Confused by the PBC

January 2, 2014 

I read with interest the story about the St. Clair County Public Building Commission proposing a multi-million dollar budget for Mid-America Airport, so I decided to view the website for the PBC. An item caught my attention on the website, which I feel some readers might find interesting. It states very clearly: "The Public Building Commission is responsible for maintaining, operating and managing all county buildings except Mid- America Airport and the Highway Department Building." Yet here is the PBC involved with daily operations of a facility, which, by its website's own admission, should not be. Am I missing something?
