Commissioners will also consider approval of an intergovernmental agreement with the Brunswick-Glynn Joint Water & Sewer Commission for the L Street project.

The long-awaited improvements will address an area of the city with a history of flooding during heavy rains.

The road, which runs east-west between U.S. 341 and the F.J.Torras Causeway, is a heavily traveled east-west corridor used by motorists traveling between Brunswick and St. Simons Island.

The work will include increasing the size and number of storm drain inlets to increase its capacity to keep the roadway clear during storms.

The targeted area sees more than a foot of rain accumulate after a heavy rain, creating hazardous driving conditions and damage to the pavement.

Elected officials will also consider approval of a Historic Stabilization Loan and approval of previous meeting minutes and financial reports as of Nov. 30, 2018.

A update of Downtown Development Authority and Main Street will open the meeting.

Mathew Hill, executive director of the authority, will make a presentation to explain the organization’s activities for the past year.

Commissioners will also make one appointment to the Tree Board and one appointment to the Urban Redevelopment Agency.

The city commission will meet at 6 p.m. on Jan. 16 at Old City Hall, located at 1229 Newcastle St. in Brunswick.
