Council to Consider Vehicle Fee, Summer Sewer Adjustments

Updated May 20

Anderson County Council has a full agenda for Tuesday's meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the historic courthouse downtown.

In executive session council has scheduled discussions on contractual issues related to the courthouse square property development, the donation of land adjacent to the Civic Center, and the lease on the property which currently houses the Anderson County Voter Registration and Elections offices at 301 N. Main Street.

Council will follow up on the Planning and Public Works Committee meeting which discussed the potential for a $25 vehicle fee to provide funding for road paving/maintenance of the county's 1,5535 miles of roads. The fee would raise $5.3 millon annually and would be used exclusively for roads. The fee would also be packaged with a one-mill tax reduction for Anderson County taxpayers.

Council will also consider deleting summer adjustments from the county's sewer ordinance which provides special rate considerations in the summer months to compensate for watering lawns, filling swimming pools, etc.

They will also cast a final vote on tax incentives for Bluebird Solar on a solar array project involving 40 acres in Council District 4 as part of Tuesday's meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the historic courthouse downtown.

“It’s a great investment and return on the dollar for Anderson County.” said Anderson County Economic Director Burriss Nelson of the project. The current annual tax bill on the property is $61. Nelson said  the new investment by the solar company is slated to generate $17,500 per year for the county for at least 25 years.
