I was very happy to read in a recent issue of your paper that our county commissioners are considering going green with the new county administrative complex being built in south Bryan County. Even though the upfront costs are somewhat higher, we must consider future payoffs (i.e. lower energy and water costs) and urge our commissioners to choose the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. Our county commissioners have a wonderful opportunity to set an example for other builders and lead the way by embracing this concept.
Let’s do it!
