Commission approves payoffs
The Glynn County Commission approved a number of expenditures and appointments during its regular meeting Thursday at the old county courthouse.

The commission approved a contract between the county and the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council for a $561,000 grant, which was awarded to the Brunswick Judicial Circuit Drug Court.

It also reappointed Patti Fort and James Johnson to the Coastal Workforce Investment Board and named members to the new Marshes of Glynn Libraries Board, all of whom currently serve on the Glynn County Libraries Board of Trustees. They are: Matthew Permar, Ben Bryson, Sandy Turbidy, Joan Campbell, Jeff Fluck, Mary Ann Nichols, Gloria Burns, Paul Fisher and Robert Doud-Williams.

The name of the library board changes July 1, when Glynn County leaves the Three Rivers Regional Library System and becomes its own, single-county library system with branches in downtown Brunswick and on St. Simons Island.

Grant Buckley was named to the Coastal Regional Commission's Aging Services Advisory Council and former Glynn County Commissioner Howard Lynn was named to serve on the Gateway Behavioral Health Services Board. Buckley was appointed to fill the one year left on the Gateway board in the unexpired term of former county commissioner Cap Fendig.

The commission also approved a $100,000 Glynn County Economic Development Revolving Loan for Scojet, an engineering and manufacturing firm, and a $80,000 loan for Triangle-T Corp. The aviation parts companies applied for the loans to help fill orders and buy equipment.

Commissioners also approved the purchase of 2013 New Holland tractors from Dixon New Holland, Blackshear, for a total of $86,400 and the purchase of a 2013 rotary mower and one finish mower from Mason Tractor Co., McDonough, for just over $8,000.
