North Augusta municipal building

City Council will meet at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the municipal building for the study session and council meeting. 

North Augusta City Council will vote on a resolution related to property for public safety facilities on Monday during its regularly scheduled meeting.

According to an agenda for Monday's meeting, Council will vote on a resolution that, if passed, would execute an option to purchase property for the "utilization and construction of a Public Safety facility or facilities."

The option would be in the amount of $275,000.

In August, City Council gave the go-ahead to purchase a piece of property at 311 West Martintown Road – previously referred to by Council as the "Clay Street property" – in order to build a new fire station. That go-ahead was in the form of an option in the amount of $250,000.

The agenda for Monday's meeting does not identify the piece of property related to the resolution Council will vote on Monday, but an email from Mayor Bob Pettit states: "This is an update on the property between Clay Street and Martintown Rd."

Council will also be voting on the third and final reading of an ordinance that would annex a piece of property – around 1.45 acres – owned by the Aiken County Board of Education.

The property is located off Knobcone Avenue near North Augusta High School.

The first two readings of the ordinance passed unanimously during Council's Oct. 7 meeting.

Ahead of the meeting during executive session, Council will discuss a personnel matter, as well as "ongoing litigation" related to the Holcomb vs. City of North Augusta lawsuit.

City Council will meet Monday at 6 p.m. for their study session and at 7 p.m. for the meeting. Both will take place on the third floor of the municipal building at 100 Georgia Avenue.
