Busy Agenda for County Council

A long-term financial plan is to be introduced to Laurens County Council this evening. The agenda calls for County Administrator Jon Camie to present this plan along with an early look at a budget for fiscal year 2020-2021. Mr. Caime will also discuss a preliminary long-term debt and capital improvement plan for council’s consideration. A possible investment in a new Laurens County transfer station for household garbage is up for discussion among old business items on this evening’s agenda. Other old business facing council members this evening includes approval for the final phase of the HVAC repairs to the Hillcrest Square Courts and Services building and a $3.5 million capital improvement for the county fire service.

In economic development matters, County Council is to have 2nd reading of an ordinance for “Project Needle Punch” in old business and, in new business, they’ll be asked to give first reading approval to “Project Blueberry” along with a Resolution of Support for that new project.

Laurens County Council meets at 5:30 this evening in Council Chambers on second floor of the Historic Courthouse.
