• Lynches River Co-Op rezoning advances

    The plan by the Lynches River Electric Co-Op to build a new headquarters took a conditional step forward last week with the Pageland Town Council’s preliminary approval of a rezoning.

    The Town Board voted unanimously on first reading to rezone the property from single-family residential to limited industrial despite the fact that it has no recommendation yet from a deadlocked Town Planning Commission. The Planning Commission tied 3-3 on a motion to grant the rezoning, forcing it to take another crack at the proposal next week.

  • Check snafu latest co-op headache

    Some 7,000 checks sent out to Lynches River Electric Co-Op customers last week contained a printing error that made them non-negotiable at most banks.

    As a result, the checks, worth a total of $461,000, have to be either returned to the co-op or taken to First Palmetto Savings Bank, which agreed to process them.

    “We’ve got the replacement checks here and when they come in we replace them,” co-op CEO David Altman said.
