The Appling County Board of Commissioners held their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, December 6 at the Appling County Courthouse Annex beginning at 5:30 p.m. During the meeting Alex Johnson and Sydney Wildes shared information about the need of a change to the current Solid Waste Plan in order to be able to install another waste management plant in Appling County. The current plan only allows for one such plant. The new plant is to be built between Highway 121 and Highway 15 outside of Surrency. The plant is projected to bring 20 jobs to the community when opened and around 150 to 200 jobs by the third to fifth year. The plant would have a small landfill and would recycle 60 to 70 percent of waste collected. No action was taken due to all members of the commission not being present at the meeting.
