West Chatham Warning Devices Inc. was awarded a contact to supply lighting and equipment for the county’s emergency vehicles over the next three years at Colleton County Council’s April 4 session.
Graham County Land Company, LLC was designated the low bidder on the Greenway Trail project, and council approved having county officials enter into a contract with the company to handle the first phase of the installation of a hike-bike trail along the abandoned railroad right-of-way alongside Green Pond Highway. The project is covered with funds from a South Carolina Park, Recreation and Tourism grant, a Colleton Transportation Commission allocation and funds from the Planning and Development budget.
An amendment to the Joint County Industrial Park agreement between Charleston and Colleton counties was approved by county council.
The ordinance that will eventually contain the county’s 2017-2018 fiscal year budget was given its first reading at the April session.
The ordinance was introduced by title-only as county officials continue to work on the budget, which has to be finalized and approved by council before July 1.
Council approved a resolution designating April as Fair Housing Month and, in a companion resolution, renewed Deadgra Sadler’s designation as the county’s America Disabilities Act Compliance coordinator as well as renewing the county’s policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of disability status.
Another resolution declared May 15 as Peace Officers’ Memorial Day and the week of May 15 as Police Week.
May 13 was declared by resolution as Stewardship Day for the Edisto River Basin. The declaration coincides with the Friends of the Edisto’s annual basin-wide cleanup of the Edisto River.
