Williamston annexation tabled


In a vote held in Hilton Head Island Friday morning, Williamston Town Council unanimously tabled the Ribbon Annexation that has been pursued over the past six weeks.

Councilmembers Tony Hagood, Rockey Burgess and David Harvell along with Mayor Mack Durham voted 4-0 to table the issue. Councilman Otis Scott, attending the meeting in Williamston via a conference call, also voted to table.

Town Attoney Lee Cole and Town Clerk Michelle Starnes were present for the conference call. Cole asked those in Hilton Head for a voice rollcall vote which was unanimous.

Mayor Durham said the issue was tabled after one of the property owners expressed reservations about proceeding with it.
