The Pickens County Council will meet at the County Administration Building tonight at 6:30 PM . The Council is deciding on whether or not to hold an advisory vote during the November elections - giving Tri-County Tech $6.5 to $6.7 million to build a new student Union building.
This is against the law in my opinion (Article 11 Section 3 of the SC Constitution) - the state is responsible for funding this building if it is to be built. Since all of our over-collected funds are already obligated, in my opinion illegally reserved, for a new jail, this will mean a tax increase. Such a tax increase would also be illegal because the 8% for educational funding -,using general obligation bonds - is already used up by the School Board.
Pickens County has already spent tens of millions to finance a career center that is Tri-County Tech's main mission, at a direct cost to Pickens County tax payers, but hidden in the Pickens County School Board's budget.
Come and protest or have your taxes go up.
