Anderson County Council approved a new process for franchising non-emergency ambulance service as part of Tuesday’s meeting in the history courthouse downtown. 

Anderson County Councilman Ray Graham said the move was an effort to improve such service throughout the county and to have a system in place moving forward.

Council also approved tax incentives for the acquisition and development of a public-private "Project Avocado." The initiative includes five separate projects/properties in the county which could bring a combined investment of nearly $20 million. 

Details are emerging.

Also on Tuesday night, council also approved arrangements to move ahead on proposals for use of the land the county acquired as part of the acquisition of the TTI (Old Singer/Ryobi) property on Pearman Dairy Road. The move is part of the county long-term plans for use of the property and facilties.
