County Denies Public Transport, Names Public Works Building

In response to a letter from the Coastal Regional Commission asking if the county has any interest in a local Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, the Glynn County Commission voted unanimously last night to reject the idea of the tax. Commissioner Mike Browning said it was the state’s way of asking the counties to fund transportation costs. Commissioner Mark Stambaugh agreed saying the state has already taken a portion of Glynn’s Local Option Sales Tax and this is just another move to take more of our money.The county Commission also voted unanimously last night to name the new Public Works Administration Building in honor of long time Public Works employee Edward Whittle. With about 40 years on the job, Whittle has been employed by Glynn County longer than any other employee.
