Annexation meeting postponed


A special called meeting of Williamston Town Council to hold second reading on a ribbon annexation was postponed Thursday morning due to lack of a quorum available for the meeting and questions about taking a vote electronically.

Williamston Mayor Mack Durham said the town was considering having a video conference to include members of council who are on their way to the State Municipal Association meeting in Hilton Head, but decided to reschedule a meeting when all members could be present.

Update – Williamston Town Council will hold a special called meeting at the Hilton Head Marriott, One Hotel Circle in Hilton Head SC at 11:15 a.m. on Friday July 17 to hold second reading on the ribbon annexation being pursued by the town. Attorney Lee Cole and Town Clerk Michelle Starnes will be included from Williamston via a phone conference call.
