Property Line Adjustments 0 N. Johnston Hope everyone is doing well and staying busy. Wanted to get feedback from other surveyors about an issue I am sure we all deal with, since 2017. So a property owner wants to quit claim a strip of land in order to clear up an encroachment. I tell them that the survey will need to be reviewed by the applicable city/county before I can sign it. The client or attorney tells me they are not planning to submit the survey. I tell them my only option is to use certification (i) and put a note to the effect of "draft - issued for review...". That is kind of where I am at now. So then what will probably happen is that the attorney will write a deed based off of my "draft" of a survey. So then let's say hypothetically that they come back to me once the deed is recorded and ask me to sign the survey. Now I can technically use certification (iii) for a retracement, since I am following the current deeds of record. Does this scenario sound familiar to anyone? How do you handle situations like these?   Thanks

Video Presentation about Historic Savannah City Maps 1 Farris Cadle, Inc. Thanks, Farris. Very interesting video of Savannah’s history. It also took me to a website regarding the Coastal Jazz Society and a reference to a man who was my mentor in Jazz, Claude Rhea, pianist. Thanks, again. Bill Duggan

Small Business Paycheck Protection Program 0 T. Turk Hello Fellow SAMSOG Members: For those of you that have your own firms, I strongly encourage you to investigate the "SBA Paycheck Protection Program" aka "CARES" program being offered by the SBA/Federal Government.  This is in response to the Covid-19 crisis we are all experiencing.  This program will provide your company with a loan to be used for payroll and other expenses.  As long as you use the money specifically for certain uses, including payroll, the loan will be FORGIVABLE.   The Cobb Chamber of Commerce held a seminar on March 31, 2020 providing a great overview of this program.  I encourage you to investigate this if you own and operate a surveying firm!   Here is the link to the informative video (it is long - about 1.5 hours, but very informative).     Link to video... and - here is the link to apply for the loan: Be safe out there folks  ~ Trent Turk

Mid Atlantic Surveying Co, Inc. 1 M. Chastain searching I found that the CEO for Mid Atlantic was Kenneth W. Reese who had previously owned Kenco Engineering. He operated out of Smyrna. Maybe some of the Cobb surveyors know him. Hope that helps.

ALTA of apartment complex in 2 weeks? 2 N. Johnston I think it is probably doable. 4-5 days field work and 7-8 days drafting as long as you have a good crew that you can dedicate one or two crews and one or two drafters to that one job for that many days. With drones and field to finish it may even take less time.

Beware of Scammers 1 C. Branscom   If any of this was transacted through the U.S. Postal Service, you can file a mail fraud complaint.  See    On one or two occasions when I received something in the mail that appeared to be a scam, I took the mail to the local post office, explained the situation, and they said they would take it from there.  I don't know how aggressive the Postal Service is about such matters.  A person in my home county conducted a theft operation that incidentally used the mail service and in which she stole more than $700,000.  She was prosecuted in federal court on that basis and received 6 years in prison.
