By Stan Welch

Anderson County Council started early Tuesday night, with an investiture ceremony prior to the first meeting of the year.

Pastor Bill Rigsby, of North Anderson Baptist Church, spoke and administered the oaths of office, was followed by a reception. Councilman Mitchell Cole, from District Three, was the only new addition to the Council.

Council then got down to its serious business, reelecting Tommy Dunn as chairman and Ken Waters as vice chairman. The only contested vote came when Councilwoman Gracie Floyd nominated Tom Allen for vice chairman. She and Allen were the two dissenting votes. Floyd abstained from the voting for chairman.

Powdersville residents attend town hall meeting

By Stan Welch

Anderson County Council District Six representative Ken Waters continued his practice of holding periodic ‘town hall’ meetings in the Powdersvile area last week.

Approximately thirty people attended a meeting held last Tuesday, and once again, traffic was the topic du jour. Waters said that questions concerning several state roads came up but he explained that state roads and county roads are two different things.

There was some discussion about a proposal to extend Highway 153 all the way to Pickens County, but the prevailing sentiment appeared to be that the existing stretch of highway could get attention before extending it.
