Columbia County Commission resolution to say boo to GRU

Posted: August 14, 2012 - 9:43am  |  Updated: August 19, 2012 - 12:00am

The Columbia County Commission doesn’t like the name “Georgia Regents University” either.

Commissioner Charles Allen proposed at this past week’s Management and Financial Services meeting that a debate item be added to the agenda of the Tuesday Columbia County Commission meeting, adopting a resolution to ask the University System of Georgia Board of Regents to reconsider the name chosen for the merged Georgia Health Sciences University and Augusta State University. Allen’s measure passed unanimously.

The Columbia County Commission is one of many voices in an increasingly crowded chorus of discontent over the name.

“I think it’s important they understand where we are at on this,” Allen said.

The proposed resolution will go before the full Columbia County Commission on Tuesday.
