Director of the Chestatee-Chattahoochee Resource Conservation and Development Council Frank Riley relayed updates on current projects to members of the Mountain Movers and Shakers at their weekly meeting on Friday, Aug. 12, at Mary’s Southern Grill. According to Riley, Chest-Chatt RC&D was created in 1962 as a sector of the Agriculture Act as a means to assist members of the community in projects geared toward conservation of natural resources, the well-being of the environment and overall standard of living for residents. The Chest-Chatt RC&D covers 13 counties over the state of Georgia.
