Piedmont sets budget work session


By Stan Welch

The regularly scheduled meeting of the Piedmont Public Service District Board of Commissioners was postponed Monday night so that commission members could conduct a budget workshop prior to the meeting.

One issue facing the commission is the amount of revenue they will receive in the form of aid to local subdivisions, or the percentage of monies returned to the local area by the General Assembly.

Also, there have been a number of vacant commercial properties reactivated or occupied in recent months, which affects the property taxes collected on those sites by Anderson and Greenville Counties. That in turn affects the revenues received by the Commission.

A budget workshop is scheduled next Monday, April 22nd at 6 p.m. The session is open to the public.
