Mel Baxter, Interim Executive Director of the Brunswick-Glynn County Development Authority, and Jeff Culwell, Chairman of the Airport Commission, briefed the Board on the expansion project underway at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport (BQK). The Airport Commission and Development Authority have requested the Board of Commissioners support a full build out of the North Apron Ramp project at the airport.

Chairman Strickland said this was requested because the group supporting the incorporation of St. Simons felt it needed additional representation. Therefore, at the request of some commissioners, the Board of Elections created and distributed new commission district maps for consideration.

The commissioners requested the Board of Elections provide other redistricting alternatives for consideration.
