Commissioner Gunn read a letter from St. Simons, Residents United for Planning and Action requesting that Airport Masterplan Update not be considered until more public hearings were held.

 



Airport Manager Gary Moore stated the mainland and island airport plan should be incorporated into Comprehensive Masterplan so the entire plan can be reviewed as part of public hearings.  Mr. Moore thought there should not be a review of Comprehensive Plan that excludes Glynco and McKinnon Airport Plan.

 

Commissioner Gunn felt the Board should not incorporate something (airport masterplan) that Board of Commissioners has not had a chance to study.

 

Ray Snow, Chairman‑Airport Commission stated Airport Masterplan is not put in stone and they just want to incorporate Airport Plan into the Comprehensive Masterplan for Glynn County.  Mr. Snow felt these items presently being discussed will come up when Public Hearings are held on Glynn County's Comprehensive Masterplan and encouraged this Board to incorporate Airport Plan into the Masterplan so Airport Commission can get on to their business of running airport.

 

Motion by Commissioner Gunn to defer this item until two public hearings (one at Casino, one at Oglethorpe School) are held on St. Simons Island, second by Commissioner Boyne.  (4 for ‑ 3 opposed)

 

Citizen with non‑flying airplane said he and others would like to see more aviation use at airport as opposed to just general commercial use.

 

Lee Noel stated he felt the Airport Plan was a responsible comprehensive piece of work, but was opposed to adoption of it because airports as vital parts of infrastructure of this County should be vital parts of growth strategy; therefore something this significant should be viewed by all citizens of Glynn County in an open forum.

 

Chairman Miller asked Mr. Moore if there was motel/hotel involvement in any Airport plans.

 

Airport Manager Gary Moore said there was no property leased for a motel, nor did the Airport Commission intend to lease property for a motel.  Mr. Moore said they are going before Planning Commission on November 1st for an access road to 15 acres of airport road but will not lease property for any purpose on that corner until there's approved access to that property.

 

Commissioner Gunn read part of letter from Glenn Lewis about a proposed zoning for a motel on part of a non‑aviation segment of McKinnon Airport.

 


Airport Manager Gary Moore said what Commissioner Gunn read was an extract provided to Vice Chairman in advance of an agenda considered by Airport Commission, and no action was taken on this letter.

 

Motion by Commissioner Hardman to include Glynco and Malcolm McKinnon Plan into Glynn County Comprehensive Masterplan, second Commissioner Lynn.  (4 for ‑ 3 opposed)  Motion carried.

 

Planning Official Dan Reuter stated to Commissioner Gunn that immediate public hearings could still be held on St. Simons Island.

DELEGATIONS

 

14.   Harold Johnson to discuss Brady Bill/Unconstitutional/Unfunded Mandates.  (Sponsored by Commissioner Boyne)

 

Mr. Johnson discussed two separate federal court orders from Arizona and Montana concerning the Brady Bill unconstitutional as an example of unfunded federal mandates which violates the Tenth Amendment.

 

County Attorney Gary Moore stated these two cases are under appeal.  Mr. Moore said if County began a lawsuit against the Federal government on basis of these two cases in order to free ourselves from ADA, FLSA or other pieces of Federal legislation that apply to County, just like they apply to other entities, he does not believe that action would be successful.

 

Mr. Moore said the impact of Brady Bill is that County receives $15 fee per request to check records; records are checked by Sheriff Department employees and $15 is put in


County account, so the financial impact of Brady Bill is positive.  Mr. Moore said basically the compulsion is on the part of Sheriff's Department; as far as this Board is concerned he did not think Brady Bill has any fiscal impact.

 

Sheriff Wayne Bennett said he agreed with County Attorney and until the Supreme Court rules on this he saw no need for action for now.

 

Commissioner Boyne felt this bill was just tip of iceberg, the iceberg being Federal mandates.  Commissioner Boyne thought that Federal mandates, not necessarily ADA, etc. ‑ but the totality of mandates is costing local governments and is a tremendous burden.

 

Motion by Commissioner Boyne requesting County Attorney to prepare litigation to prevent Federal government from mandating local governments for any future mandates, second by Commissioner Lynn.

 

County Attorney stated this litigation could run into thousands of hours and to be candid the chances of success is absolutely zero.

 

Commissioner Gunn applauded Commissioner Boyne's effort but wondered what the Federal government could do to County.

 

County Attorney said the only thing Federal government could do would be to bring a Rule 11 Sanction against County for a frivolous lawsuit, and there is no legal precedent for this.

 

Motion by Commissioner Boyne requesting staff to communicate with ACCG, NACo and Georgia Municipal Association to come together as local government to restrict Federal mandates, seconded by Commissioner Lynn.  Unanimously adopted.

 

 

15.   Request to take this item off Agenda.

 

 

16.   Consider exception to the width requirement and reduction of the fee on request by Norwich Baptist Church to move portable classroom from Camden County.

 

Building Official Vernon Lewis recommended exception to width requirement and reduction of fee to $300 on this request.

 

Motion by Commissioner Lynn to approve Building Official's recommendation, second Commissioner Hardman.  Unanimously adopted.

 

 


17.   Discuss plans for staff to take over management of Farmer's Market on St. Simons Island beginning January 1995.

18.   Discuss appointments to the Hospital Authority from outside Glynn County.

 

Chairman Miller motioned to defer.

Motion to approve request by Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Hardman.  Unanimously adopted.


 


Commissioner Miller:

 

     Building Official Vernon Lewis recommended not using upstairs meeting room after January 26, 1994 due to County's compliance with American Disabilities Act.  Chairman Miller suggested starting December meeting downstairs to get the public used to change.

 

 

Commissioner Gunn:

 

     Commissioner Gunn thanked Georgia Forestry Commission for their help with area tree problems.

 

Frank Sorrells of Georgia Forestry Commission reported on two trees located on Fifth Avenue and Oak Street.  Mr. Sorrells said the trees were okay and he did not recommend removing trees.

 

Mr. Sorrells said regarding two oak trees in Neptune Park, soil analysis can be done by Cooperative Extension Service; also permission will be needed to go under the trees to get chemical analysis.  Test for soil analysis will be $80 to $100 and SSI Chamber of Commerce should fund this.  It was also suggested that vehicle traffic be suspended around this tree.

 

Motion by Commissioner Gunn to have soil sample taken and request St. Simons Chamber of Commerce pick up cost, have Ordinance saying no vehicle traffic under trees and no herbicides used in the park, second Commissioner Lyde.  Unanimously adopted.

County Engineer Ray Richard said he did not disagree with Ms. Young relative to safety aspect.  Mr. Richard did not think the existing road as planned to be paved is unsafe, but there's no question if the trees are removed and a road is placed in the center it would be safer and there would be better sight distance.

 

Ken Enney of Water & Sewer Commission said they presently have an Attorney looking into problems with water and sewer hook‑ups on Oak Street due to a commitment an employee made


with resident on Oak Street that has cost water and sewer fund.  Mr. Enney said if Oak Street is paved it will cost alot more money because the newly paved will have to be torn up for water and sewer hook‑ups.

 

Mr. Richard said when County had pre‑construction conference, Water & Sewer was represented by Tim Ransom and Mr. Ransom advised them that sewer was about to be put in from Palmetto on Fifth Street to Oak Street.  Ray Richard said Mr. Ransom asked for County Engineer's schedule and advised that sewer work would be done ahead of paving.

 

Commissioner Gunn requested the Board look into why the Tree Board is not meeting regularly.

 

Commissioner Hardman motioned that County endeavor to pave Oak Street and Fifth Avenue in safest manner possible, which means center of roadway (exact location determined by County Engineer) and refer to Tree Board on Monday 10‑25‑94; also that Water and Sewer get with County Engineer to delay paving as long as they reasonably can; second by Commissioner Lynn.  Unanimously adopted.

 

County Attorney Moore suggested amending the Tree Board Ordinance to give Board authority to order removal of trees in situation where the Board finds public interest to be best served by an immediate decision to do so.

 

Commissioner Hardman agreed with Commissioner Gunn that trees are a bigger issue on St. Simons than other districts.

 

Chairman Miller requested that proposed St. Simons Island Tree Board be put on next Work Session agenda.

 

 

Commissioner Miller:

 

     Chairman Miller asked Administrator Gilmour the status of closing out Putt‑Putt at Neptune Park.

 

Administrator Gilmour said Recreation staff has completed a close‑out of books and operations, and are preparing report to go to Recreation Board for final recommendation to Board of Commissioners.

 

     Casino Recreation Room ‑ Administrator Gilmour said he spoke to Ms. Williams and she indicated the decision to restrict the hours was based on non‑use.  Mr. Gilmour directed Ms. Williams to take this issue to Recreation Board for recommendation to Board of Commissioners.
