follows:
"(b) For purposes of electing members of the board of education, the Appling County School District is divided into five education districts. One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. Each member of the board shall be a resident of the education district he or she represents; and if any member removes his or her residence from such education district, then his or her office shall be vacated. The five education districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Appling Co. Plan Name: ApplingCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(c)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of the Appling County School District which is not included in any district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of the Appling County School District which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. Said Act is further amended by revising Section 4 as follows:

"SECTION 4. Members of the board of education and the chairperson shall receive a per diem of $500.00 for each day of attendance at meetings of the board and while meeting and traveling within or outside the state as a member of a committee of the board on official business, plus

GEORGIA LAWS 2022 SESSION

reimbursement for actual expenses necessarily incurred in connection therewith. The accounts for such service and expenses shall be submitted for approval to the school superintendent. The compensation of the members and chairperson of the board of education shall be paid only from the local tax funds available to the board of education."

SECTION 3. (a) Those members of the Board of Education of Appling County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Education Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Education Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former education districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act.

SECTION 4. Section 2 and the provisions of this Act necessary to conduct elections for the members of the Board of Education of Appling County in 2022 shall become effective upon the approval of this Act by the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval. The remaining provisions of this Act shall become effective on January 1, 2023.

SECTION 5. All laws and parts of laws in conflict with this Act are repealed.

AN ACT

To amend an Act creating the Board of Commissioners of Burke County, approved August 21, 1911 (Ga. L. 1911, p. 390), as amended, particularly by an Act approved March 5, 2012 (Ga.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act creating the Board of Commissioners of Burke County, approved August 21, 1911 (Ga. L. 1911, p. 390), as amended, particularly by an Act approved March 5, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 4127), is amended by revising subsections (b) and (c) of Section 1 and adding new subsections as follows:
"(b) For purposes of electing members of the board of commissioners, Burke County is divided into five commissioner districts. One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. The five commissioner districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Burke Co. Plan Name: BurkeCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'. (c) For the purposes of such plan:
(1) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (2) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.

(e) Any part of Burke County which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district.

AN ACT

To amend an Act creating a board of commissioners of Dougherty County, approved March 4, 1941 (Ga. L. 1941, p. 834), as amended, so as to change the description of the commission districts; to provide for definitions and inclusions; to provide for continuation in office of certain current board members; to provide for effective dates; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act creating a board of commissioners of Dougherty County, approved March 4, 1941 (Ga. L. 1941, p. 834), as amended, is amended by deleting subsection (c) of Section 1 and inserting in lieu thereof the following:
"(c) For purposes of electing members of the board of commissioners, other than the chairperson, Dougherty County is divided into six commission districts. One member of the board shall be elected from each such district. The six commission districts shall be and correspond to those six numbered districts established pursuant to the final order entered on April 23, 2004, in Knighton v. Dougherty County, Case Number 1:02-CV-130-2(WLS), United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, but as modified by the descriptions in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Dougherty Co.

GEORGIA LAWS 2022 SESSION

(d)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of Dougherty County which is not included in any district described in subsection (c) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Dougherty County which is described in subsection (c) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. (a) Those members of the Board of Commissioners of Dougherty County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors.

BAKER COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS; DISTRICTS.

Act No. 505 (House Bill No. 1202).

AN ACT

To amend an Act creating the board of commissioners of Baker County, approved August 8, 1917 (Ga. L. 1917, p. 306), as amended, so as to change the description of the commissioner districts; to provide for definitions and inclusions; to provide for the continuation in office of current members; to provide for related matters; to provide for effective dates; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

SECTION 1. An Act creating the board of commissioners of Baker County, approved August 8, 1917 (Ga .L. 1917, p. 306), as amended, is amended by revising Section 4 as follows:

"SECTION 4. (a) The members of said board of commissioners shall be elected from the districts provided for in subsection (b) of this section. One commissioner shall be elected from each district but shall be elected by the voters of the entire county. The candidate from each district receiving the highest number of votes in the entire county shall be elected as the commissioner from such district. The commissioners so elected shall hold office for four years and until his successor is elected and qualified. They shall be elected at the same time other county officers are elected. (b) For the purpose of electing members of the board of commissioners, Baker County is divided into five districts. Such districts shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Baker Co. Plan Name: BakerCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(c)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and

(B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (2) Any part of Baker County which is not included in any district described in subsection (b) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Baker County which is described in subsection (b) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (d) Vacancies on the board of commissioners shall be filled as provided by general law."

SECTION 2. (a) Those members of the Board of Commissioners of Baker County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors.

The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (ii) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(B) Any part of Spalding County which is not included in any district described in paragraph (1) of subsection (c) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (C) Any part of Spalding County which is described in paragraph (1) of subsection (c) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district.

SECTION 1. An Act establishing the Griffin-Spalding County School System Board of Education, approved February 25, 1953 (Ga. L. 1953, Jan.-Feb. Sess., p. 2563), as amended, particularly by a local constitutional amendment (Ga. L. 1982, p. 2680) which was continued in force and effect as a part of the Constitution of the State of Georgia by an Act approved February 18, 1987 (Ga. L. 1987, p. 3545), by an Act approved March 7, 2002 (Ga. L. 2002, p. 3566), and by an Act approved September 21, 2011 (Ga. L. 2011, Ex. Sess., p. 478), is amended by revising Sections 2 and 3 as follows:

"SECTION 2. (a) The administration of the Griffin-Spalding County School System shall be vested in a board to be known and designated as the 'Griffin-Spalding County Board of Education.' Said board shall consist of five members, each of whom shall be a person of good moral character and at least 25 years of age at the time of assuming office as a member of said board. Each of the five education districts hereinafter created and described shall be represented by one member of such board who shall have been a resident of the district he or she represents for at least six months prior to the date of his or her election or appointment to said board. Such members shall be elected in a nonpartisan general election held at the time of the general primary in each even-numbered year.
(b)(1) For the purpose of electing members of the board of education, the Griffin-Spalding County School District shall be divided into five education districts. Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 shall be and correspond to those five numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Spalding Co. Plan Name: SpaldingCCSB-2022 Plan Type: Local'. (2) For the purposes of such plan:
(A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of the Griffin-Spalding County School District which is not included in any district described in paragraph (1) of this subsection shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (4) Any part of the Griffin-Spalding County School District which is described in paragraph (1) of this subsection as being included in a particular district shall

4844

LOCAL AND SPECIAL ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS, VOL. II

nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.

SECTION 3. (a) Those members of the Griffin-Spalding County Board of Education who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former districts shall be deemed to be serving from and representing their respective districts as newly described under this Act."

SECTION 2. The election superintendent of Spalding County shall call and conduct an election as provided in this section for the purpose of submitting this Act to the electors of Spalding County for approval or rejection. The election superintendent shall conduct that election on the date of the November, 2022, general election and shall issue the call and conduct that election as provided by general law. The election superintendent shall cause the date and purpose of the election to be published once a week for two weeks immediately preceding the date thereof in the official organ of Spalding County. The ballot shall have written or printed thereon the words:
"( ) YES Shall the Griffin-Spalding County Board of Education be permitted to ( ) NO change the description of the education districts in accordance with the
report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 so as to comply with the federal law?"
All persons desiring to vote for approval of the Act shall vote "Yes," and all persons desiring to vote for rejection of the Act shall vote "No." If more than one-half of the votes cast on such question are for approval of the Act, then Section 1 of this Act shall become of full force and effect on January 1, 2023. If the Act is not so approved or if the election is not conducted as provided in this section, then Section 1 of this Act shall not become effective, and this Act shall be automatically repealed on the first day of January immediately following that election date. The expense of such election shall be borne by Spalding County. It shall be the election superintendent's duty to certify the result thereof to the Secretary of State.

SECTION 3. The provisions of this Act necessary for the referendum provided for in Section 2 of this Act shall become effective upon the approval of this Act by the Governor or upon its becoming law without such approval. The remaining provisions of this Act shall become effective on January 1, 2023, unless otherwise repealed in accordance with the provisions of Section 2 of this Act.

SECTION 4. All laws and parts of laws in conflict with this Act are repealed.

4851

SECTION 1. An Act creating the Board of Commissioners of Paulding County, approved April 17, 1975 (Ga. L. 1975, p. 2916), as amended, particularly by an Act approved March 20, 2012 (Ga. L. 2012, p. 4451), is amended by revising subsections (a) and (b) of Section 3 as follows:
"(a) The county shall be divided into four commissioner districts which shall correspond to those four numbered districts described in Appendix A attached to and made a part of this Act and further identified as 'User: Paulding CC Plan Name: PauldingCC-2022 Plan Type: Local'.
(b)(1) For the purposes of such plan: (A) The term 'VTD' shall mean and describe the same geographical boundaries as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. The separate numeric designations in a district description which are underneath a VTD heading shall mean and describe individual Blocks within a VTD as provided in the report of the Bureau of the Census for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia; and (B) Except as otherwise provided in the description of any district, whenever the description of any district refers to a named city, it shall mean the geographical boundaries of that city as shown on the census maps for the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia.
(2) Any part of Paulding County which is not included in any district described in subsection (a) of this section shall be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia. (3) Any part of Paulding County which is described in subsection (a) of this section as being included in a particular district shall nevertheless not be included within such district if such part is not contiguous to such district. Such noncontiguous part shall instead be included within that district contiguous to such part which contains the least population according to the United States decennial census of 2020 for the State of Georgia."

SECTION 2. (a) Those members of the Board of Commissioners of Paulding County who are serving as such on the effective date of this Act and any person selected to fill a vacancy in any such office shall continue to serve as such members until the regular expiration of their respective terms of office and upon the election and qualification of their respective successors. (b) Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, and 4, as they exist immediately prior to the effective date of this Act, shall continue to be designated as Commissioner Districts 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively, but as newly described under this Act, and on and after the effective date of this Act, such members of the board serving from those former commissioner districts shall be

referendum election provided for by Section 8.10 of this charter if this Act is approved at such referendum election. (c) Except as provided in Section 8.10 of this charter, the remaining provisions of this Act shall become of full force and effect for all purposes at 12:00 Midnight on January 1, 2023, except that the initial councilmembers shall take office immediately following their election and by action of a quorum may prior to 12:00 Midnight on January 1, 2023, meet and take actions binding on the city. (d) A period of time will be needed for an orderly transition of various government functions from Cobb County to the City of Lost Mountain.

During such transition period, all provisions of this charter shall be effective as law, but not all provisions of this charter shall be implemented.

During the transition period, the city shall remain within the Cobb County special services district, but shall be removed from such district at the conclusion of such period. Beginning July 1, 2023, the City of Lost Mountain shall collect taxes, fees, assessments, fines and forfeitures, and other moneys within the territorial limits of the city in the same manner as authorized immediately prior to the effective date of this section; provided, however, that upon at least 60 days' prior written notice to Cobb County by the City of Lost Mountain, the authority to collect any tax, fee, assessment, fine or forfeiture, or other moneys shall remain with Cobb County after July 1, 2023, until such time as Cobb County receives subsequent notice from the City of Lost Mountain that such authority shall be transferred to the City of Lost Mountain.

During the transition period, all ordinances of Cobb County shall remain applicable within the territorial limits of the city and the appropriate court or courts of Cobb County shall retain jurisdiction to enforce such ordinances. However, by mutual agreement and concurrent resolutions and ordinances if needed Cobb County and the City of Lost Mountain may during the transition period transfer all or part of such regulatory authority and the appropriate court jurisdiction to the City of Lost Mountain. Any transfer of jurisdiction to the City of Lost Mountain during or at the end of the transition period shall not in and of itself abate any judicial proceeding pending in Cobb County or the pending prosecution of any violation of any ordinance of Cobb County. (h) During the transition period, the governing authority of the City of Lost Mountain may at any time, without the necessity of any agreement by Cobb County, commence to exercise its planning and zoning powers; provided, however, that the city shall give the county notice of the date on which the city will assume the exercise of such powers. Upon the governing authority of the City of Lost Mountain commencing to exercise its planning and zoning powers, the Municipal Court of the City of Lost Mountain shall immediately have jurisdiction to enforce the planning and zoning ordinances of the city. Effective upon the certification of the results of the referendum election provided for by Section 8.10 of this charter, Cobb County shall not alter, amend, change, modify, or rezone the zoning or land use classification of, or issue any special use permit for, any property located within the territory of the City of Lost Mountain.

The provisions of this subsection shall control over any conflicting provisions of any other subsection of this section. (i) Effective upon the termination of the transition period, subsections (b) through (h) of this section shall cease to apply except for the last sentence of subsection (g) which shall remain effective.

SECTION 8.12. Directory nature of dates.

It is the intention of the General Assembly that this Act be construed as directory rather than mandatory with respect to any date prescribed in this Act. If it is necessary to delay any action called for in this Act for providential cause or any other reason, it is the intention of the General Assembly that the action be delayed rather than abandoned.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing it is specifically provided that:
(1) If it is not possible to hold the referendum election provided for in Section 8.10 of this charter on the date specified in that section, then such referendum shall be held as soon thereafter as is reasonably practicable; and (2) If it is not possible to hold the first election provided for in Section 8.13 of this charter on the date specified in that section, then there shall be a special election for the initial members of the governing authority to be held as soon thereafter as is reasonably practicable, and the commencement of the initial terms of office shall be delayed accordingly.

SECTION 8.13. Special election.

(a) The first election for councilmembers shall be a special election held on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, 2022. At such election, the first councilmembers shall be elected to serve for the initial terms of office specified in subsections (b) and (c) of this section.
