Anderson County Council started early Tuesday night, with an investiture ceremony prior to the first meeting of the year.
The meeting, at which Pastor Bill Rigsby, of North Anderson Baptist Church, spoke and administered the oaths of office, was followed by a reception. Councilman Mitchell Cole, from District Three, was the only new addition to the Council.
Council then convened and one of their first acts was to adopt a resolution recognizing the newly formed Mill Town Players theater group from Pelzer for its accomplishments in the arts. Chief among those achievements was the group’s winning of the South Carolina Theater Festival.
