County Council's Jan. 23 meeting


Sumter County Council on Tuesday, Jan. 23, passed first reading to revise a sign ordinance, heard a report from Sumter County Coroner Robbie Baker and passed second reading of an ordinance to purchase automated flood gates for the dam at Second Mill Pond.

City-County Planning Director George McGregor told council members that the sign ordinance amendment would match the city’s language and “what it essentially does is increase the amount of allowable signage.” A presentation will be made at the next council meeting, he said.

Spring is just around the corner and your County government is hitting full stride.
