Mayor Wants Changes to JWSC

According to a recent news report, Brunswick Mayor Cornell Harvey believes that Brunswick and Glynn County should either take back control of the Brunswick-Glynn Joint Water and Sewer Commission or break away altogether and let the utility stand and operate on its own. When it was formed the JWSC consisted of two city commissioners, two county commissioners and a fifth non-elected member from the public they appointed. In 2012 the Georgia General Assembly changed the JWSC’s structure to it’s current makeup of one city and one county commission, two elected members and three Grand Jury appointments. While some members of the JWSC see Harvey’s point, most disagree they need to make any such changes to the utility.
