Closed-door City Hall meeting
Walhalla City Council members broke up their closed meeting after more than an hour last night—with no action taken. The mayor and council met with their utilities superintendent and a representative of a Greenville engineering company for what was advertised as a contract matter. Afterward Danny Woodward, utilities committee chairman, was referring comment to others and Mayor Danny Edwards said, “We’re in an information mode. We’re just gathering information. We’re not anywhere close to taking any action.” A recent land swap has given Walhalla access to Lake Keowee for a potential water draw. The city’s last two mayors have identified securing a new water supply as the city’s greatest need.
