Upcoming COTU Meeting Thursday, Oct 21, 7 PM
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, at 7 PM
Our guest speaker is Amy Williams, who is running for our School Board District 7. Please come out and ask her your questions, even if you can't vote for her, we need to vet her, because her votes will impact children's education here in our county as well as our taxes.
Here is the link to her website: www.voteamywilliams.com
The other school board candidate is TJ Layton, he was offered twice to come and speak but said he could not. He does not have a website so you'll have to contact him yourself and ask your questions.
Here's TJ Layton's contact info: Phone# 864-444-5400 and email: email@example.com
There is a County Council Committee Of the Whole meeting
Monday night, October 18, 6 PM
It will be held in the main conference room of the Administration Building, 222 McDaniel Ave, Pickens, SC 29671. Topics on their agenda for discussion are Recreational funding District 3, Mile Creek funding request, Litter Ordinance, American Rescue Act Funding and Emergency Medical Services issues. As I have told you before, they don't video these meetings, so if you want to see their interactions and hear what they say, you have to be there or wait a whole month before the minutes get posted.
REMINDER, The over 600 signatures for asking our county council to sign a resolution to protect our property rights was ignored by this present county council. This should be of great concern to you as to why they refuse to simply agree to protect our God given property rights. Our Pickens County Comprehensive Plan that deals with land usage is coming up soon. There's already a meeting about possible infringements happening on Hwy 11 property owners property rights. This meeting is to be held at 120 Holly Springs Rd, Pickens, SC 29671
Tuesday, October 19th at 5PM till 7PM
An unelected, non-governmental agency, the Appalachian Council of Governments, is in charge of that meeting. If you plan on going, please read up on the Delphi Technique as I am pretty sure this will be the format used. Here's an article you should read on that technique:
