Fire station vote tabled

June 5, 2013

The community at Keowee Falls has donated property outside the gate of the home development for an Oconee County fire substation. But questions over the cost to pave a road to access the station prompted County Council to table a vote on a $219 and a half thousand dollar contract for Joel Davis Construction to construct the Keowee Falls station. “Let’s wait to the next meeting.” We’ll go back and look at the road costs,” County Administrator Scott Moulder told the council. He and assistant administrator Glenn Breed were hit with so many questions about the costs of the project that council decided to table awarding the contract. Moulder and Breed explained the proposed contract covered the building and a gravel road  and that asphalting the road would be additional. Deciphering the figures last night, County Councilman Wayne McCall said, “This is an expensive gravel road.”
