Winnsboro Council Reads Zoning Ordinances

During the Oct. 16 town council meeting in Winnsboro, the first of three readings took place of new zoning ordinances. Ordinance 110612A is an ordinance to revise the town of Winnsboro zoning code or ordinances. Ordinance 110612B is an ordinance to regulate and discharge fats, oil and grease. Ordinance 100612C is an ordinance amending the business license and provisions for insurance companies. The ordinances will not be voted on until the next official town council meeting on Nov. 13.

Later during the meeting, Councilman Danny Miller voiced concerns about reports he said he has received from citizens claiming discoloration in their water. Town manager Don Wood attempted to ease his concerns.

“There is nothing in the water that is harmful,” Wood said. “Our engineers are working on a solution and everyone assures us there is nothing wrong with the water.”

The discoloration has come from a purging of water that is done routinely once to twice a year. Wood agreed to request a letter from the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) verifying that the water is completely safe.

After executive session the council members arranged to meet for a work session on Nov. 13.
