School Board to Appeal JWSC Decision

The Glynn County Board of Education voted unanimously last night to appeal Judge Stephen Kelley’s decision ordering the BOE to pay the Brunswick Glynn Joint Water and Sewer Commission $140,000 in debt service fees and late fees. Board Chair Jerry Mancil said they were appealing the decision to protect tax payer dollars. Board attorney Andrew Lakin said there has been a change in the JWSC’s circumstances since they now get SPLOST dollars and that change is the basis for the appeal. The board also approved a student drug testing policy which will be effective starting with the 2018-2019 school year. Only those students in extra-curricular activities will be in the drug testing pool.
