Council approves A-tax distribution

Brian King

GREENWOOD, SC – Greenwood County Council approved Accommodations tax distribution at their regular meeting Tuesday afternoon, the first for new county manager Toby Chappell.

Council had previously tabled the A-tax recommendations from the advisory committee after it was discovered that American Legion Post 20 did not qualify for the funding that was recommended. Council voted unanimously to move that money to the Festival of Flowers, the county’s largest festival and tourist attraction. View complete A-Tax distribution.

In other business, council appointed Hugh Jones, human resources manager at Cooper Industries, as Work Ready Community Initiative County Chairperson. Jones will work closely with the Workforce Development Committee at the Chamber of Commerce to use Work Keys testing to certify area workers. Many believe that nationally recognized worker’s assessments will help attract industry to the area.

Council also approved the purchase of a new back hoe for the Public Works Department. County Public Works Director Mike Weeks recommended council approve the purchase of a JCB back hoe for $76,426 rather than go with the low bid for a Volvo, which came in at $75,540.90. Weeks told council that he had conversations with other counties and municipalities and did not receive good feedback concerning the Volvo equipment. Weeks told council that the county already owned to JCB tractors and county personnel were familiar with them, in addition to receiving to receiving good technical support from the manufacturer. Council also gave Weeks permission to sell the old 1988 Caterpillar tractor.
