Reading and Adoption 2/13/95

Resolution No. #R-06-96

A RESOLUTION OPPOSING SB 612 AND SB 634



WHEREAS, Senators Boshears and Johnson introduced SB 612 which would

require the establishment of a zoning advisory board, separate and apart from the governing body's planning commission, for the coastal counties only; and

WHEREAS, Senator Boshears introduced SB 634 which redefines the

measurement criteria to determine the distance from a municipal corporation's boundaries; and



WHEREAS, neither the Glynn County Board of Commissioners or the City of

Brunswick were previously consulted on these measures; and



WHEREAS, both bodies consider this legislation an unneeded state mandate;



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Glynn County Board of

Commissioners, acting in its capacity as the governing authority of Glynn County, that it strongly opposes SB 612 and SB 634 because they:



1. Provide an unneeded, additional state mandated regulatory review that can be more effectively handled through the local comprehensive plan.



2. Are contrary to the policy positions of both the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia and the Georgia Municipal Association which seek to reduce redundant governing bodies.



3. Potentially result in a reduction of limited revenues without allowing full review and participation by existing political subdivisions.



4. Encourage a process that has economic hardship to the citizens of the coastal counties.



5. Impose a State burden on all coastal counties to attempt to resolve a local issue.



BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that at this meeting the City of Brunswick

commission, through a consensus vote, strongly supports the position of the Board of Commissioners.
