This has been a very momentous week of negotiating between Floyd County and the City of Rome that has ended up with an agreement for both LOST tax revenue and swapping properties in Rome’s downtown.

We are so lucky to have as our program this week, Floyd County Manager Jamie McCord who has been in the center of the action for the past few months. Exchangites will have the opportunity to learn more about this and other things effecting our county first hand on Friday.

Jamie is a native of Centre, Alabama but grew up in the Silver Creek Community and has been a resident of Floyd County since 1975. Jamie has over 30 years of experience in engineering, transportation, public works, and management, previously serving as Technical Services Manager for Georgia DOT and Public Works Director for the City of Rome.

He has a degree in Civil Engineering from Southern Poly and a Master of Business Administration from Berry College. Jamie has been married to his wife Leslie for 26 years and they have 2 children, Meg and Matt. Meg teaches 1st Grade at Elm Street Elementary and Matt is a freshman at Georgia Highlands College.
