Our 255th story, a GSA Business Report Q&A, comes from the Chairman of Greer Commission
of Public Works, Perry J. Williams.
When we flip on the bedroom light, turn on the kitchen faucet, start the furnace or flush the toilet, we aren't thinking about water pipes, gas lines or waste water treatment, but that's exactly what Perry J. Williams concerns himself with daily as Chairman of Greer Commission of Public Works. Originally chartered in 1913, Greer Commission of Public Works provides electricity, gas, water and waste water treatment for approx. 80,000 people. Profit is not what drives the Greer Commission of Public Works. Perry says that providing reliable and fiscally sound utilities is what drives him and the Commission. So the next time you flip a switch or turn a faucet in the Greer area, you can rest assured that the power and the water will be there, thanks to Greer Commission of Public Works and it's Chairman, Perry J. Williams.
