On the ballot Tuesday for Hall County is an issue some say will save the county money. While others say eliminating the weed board will create more of a nuisance than expected.

At the Hall County Weed Control Office, a recent meeting could be one of the last for the several member board.

"I'd like to see us stay as a board so we can watch over the county," said Hall County Weed Board Chairman Francis Hannon.

Several months ago the Hall County Board of Supervisors decided to put the measure on the ballot.

Supervisors say it would save the County about $3,000 which is paid as a $50 monthly stipend for the five members plus their mileage.

A "no" vote on the issue will tell the county the weed board will not be dissolved, and the five member board will keep its job.

The weed board has been around since 1966.
