Discussion and consideration of voting on the following:

 

1.         Redistricting of commission districts

 

Senator William Ligon, Representative Alex Atwood, and Representative Jeff Jones were in attendance to discuss redistricting. After the 2010 census, the voting districts were shifted. District 2 became St. Simons, Sea, and Jekyll Islands. District 3 moved off of St. Simons. Commissioner Provenzano said some residents on St. Simons Island wanted more representation on the Board of Commissioners and were asking for the districts to shift again so that another district commissioner could represent St. Simons. Several commissioners felt that the residents of St. Simons were represented by one district commissioner and two at-large commissioners. It was mentioned that the citizens on St. Simons have the same number of representatives on the commission as all other citizens have.

Representative Atwood provided an overview of the steps necessary if the Board of Commissioners chose to move forward with redistricting.

It was the consensus of the Board to table this item to give the community an opportunity to weigh in on the idea.

 

2.         Animal Control Building design

 

Police Chief Matt Doering and James Kent, architect, presented the design of the proposed renovations to the facility. Renovations included alterations to the existing center building, adding a canine building, and a storage building. The estimated cost totaled $1.2 million. Paying for the whole project with an upcoming SPLOST versus separating the renovations into three projects was discussed, but no final decisions on funding were made. It was the consensus of the Board to allow staff to get bids on the project to see how much it may cost.

 

3.         Land Disturbance Activity (LDA) ordinance amendment

 

The draft ordinance was presented by Community Development Director David Hainley. It was the consensus of the Board to place the amendment on an upcoming agenda for consideration.

 

 

Mr. Hainley asked that a contingency budget and change order policy be established for the Canal Road/Canal Crossing project. It was the consensus of the Board to place this item on the Board’s next regular meeting agenda for consideration.

 

EXECUTIVE SESSION/POST EXECUTIVE SESSION ACTION

 

The Board did not hold an executive session during this meeting.

 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned.
