Walhalla OKs pair of Streetscape motions

After an executive session, Walhalla City Council approved a pair of motions designed to get its Streetscape project moving. Passed was a motion to suspend a memorandum of understanding with contractor Town and Country Construction until a final cost estimate for the project is worked out. According to Nancy Goehle, city administrator, Walhalla reserves the option of bring back Town and Country, if the city so chooses. That motion was followed by one to allow the landscape engineer company, Seamon Whiteside, to work with Trehel Corporation of Clemson to assist in bringing Streetscape in under budget. Trehel, a contracting company with which Walhalla businessman Neal Workman is affiliated, is to do the work at no charge to the city. Goehle says both motions last night passed unanimously.
