Projects ranging from renovations to the Bryan County Courthouse and the Pembroke Public Library to county recreation improvements should happen soon after a decision from the Bryan County Commissioners.
At the regularly scheduled April 10 meeting, the commissioners unanimously approved the use of about $525,000 in additional SPLOST dollars for various projects throughout the county.
County Administrator Phil Jones told commissioners several projects can be done with the extra money from SPLOST V cycle, which he said would likely end in May or June.
Jones said the most important project on the list would be the renovations to the county courthouse in Pembroke. Those improvements include the addition of a new courtroom and heating, ventilation and air conditioning system improvements, he said.
“This would be our number one project—it’s very important that we get that done,” Jones said. “I think this project is doable and we could finish it before the end of this year.”
Jones said he has a set of plans for the renovations and could probably get a bid for the project within the next 30 to 40 days.
Another project that can be completed with the left over SPLOST dollars, Jones said, is installation of a new sprinkler system and HVAC system in the Pembroke Public Library.
