JWSC’s new Hampton water facility ahead of schedule
By Matthew J. Permar

When Steve Swan took over the Brunswick Glynn Joint Water and Sewer Commission about a year and a half ago there were some issues with the water system on St. Simons Island.
The Harrington water production facility, which was put back into use about two months ago, had been out of commission for almost three years.
The Mallery well and water production facility was down for a time last September, leaving only two elevated water towers, at Demere Rd. and Oglethorpe Pointe Elementary School, and the airport water facility to provide pressure for the whole island.
Swan and his staff evaluated the overall situation and decided, along with rehabilitating the Harrington facility, they needed to build a new ground level water storage tank and production facility on the north end of the island at Hampton Plantation.

What the State Court Clerk does
By Matthew J. Permar
Whenever there’s a major election there’s always those races on the ballot that many of us are just not sure about.
They make us wonder: For whom should I should vote? How is my day to day life impacted by the Commissioner of Agriculture? Has this incumbent judge done a good job or not?
The races that draw the most attention include senators, representatives, city and county commissioners, governors and presidents. The ones that don’t include judges, county surveyors, coroners and various clerks to name a few.
We have several ‘clerks’ locally. Some are employees like the county and city clerks. And some are elected, like the various court clerks.

The Glynn County Commission approved a two part agreement with Kiki Tree Pictures Inc., the movie company that is in town to shoot scenes for the upcoming Ben Afflect movie ‘Live By Night.’
Approved during the commission meeting on Thursday, October 1, the first part is a location agreement allowing Kiki Tree to use the empty lot at 1609 Newcastle St. for temporary set construction, including temporary billboards (and removal), staging of equipment and filming. It also allows them to place palm trees on the site. The site will be returned to its original state when filming is done at no cost to the county.
