NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WRDW) -- North Augusta City Council voted to allow city officials to take all action necessary in regard to the recently filed TIF lawsuit about Project Jackson.
The resolution passed with a 7-0 vote Monday evening.
It includes the authorization for the Mayor and City Administrator to possibly file counterclaims against the Plaintiffs.
The city council issued a statement saying, "While it is not the desire of the City of North August to file a lawsuit against the River Club Homeowners Association (RCHOA), the recent action filed on behalf of the RCHOA forces the City to move to resolve this issue quickly so as to protect the sizeable investment that benefits our entire city and region. While we realize that there are those in the RCHOA who oppose the lawsuit filed on their behalf, unfortunately they cannot be individually removed from the suit. It is our hope that this can be resolved as quickly as possible to allow the project to remain on track."
