Town Council went into Executive Session to discuss matters related to purchasing of property pursuant of Section 30-4-70 (a) (2) of the South Carolina Code. Following Executive Session, Town Council approved Mayor Labriola to submit a letter of intent to purchase a property that shall remain undisclosed at this time under the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act 30-4-70. This nondisclosure allows the protection of the sellers’ confidential information on the sale of their real estate and the integrity of purchase negotiations until formal agreements have been reached. Should any further action be taken, the Town will notify the community as soon as possible.
