Council OK’s Water Deal

WINNSBORO – Town Council during their Aug. 18 meeting approved for a third time a water agreement for the development of 26 acres on Rimer Pond Road.

Last March, Council approved up to 42,800 gallons per day for 107 residential lots on a 26-acre tract at 502 Rimer Pond Road in Blythewood, while also approving 25,000 gallons per day for 5 acres of commercial property adjoining the tract, both for Sycamore Development, LLC. At their June 16 meeting, Council voted unanimously to transfer Sycamore’s water agreement for the residential tract to LandTech, Inc. of S.C.

On Aug. 18, Council passed another resolution authorizing the Town of Winnsboro to enter into a water service agreement for development with Rimer Pond Land Investors, LLC (a development under parent company LandTech, Inc.) for the 26 acres. Sycamore, with the consent of the Town of Winnsboro, has transferred meter and water capacity as set forth in a Water Capacity Availability and Willingness to serve letter dated April 10.

The latest agreement calls for about 33,000 gallons per day for 100 residential lots for a subdivision the developer calls Coatbridge. H. B. Chuck Munn Jr., a principal in LandTech, Inc., said the company expects to begin construction about the first of next year on the development, which is located across from Blythewood Middle School. Munn said buildout is expected to be complete in 2-1/2 to 3 years.

Capital Expenditures

Council approved a request from the Electric Department for $4,800 for a panel Christmas tree to replace the one recently pruned by Fairfield County in Gazebo Park, along with $3,500 for holiday decorations.

Council also approved a bid from A-1 Paint contractors to repaint the interior of Town Hall. The cost for painting the first floor was approved at $5,725 and the second floor at $3,800.
