Members of the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce made a special request at the Nov. 9 meeting of the Coweta County Board of Education. Chamber chairman-elect Vicki Kaiser (at podium) was joined by chamber administrators and board members in asking school board members to continue the Education SPLOST (1-cent sales tax) when it expires in June 2012. Kaiser praised the school system for its many innovations on behalf of students, teachers, parents and the community. Superintendent Blake Bass said the school system is currently working on a facilities plan for later submission. “We do need industry and business to continue to have this be a great place to work and live,” Bass said.
