County to hear Atlantic Waste request, presentation
Placeholder Image

An ordinance amendment request from Atlantic Waste Services makes it way to the Bryan County Board of Commissioners this week during the board’s regular meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Dixie Harn Community Center in Pembroke.

The meeting has been moved from its regular location at the county courthouse to accommodate the crowd expected for a presentation from Burke Wall of Atlantic Waste Services as well as the first reading of the ordinance amendment.

Atlantic Waste, which is planning a solid waste landfill on a 268-acre tract in the Black Creek community of North Bryan, is requesting the ordinance change to allow landfills to be built on county-maintained roads and reduce the setback between a landfill and a water source from 1,000 feet to 500 feet.

The Bryan County Planning and Zoning Commission voted last week not to recommend that the request be approved, and county commissioners are expected to vote on the second and final reading of the request at their December meeting.

Other items on the agenda include: the fiscal 2012 budget; a ambulance destroyed by fire; a transition plan update; and two recommendations from the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia risk management.
