County swearing-in to take place Jan. 2 at library

GREENWOOD – Greenwood County Council members agreed informally Thursday to have the swearing-in for county officials on Wednesday, Jan. 2, at the library.

Council’s Administration and Finance Committee met Thursday at Park Place, but was unable to conduct any official business because of lack of a quorum. Only Council Chairman Robbie Templeton and council members Mark Allison and Gonza Bryant were present for the meeting. Bob Fisher, the new council member for District 7, was present but has not yet been sworn in.

The location of next week’s swearing-in was the topic that drew the most discussion. Initially, it was planned to have the swearing-in at the courthouse at 5 p.m., and then relocate to the library for council’s regularly scheduled meeting.

Templeton expressed the opinion that both events should take place at one location to prevent confusion and those gathered agreed informally for the events to take place at the library.

In other business, retiring Clerk of Court Ingram Moon made a request to take a seal that no longer is in use with her when she leaves her position.

The committee could not take official action and Templeton said full council would consider the request next week, but County Manager Toby Chappell recommended that Moon be allowed to take the seal with her.

There are two items scheduled for second reading and public hearing at council’s meeting next – one is an ordinance providing for the repeal of the ordinance that created the Lake Greenwood Trust Fund; the second is an ordinance ratifying the multi-county park agreements between Newberry and Greenwood counties and other related matters.

There was no discussion on either issue during the committee meeting.

A planned closed session was cancelled because of the lack of a quorum.

Too bad Sonny Cox fired Masha Kelly Clarke over the Christmas holidays. Guess that's the way things get done when you win coroner.
