Voters Say No To $5 Million Sewer Proposal

Less than five percent of eligible voters went to the polls June 8 in Scotland County to decide the fate of the $5 million sewer district proposal. Those who did make it to the polls voted against the proposal, which failed by a final tally of 49 votes to only 35 yes votes.

The ballot issue would have created a sewer district and provided funding options for the creation of some form of disposal system for customers of the Consolidated Public Water Supply District #1 in Scotland County.

Despite having support in the Rutledge and Gorin communities in the past, the sewer district issue drew just a 4.7 percent voter turnout.
