N.A. gains acre at City Coucil meeting
North Augusta is almost an acre larger, in the wake of an unusually brief North Augusta City Council meeting held Monday evening.
Unanimous third-reading approval went to a proposal for annexing a .87-acre tract at 6021 Jefferson Davis Highway - property owned by John L. Murray III and adjoining Greg's Gas Plus.
The meeting's only other business item was a request to annex a 2.57-acre parcel at 1443 Hammond Park Road, owned by Jerrald R. Sinquefield. The proposal won unanimous first-reading approval. The meeting lasted about 15 minutes.
