If you are interested in visiting a third-world country, you no longer need to leave St. Simons Island thanks to our Glynn County Board of Commissioners.
They have approved a development against the recommendation of the Joint Water and Sewer Commission and the Island Planning Commission to the point that you can smell raw sewage at many locations on the island — Frederica Road and Sea Island Road, East Beach Causeway and Demere, and Frederica Road at North Harrington to name a few.
Will the commissioners wait until raw sewage is flowing in the streets before a moratorium is placed on development? If so, welcome to the Banana Republic of St. Simons Island.
