The public meeting will be held on November 8, 2012 at 10:00 A.M. in the Senior Citizens Center on Sapelo Island.  Interested persons are encouraged to attend.  Interested persons unable to attend the public meeting may submit input for consideration by mail, telephone or electronicallyThe deadline for submitting input is November 30, 2012.  Written comments should be directed to:
