At this time as Mr. Harmon calls your name for citizens comments , you have three minutes. It should be on matters that's on the agenda. Please address the chair . State your name and district for the record as you approach or before you talk .

LEON HARMON: Mr . Chairman , first speaker is Danny Brown . DANNY BROWN : How y ' all doing today? I ' m Danny Brown from the (mic went out) . LEON HARMON : Next speaker is Rich Bennett . RICH BENNETT : Rich Benne t t , 307 Compass Point. I ' m talking about the rezoning of the 9.7 acres , 2019 - 032 . I ' ll give y ' all an update . Since we talked last , we have met with the neighborhood again , out there at the neighborhood. We had quite a few people show up. Kind of adjusted a few things on it . I think everybody is in agreement for moving forward . Before the next reading , the next time I ask to have it read, I'm going to have their deed restricted. I ' ll go over the points of that. That it be would be county or the neighborhood that ' s in force. Right now we agreed-- we originally talked about a three hundred foot buffer in the back. We moved it to six hundred feet and thirty foot buffer off the road, or six hundred feet and twenty foot the next distance , limit to one curb cut . I went from three hundred to six hundred , but they ' re inside the six hundred feet there ' s going to be nothing built. They allowed me to (mic cutting out) storm water or retention pond so they could be in that six hundred foot buffer , but no structures other than storm

water . So they got a little more (mic cutting out) then do a 2 thirty foot buffer . People won ' t see it anyway . So it worked 3 out good . And that gives me kind of a rougher piece of 4 property and place to put the retention pond in the back and 5 put it all the way around and it gives the front more useable 6 property . I think basically we ' ve all agreed on that . And 7 then when we go through a second reading , we ' re going to draft 8 a deed restriction and have a survey done showing exactly the 9 points and make sure they ' re happy to review it . And then if

we ' re both happy we ' ll come to ask for the third reading . 11 That ' s where we are right now. Thank you . 12 TOMMY DUNN: Thank you . Mr. Harmon . 13 LEON HARMON: Mr . Chairman , next speaker is Mike 14 Manley . 15 MIKE MANLEY: I ' m Mike Manley . I live at 1158 16 Cartee Road and I concur with what Richard just said as far as 17 the plans that we ' re looking at at this point . The one major 18 concern , if we can work these other issues out that we 19 continue to have , and I ' ve talked to Mr . Sanders about this , 20 is the enforcement of these restrictions . We do not have a 21 neighborhood association or anything , so we would really have 22 to get some kind of indication from the county zoning that 23 they would be willing to do that . Thank you . 24 TOMMY DUNN : Thank you . 25 LEON HARMON: Next speaker is Mitch Mack . 26 MITCH MACK : Mitch Mack , 1203 Cartee Road . Good 27 evening , council members and audience . I just want to say 28 that I ' m in concurrence with what we ' ve agreed to so far with 29 Mr . Bennett and the neighborhood residents . We had a pretty 30 productive meeting a couple of weeks ago . And I think the 31 main concern going forward is just the future of a long term 32 enforcement of trying to leave that buffer there for us . I 33 think we ' ve come to the best agreement we all can , the best 34 for both parties . I just want to say thank you for your time 35 and consideration . 36 TOMMY DUNN : Next , Mr . Harmon . 37 LEON HARMON : Next speaker is Elizabeth Fant . 38 ELIZABETH FANT : Elizabeth Fant , District 3 . I ' m 39 speaking on several things . One is the ordinance that these 40 other people just commented on . I ' m glad to see that the 41 parties involved have worked something out . But I was really 42 floored a couple of meetings ago when they had the first 43 reading and they were told that it could be tabled for however 44 long and not even come up until September or January , and then 45 bam , the next meeting there it was again . And these people 46 hadn ' t had time to go talk to Mr . Bennett to work things out . 47 And that was just really a slam in the face . And I don ' t like 48 to see it when council does stuff like that . 49 I want to speak on administrator ' s report , sheriff ' s 50 report . If you haven ' t been keeping up with what ' s going on

clinics . A lot of people in Anderson County is not aware that it ' s even here. Right To Life Foundation was raised up out of the struggles that I went through in my personal life . And during them personal struggles , I was about run out of town for a situation that drugs was involved . Well , the methadone clinic is selling drugs in Anderson County . Like she said , the sheriff is doing a tremendous -- he ' s doing tremendous work cleaning the streets , but we ' ve got a legal situation. People , men and women , in the Anderson County jail , South Carolina prison system , are doing eighty- five percent of their bids , most of them , about ninety percent of them , for the same thing this place is doing up here legally .

I go every day when I leave Gold ' s Gym , after I work out, I go to the methadone clinic . And it ' s no different than a drug house . Excuse me . No different than a drug house . You watch people come in and out . And what it does , it takes a toll on a community as a whole because they go to local stores and they steal , some of them do , because they don ' t have jobs and they have to pay for their methadone once a week . Okay . A five dollar item could be a fifty dollar item in a store . Take it to a drug dealer or somebody that boosts , a five

d 6 llar item is something bigger than your hand . It could be a 2 hundred dollar bottle of lotion . A three dollar bottle is 3 under your hand . That could be a thirty or forty dollar 4 bottle of lotion , shampoo or anything . Okay . This goes right 5 into play with the methadone clinic . I know people that steal 6 every week or pay for the methadone clinic because they don ' t 7 have no choice because they can ' t keep a job because they ' re 8 so high on methadone . 9 I did twenty- five years in prison .

in South Carolina , we do not have a methadone clinic . We do 11 not have a suboxone clinic . You come in , they don ' t have a 12 methadone clinic at the county jail . You come in , you go 13 through withdrawal for four or five days , they watch you and 14 then you ' re off of it. It ' s over with. 15 I talked to Ms . Dobbins at the clinic , the director of the 16 methadone clinic. We had a forty - five minute discussion . 17 I ' ve had people that ' s maintained on methadone for fifteen or 18 twenty years with no problem . But they ' ve been getting high 19 for fifteen , twenty years . They don ' t need it for fifteen , 20 twenty years . And on top of that Medicaid pays for it. So 21 the taxpayers pays for it , for them to go up there and get 22 high every day. 23 I ' ve had friends that wrecked their cars , totaled their 24 cars , just on methadone . And if you ' re a good methadone 25 person , I mean you go up there and you get high , whatever , but 26 if you do it regular for a long period of time , they send you 27 home with the bottle once a week. You get a whole bottle of 28 methadone , a whole week ' s supply , at one time . Well , that 29 whole week ' s supply , they don ' t maintain all week. Ninety 30 percent of the people that get the whole bottle either sell it 31 to somebody else , they drink it right then , they get high and 32 then they go kill somebody , run off the road in a car or kill 33 their self. It could be you going home , your family going 34 home , each and every night , thinking everything ' s all right 35 and here comes somebody on methadone , mixed with Xanax , 36 drinking liquor and all at one they nod out . It ' s over with . 37 So you ' re dead , your family member is dead , they ' re dead , 38 everybody is in distress . 39 And you have family members of people on methadone -- this 40 one particular lady I know , they worry every night for her 41 safety , not knowing if she ' s going to make it home or not 42 because she ' s done wrecked four times in the past six months , 43 on methadone . 44 So it ' s a very serious issue in Anderson County . I ' m 45 doing my best . I ' ve contacted the representatives of Anderson 46 County at the state house . They ' re trying to get it heard on 47 the floor at the state house . The President has been real 48 hard on opioid drug epidemic and you can ' t hardly get pain 49 pills on the street.

Anderson County Council- County Council Meeting- September 17, 2019 8 everybody because you know how things is . But the majority of the people , and you heard several of them here tonight , here from this thing , has agreed to take it off the table and move forward . At third reading they want some assurance on the deed restrictions and that ' s (mic cutting out) . CINDY WILSON: Okay . So if we vote for this on second reading tonight , we would have a third reading with everyone in agreement . And if they 're not in agreement then we would certainly take that into consideration . TOMMY DUNN : They ' re working on some (mic cutting out) documents from attorneys to tie it to the deed where it will have some teeth . Mr .

TOMMY DUNN : Just for the record , we stated first reading and I think I made it plain last meeting night , once somebody introduces something we can table it , but it ' s got to come forth to table it . You can ' t just take it off the agenda when (mic cutting out ) asks for it to be put on . And that ' s what happened last meeting night . What I asked for the very first time is the citizens (mic cutting out) and work something another out . I think that ' s what it ' s all about. I think it ' s good and hope you continue to work forward on it. Nobody is trying to hoodwink nobody . All in favor of the motion show of hands. All opposed . Or abstains . Motion for second reading to move this forward . Show in favor Mr . Davis , Mr. Dunn , Mr . Graham , Mr. Wooten , Ms . Wilson favor . Ms . Floyd abstains . And Mr . Sanders has recused himself .

RUSTY BURNS : They have used excess land at the airport for over ten years for construction training . All this is doing is renewing the lease that has expired . GRACIE FLOYD: Go back now . They have used what now for RUSTY BURNS : They have used this property at the airport for the last ten years . GRACIE FLOYD : What hav e they been doing out there for the last --- RUSTY BURNS : They have been doing construction training on heavy equipment . GRACIE FLOYD: At the airport? RUSTY BURNS : Yes , ma'am. GRACIE FLOYD: Now , I know that one time that they were talking about coming out there , but I didn ' t know they were already out there.

RUSTY BURNS : Primarily what they have out there 2 is backhoes and things like that . Not the real big heavy --- 3 GRACIE FLOYD : Are they paying us for that? 4 RUSTY BURNS : Tri-County Tech does not pay that , 5 but they train our workers . 6 GRACIE FLOYD: Okay. All right . And the one over 7 at ITT that they want to get into that one . 8 RUSTY BURNS: The one at TTI basically consists of 9 four poles in the ground on the edge of that property to allow

10 people to receive lineman training . And then they will have 11 the use of a classroom that they will use during these lineman 12 training classes . 13 GRACIE FLOYD : Are they paying Anderson County --- 14 RUSTY BURNS : They ' ll be paying , yes , ma ' am , their 15 fair share of utilities and etcetera. Yes , ma ' am . 16 GRACIE FLOYD : Okay . All right. Well , I think 17 this is good for Tri-County Tech . But you have to remember 18 something , that we pay , too . We pay them our fair share of 19 these things that they want to do . And plus the student pays , 20 as well . Okay . Don ' t forget we ' re looking for money to do 21 our roads. 22 RUSTY BURNS: Yes , ma ' am . 23 GRACIE FLOYD : And we need to start tightening up 24 who ' s doing what for what. All right . Thank you . Thank you , 25 Mr . Chair . 26 TOMMY DUNN : Anyone else? 27 CINDY WILSON: May I? 28 TOMMY DUNN : Ms . Wilson . 29 CINDY WILSON : In reference to the airport part of 30 the lease , I guess it was six or seven years ago Tri - County 31 came and asked us to give them the land . And that ' s when we 32 realized that the previous council had purchased that property 33 through the bond issue ; remember? So we couldn ' t just give 34 it . We were still paying debt service on it . So the nice 35 thing about Tri - County Tech being out there is they ' re moving 36 dirt around and hopefully making it more useful for another 37 use once their need is over . And I ' m personally fine with the 38 lease . I ' ve read through it . It -- term ends with a specific 39 time frame. We ' re covered with liability . It ' s a very fair , 40 reasonable lease agreement. Thank you . 41 TOMMY DUNN : Anyone else? All in favor of the 42 motion show of hands . All opposed .

approximately forty million dollars or will invest forty 11 million dollars at that facility . Part of this development 12 and redevelopment of the old Westinghouse building is that 13 Ortec needs additional sewer infrastructure and capacity . And 14 to get that they were required to annex into the town of 15 Pendleton . 16 In doing so , they also had to work out some agreements 17 about additional water capacity needs that they had . And we 18 partnered with the town of Pendleton in helping secure and 19 recruit all that infrastructure for Ortec and work with them 20 (change of audio) as they are creating a hundred and five jobs 21 with an average salary of twenty-one dollars and forty - five 22 cents an hour with an annual payroll of four and a half 23 million dollars. 24 Of course , it ' s a six percent negotiated fee agreement and 25 a multi-county industrial park infrastructure credit agreement 26 that allows them to have incentives up to fifty percent in the 27 first five years ; forty percent in years six through ten ; and 28 thirty percent in years eleven through fifteen. This gives 29 the company an opportunity to grow . There is a projected 30 property tax income of approximately six million dollars over 31 twenty years . And I think I ' ve had a fee run on second page 32 that shows you taxes each year for the next twenty years and 33 what that looks like . 34 But this comes as a recommendation from staff to council 35 for a project that ' s creating some awfully good jobs for 36 Anderson County . 37 TOMMY DUNN : Thank you , Mr. Nelson . 38 BURRISS NELSON : Yes , sir , thank you . 39 TOMMY DUNN : Anyone have anything else?

about numerous times . Mr . Harmon has worked on this and I ' ll 2 let him explain this ; and Ms . Hunter , Dr . Parkey . This is , my 3 understanding from Ms . Hunter , we had some -- this only 4 affects zoned areas . We had complaints about some of these 5 things violating this . Go to Court , but no teeth in it to do 6 nothing about it . Throw it out , needing something . This is 7 the reason we got to where we did to rewrite this to give them 8 some teeth when they go to Court to have something to enforce 9 with . Mr . Harmon , do you want to dress that up a little bit?

LEON HARMON : Yes , Mr . Chairman , and members of 11 council . The actual ordinance , the portion that will be added 12 to our code , is attached as Exhibit A to this ordinance . This 13 resulted from some work out of the Public Works Committee . 14 We ' ve been working on this for some time . It is , as Mr . 15 Chairman mentioned , an effort to give the enforcement folks a 16 better opportunity to enforce when we find situations where 17 equipment and that type thing , the equipment that ' s mentioned 18 in the ordinance , is being stored in residentially zoned 19 areas ; not RA and RA2 districts . 20 TOMMY DUNN : Anyone have any questions? This is 21 only first reading . 22 CINDY WILSON : Just a quick refresher reminder . 23 We ' ve had a lot of citizens coming to us very distraught that 24 they bought into a residential zoned area and a logging 25 operation popped up on a lot next to them or a car repair 26 business that is certainly not a part of residential zoning 27 classification . And it results in the loss of quiet enjoyment 28 for their properties and sometimes devalues their property . 29 So it ' s , you know , these type operations can go into properly 30 zoned areas or go into unzoned areas . And that ' s the whole 31 point . It ' s the residential zoned areas. It has nothing to 32 do with the agricultural use of property or bigger sites. 33 Thank you . 34 TOMMY DUNN : I also want to point , Mr . Harmon has 35 got some language in there-- I don ' t know if y ' all have seen 36 this --that ' s about if you ' ve got multiple acres , say 37 something has got twenty areas , they ' ll be looked after where 38 they won ' t be (mic cutting out) on larger parcel pieces of 39 property. 40 LEON HARMON : Yes , there is language in the 41 ordinance , Mr . Chairman , for that . If you have a large tract 42 that ' s zoned , say R20 , and nothing is visible from a property 43 line , then this ordinance would not enforce against a business 44 utilizing that property for storage of its equipment . 45 GRACIE FLOYD: Mr. Chair . 46 TOMMY DUNN : Ms . Floyd . 47 GRACIE FLOYD : Mr . Harmon , I understood everything 48 until it got all confusing just now . At the end of your 49 statement a few minutes ago , you said it had -- this was zoned 50 property in RA or R something else you said .

LEON HARMON : No , RA and RA2 is specifically exempted from this --- GRACIE FLOYD : Well , see , what is RA and what i s RA2? LEON HARMON : RA and RA2 are residential agricultural zoning districts. GRACIE FLOYD : So this would apply to all zoned areas? LEON HARMON : Residential zoned areas , yes , ma ' am . GRACIE FLOYD : But if you ' re not zoning in your residential area , then it does not apply to you? LEON HARMON : That ' s correct . It only applies in zoned areas of the county . GRACIE FLOYD : But we don 't have that many zoned areas ; do we? LEON HARMON : Well , I don ' t have a count of how many --- TOMMY DUNN : That ' s a whole lot more that ' s not zoned than is zoned . GRACIE FLOYD : Yes . So this won ' t make much of a dent to anybody . If somebody is having this situation problem, whatever it is , if they ' re having this problem well this ordinance would not help them at all if they ' re not zoned.

another solar project . This is our third, I believe , solar 11 project in Anderson County . This is a small location just 12 north of the town of Honea Path . Solar projects don ' t create 13 jobs , but it'll take two farm properties that last year the 14 total of the two properties generated a hundred and four 15 dollars . And when the solar array is up and operational , 16 it ' ll generate eight thousand dollars a year . It ' ll bring in , 17 over twenty years , a total of a hundred and sixty thousand 18 dollars.

For the most part in 43 almost every case the property owners have been older . 44 They're my age , pardon the expression , but they're looking to 45 preserve the land for their children and grandchildren and not 46 have to worry about the undue burden for themselves on their 47 limited retirement income to pay taxes and keep the property 48 up and the things that take place . So this not only helps 49 them keep the property up and keep it free of grass and trees 50 and things that you might not want, but it also preserves the

And I think in almost 3 every care these have been elderly people who were looking to 4 preserve their farmland for their children at some point in 5 the future . 6 CRAIG WOOTEN : Okay .

BURRISS NELSON : Yes , ma ' am. 11 GRACIE FLOYD: Why is it a fee in lieu of? 12 BURRISS NELSON: Well , it becomes manufacturing 13 because it ' s generating power just like Duke Energy does . So 14 it ' s -- by the South Carolina Department of Commerce , it is 15 considered a manufacturing operation because it ' s 16 manufacturing electricity . It forces it to become a ten and a 17 half percent manufacturing assessment ratio and puts it in the 18 manufacturing class . So to be able to get a reasonable 19 property tax on that particular property and make that cost 20 analysis work for the sale of power and the investment in all 21 that equipment , fee in lieu is the pathway to make it work . 22 GRACIE FLOYD : Okay . All right. That sounds good 23 for the owner , sounds good for the owner ' s grandchildren , it 24 sounds really good . But it doesn ' t do much for the taxpayers . 25 What do we get out of it? 26 BURRISS NELSON : Well , it turned a farm property 27 from paying a hundred dollars a year in to one paying eight 28 thousand dollars a year. 29 GRACIE FLOYD: Through fee in lieu of whether --- 30 BURRISS NELSON : Through fee in lieu ; that ' s right . 31 GRACIE FLOYD: The eight thousand dollars , is this 32 where the school gets seventy percent of it and the county 33 gets a little bit , if any , and the fire department gets 34 millage out of that , too , is that --- 35 BURRISS NELSON : Yes , ma'am . That ' s correct . 36 GRACIE FLOYD : If I ask you out of the eight 37 thousand dollars what do I get as a taxpayer with the fee in 38 lieu of? What do we all get out of it? 39 TOMMY DUNN : You get roughly thirty percent of 40 eight thousand dollars . 41 GRACIE FLOYD: Wait a minute . I don ' t know what 42 thirty percent is . I ' m not that math minded. 43 BURRISS NELSON : Nor am I . 44 GRACIE FLOYD : What? 45 CRAIG WOOTEN : Twenty-four hundred. 46 GRACIE FLOYD : Two thousand four hundred dollars . 47 How much are we giving up for fee in lieu of? 48 BURRISS NELSON: I ' d have to go back and calculate 49 it based on the total investment and the ten and a half 50 percent assessment ratio . I don ' t know that right offhand.

GRACIE FLOYD : Do y ' all know that we need money for roads? No wonder we don ' t have any money for roads . We don ' t have any money in our budgets to put in roads and stuff . We ' ve giving it all away . I can ' t do anything with two thousand dollars . I need a roof -- gutters and that ' s going to cost me seven thousand dollars . Do you think it ' s going to cost that much? But the man told me seven thousand dollars and here these people are getting -- huh? Mr . Dunn won ' t do it . But here ' s somebody with a farm and he ' s going to get lieu in fee of tax ; in other words he won ' t pay taxes , but he ' ll just get a fee that he has to pay . And out of that fee all those taxes that he could have paid , I would only get two thousand . I need a driveway . I just don ' t see it , y ' all . But yet we ' re going to put twenty-f i ve dollars on everybody for a road fee when we ' re giving money -- we ' re giving money to the Tri-County Tech . We ' re losing money . We ' re l osing money . Now , I ' m not the smartest light bulb on the tree , but I can shine just as brightly and I am an accounting major and I know there ' s something wrong with this . Mr .

If I went down and built a Bojangle ' s , I ' m going to pay six percent tax . And that ' s basically what ' s happened here. So we ' re taking agriculture land and we ' re turning it into basically a non-manufacturing type facility and we ' re still getting our full amount. BURRISS NELSON : Mr . Chairman , and Mr .

hundreds of years, I would guess . It ' s very rural. It ' s just north of the town of Honea Path . And that landscape hasn ' t changed much in the last thirty years according to the tax map .

BRETT SANDERS : Basically what this will allow us to do from just looking at it without using percentages is to use that land or utilize that land as a developed piece of property that normally wouldn ' t be developed and the county is still getting the six percent that we would get if someone went in there and built a warehouse?

my house it ' s going to go from agriculture-- well , it ' ll stay 11 agriculture and I would still pay that hundred dollars a year , 12 which the county would get thirty dollars . And as long as I 13 live there the county is going to get thirty dollars per year . 14 So what we ' re doing is, we ' re giving basically a four percent 15 break from ten to six percent for this group -- four and a 16 half , okay . So now the county is going to get twenty-four 17 hundred dollars a year instead of thirty dollars a year on a 18 piece of property that would normally never get anything but 19 the thirty dollars a year to the county . 20 BURRISS NELSON : That ' s correct . 21 GRACIE FLOYD : Mr .

But I can ' t 33 get a fee in lieu . Why can ' t this person do this himself? I 34 mean this is not an industry that ' s going to hire people for 35 jobs and stuff . Why couldn ' t this person do this himself? If 36 he wants to have a wind farm out there , go ahead and put one 37 in . Why must my tax dollars help him do this? Why? Don ' t 38 tell me about we ' re going to get twenty percent . Tell me the 39 millions or tell me the hundred thousands . Okay .

Secondly, if Mr. Davis bought that farm and built his home , he would want to survey out an appropriate amount of property for his home because you would change the use of that property from agriculture to residential.

RUSTY BURNS : Nothing at this time , Mr . Chairman . 11 TOMMY DUNN : Now , as Mr . Harmon calls your name , 12 please state your name and district and address the chair . 13 You ' ve got three minutes . Mr . Harmon . 14 LEON HARMON : Mr . Chairman , we have one speaker 15 signed up ; Elizabeth Fant . 16 ELIZABETH FANT : Elizabeth Fant , District 3 . I 17 know you can ' t answer this question back , but number 10 , the 18 Toxaway Mill debris , I wish somebody would explain what 19 happens when a mill demolishes and leaves all the junk behind . 2 0 Are the owners responsible for that when we do clean-up? Are 21 they responsible for that or do they relinquish the property 22 to us , or how that works . 23 I ' m glad to see just about everybody giving some money to 24 the Genealogical Association in Anderson . It ' s a real 25 historical group of people . Lots of people are interested in 26 their family history now ; whereas for years they probably 27 weren ' t . But the library that they have on Federal Street , 28 which is part of the Fine Arts Center , one corner of that , is 29 just unbelievable the amount of history that is collected 30 there . They have their meetings usually the first Monday of 31 the month . Sometimes that changes . And you can join or you 32 can just come to a meeting and listen to the speakers . We ' ve 33 had some real good speakers and tours in the last year . So 34 I ' m glad that you all donated to that cause . 35 Last night Ms . Floyd had her road fee meeting . I think 36 I ' ve only missed one of those meetings . And I tell you , it 37 was the best one that I had been to . Ms . Floyd, I applaud you 38 for actually wanting to listen to the constituents . Ms . Rita 39 Davis did her little PowerPoint presentation and she added a 40 couple of things this time . And Ms . Floyd truly asked for 41 questions and comments from the floor , and I think she got 42 more honest answers than most any of the other arrangements 43 that I ' ve been to . 44 Now I ' m going to run out of time . I was kind of for the 45 road fee thing until last night . And I ' ve about changed my 46 mind . I think that you as council need to find money that ' s 47 already in the general fund and you , as council members , need 48 to get on the bandwagon and get the legislative delegation to 49 give us back the money that they basically have stolen from 50 Anderson County . And I don ' t believe it ' s time to go asking

I just want 13 to say I look forward to tomorrow and meeting our fellow 14 upstate councilmen and councilwomen . And I just want to give 15 a big shout - out to all the wonderful work that our sheriff ' s 16 department has done in the little place called Piedmont , 17 because they are really busting some heads down there. We ' ve 18 seen a lot of good things going on . Thank you . 19 TOMMY DUNN : Thank you . Mr . Sanders? 20 BRETT SANDERS : I want everyone to remember Ms . 21 Croegaert . I think her grandmother passed away . Her aunt . 22 And she showed up tonight and worked hard . And want to thank 23 her and acknowledge her . 24 TOMMY DUNN : Thank you , Mr . Sanders . Ms . Floyd? 25 GRACIE FLOYD : Yes . I think we are in a time that 26 some of us don ' t even know that we ' re there . There are a lot 27 of things going on now . There ' s not a threat of war , but 28 there ' s a threat of a concern overseas . And we have our own 29 with prices going up quickly , fast . I was told if you ' re 30 going to shop for Christmas , you ' d better go ahead and get 31 started before the prices go way up . Food prices are going 32 up , too . My colleagues , I honestly believe that we have 33 money , but I believe we are giving away too much of the money 34 that we have . 35 Just like one of the council members came up with the idea 36 about the aprons , how much money we were spending on the 37 aprons and we stopped doing that. I think you ought to listen 38 to someone else other than just one council members . I bet 39 you if each one of us sat down together , we could come up with 40 a way to save . Tri-County Tech cannot be given land down 41 there at the airport . It looks nice . But when you have to 42 put in a vote to raise people ' s thing so they can-- we can 43 pave the roads , there ' s something wrong . You have schools 44 that ' s taking all of the fee in lieu of taxes . Every dime of 45 it . Well , seventy percent of it ; I ' ll be correct . They ' re 46 taking seventy percent of it. Okay . Nobody says they ' ve got 47 to have the whole thing . We can split it , especially at this 48 time when they have money . They ' ve got that one percent tax . 49 They ' ve build schools galore . Some big ole two and three 50 story schools have three hundred people in them; three hundred

I just 22 want to -- I know the town of Belton community got some bad 23 news last week as far as with Sapa , old Wells Al uminum , 24 closing , losing quite a bit of employees down in that area . 25 And I ' ve been a part of that community for years . I growed up 26 down there and a lot of the employees are kind of going 27 through some hard times right now trying to determine what ' s 28 going to take place . I think some of their days , around early 29 November , early December , is when it looks like it ' s going to 30 actually take place . But definitely want to commend Rusty and 31 Burriss Nelson , the Economic Development Group , for jumpi ng in 32 and trying to help get some of these employees placed . I know 33 it ' s still early in the game , but I ' ve had a lot of peop l e , 34 I ' ve kind of let them know that was going on and they ' re 35 definitely appreciative of it . 36 You know , until you ' re up against a situation where you 37 don ' t have means to support your fami ly , some of these guys , 38 and it ' s guys I went to school with and have known all my 39 life , has literally worked there since we got out of school 40 and all of a sudden they ' re looking at being out of a job for 41 the first time in their adult lives .

wonderful work down there . I try to be an amateur genealogist 2 and actually found out the first Wooten in my family came to 3 Anderson in 1840 from Spartanburg . It got too rough up there 4 so we had to come this way . But that ' s really cool what they 5 do down there . 6 The other thing I wanted to mention just really briefly . 7 I went to Into These Woods , the play that the city held Sunday 8 night , and it was a wonderful production . I think what was 9 really nice about it , it was a beautiful night out . It was

free . People just came out and sat together . There seemed to 11 be a few hundred people there . And what struck me as just 12 heartwarming was it was just people from the community. 13 People wanted to come out and sit together and watch something 14 together in an age of the front porch going away and in an age 15 of so much division , I thought it was a very positive thing 16 that our city did and the community and it worked out well . 17 That ' s it . 18 TOMMY DUNN : Thank you . Ms . Wilson . 19 CINDY WILSON : Thank you . It ' s hard to believe 20 that genealogy is a great tourism draw for our county . Two 21 years ago T. Boone Pickens came from Texas to Clemson and this 22 area to check his ancestors out . The Pickens family is an old 23 family here . And he passed away last week . That was really 24 sad . 25 The Hydro situation , an employee called earlier last week 26 and Burriss and Terry and Rusty got right on it . The good 27 news , in spite of that bad news , they believe that those 28 employees will each get better jobs paying more money . So 29 that ' s really very heartening . And isn ' t it great to be part 30 of a county that works so hard to help its citizens out and 31 keep our citizens informed . Thank y ' all . 32 TOMMY DUNN : Thank you . I ' d like to thank my 33 fellow council members for the hard work they ' re doing , and 34 especially on the town hall meetings they ' re having and 35 community meetings . I think there ' s been roughly around 36 fourteen . I think there ' s four or five more scheduled , and be 37 some more . I don ' t think nobody that I ' ve talked to mind is 38 made up . But it ' s a fact - finding thing and getting out . 39 One think county council has to do is go out and get 40 things done and solve problems . We can ' t pass the buck . It 41 stops here . And I ' ve said at every one of the meetings , and 42 I ' ve made all the meetings , and I intend to make the rest of 43 them. But we ' ve got to do something for our roads . And this 44 is a thing that ' s been talked about since the beginning of 45 June , I think , we said we would talk about this and have these 46 things up. And that ' s where we ' re at and listening to people . 47 I ' ve been to all of them . We ' ve had some very good meetings , 48 some not so good as far as turnout , but some decent. Had a 49 lot of ideas and talked to people and got the information out 50 and hope to have a lot more information for people coming out .
