MILLEDGEVILLE, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Milledgeville City Council plans to let their state representatives know they do not want a unified government.

They are sending two letters to legislators expressing their concerns.  One letter is from Acting-Mayor Jaenette Walden, the other is from the entire council. 

In her letter, Walden writes, "There has been little or no information provided to the public regarding the actual cost of implementing consolidation." 

Councilmen Walter Reynolds and Stephen Chambers voted against the resolutions to draft the letters during Tuesday night’s meeting. 

In a statement to 41NBC, Councilman Reynolds says, "It is inappropriate for this council to speak for the entire county and this is an issue that should be left to our citizens to decide." 

State lawmakers can still introduce the proposed unification legislation during this year’s general assembly.
