Bryan County can continue to enforce its interim development ordinance and collect impact fees, a judge has ruled, but a lawsuit seeking to have the measures overturned can move forward. 

Atlantic Judicial Circuit Superior Court Senior Judge Robert Russell’s rulings were filed Wednesday at the Bryan County Courthouse in Pembroke. 

The Home Builders Association of Greater Savannah is suing the county over its interim development ordinance and impact fees, and had asked Russell to stop the county from collecting the fees and enforcing its ordinance until the suit is decided. 

Russell denied the county’s motion to dismiss the HBA’s suit. He also ordered lawyers from both sides to get together on a trial date.
