Rowland presented near 2,400-acre plot for landfill
By RICK HEAD
A villain is the bad guy, the one who comes up with diabolical plots to somehow cause harm or ruin. The villain may truly believe that he/she is helping the society, but causes harm in the process.
For many Brantley County residents, the person fitting that description is former County Manager Carl Rowland, who is currently the County Administrator for the Worth County Board of Commissioners in Sylvester, some 19 miles east of Albany. Rowland served as County Manager from October 15, 2012, until his firing on April 6, 2017.
It was during his second year in office (2014) Rowland began talks with outsiders concerning the available property for a proposed landfill in Brantley County. That was confirmed by engineer Steve Harbin of Harbin Engineering, P.C. during a meeting with The Brantley Beacon on the first day of July.
