Edgefield Council Completes Town Business in 10 Minutes

web posted August 6, 2014

EDGEFIELD In one of the Edgefield Town Council's shortest meetings ever on Monday night (about 10 minutes) Council adopted an ordinance, approved a resolution and a letter of request, and briefly discussed other business.

Following the adoption of the minutes for July 7, 2014 and adoption of the financial report for July 2014, Council considered on second reading Ordinance 2014-03, an ordinance to adopt the comprehensive plan as reviewed and recommended by the Planning & Zoning Commission. It was approved unanimously.

Resolution 2014-02, a resolution endorsing the expenditure of funds as a required match for a Community Development Block Grant project for the purchase of a new fire truck was approved. Plans to apply for a matching grant for this purpose have been discussed at previous Council meetings.

Council received a letter of request from Edgefield County Chamber of Commerce to host an Oyster Roast on Saturday, Sept. 27, at 6 p.m. on the Town Square, blocking off the street of the south side, in occurrence with the Edgefield Heritage Jubilee Festival. It was approved.

Under the mayor's report, Mayor Ken Durham announced that the S.C. National Heritage Corridor is still working with the Town to design needed directional signage for the downtown area. He said that the Town should be hearing something soon from the Heritage Corridor on this matter.

The next meeting of the Edgefield County Council has been rescheduled. Due tho the fact that Labor Day falls on the first Monday in September, the meeting has been moved to Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014.

The mayor also reminded Council that there will be a meeting concerning the Heritage Jubilee this Thursday, Sept. 7, at 6 p.m. at Town Hall.

Since there was no further old or new business to discuss, Council adjourned.
