Council Approves Millage

  Saluda County Council approved the school and county millage Mon., Sept 14.

  The consideration to accept a line of credit letter for American Land Holdings, LLC, in reference to Palmetto Pointe Subdivision and allow American Land Holdings, LLC, to release a $3 million bond died for lack of a second.
  Council members were concerned that pavement in the new development was already cracking, and the roads would eventually be turned over to Saluda County.
  Chairman Jerry Strawbridge’s appointment of Hugh Coates and reappointment of Jill Altman to the Library Board were approved.
