Lula Mayor Milton Turner
Lula’s mayor didn’t pull punches when it came to the topic Monday night of a merger of Hall County governments. “Hall County is just going to spend a lot of taxpayer dollars to do another one of those studies and shelve it,” Milton Turner said. Calls to merge the Hall County and Gainesville governments have been echoing for years, with voters across Hall overwhelmingly passing a ballot referendum in March 1992 that approved a study of how merging governments and services might benefit taxpayers.
