NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW) -- The North Augusta City Council is giving the green light for an Augusta company to move its headquarters across the Savannah River.

Tonight was the third and final reading to authorize a land swap between the city and Medac and Greenstone Properties. Basically, city leaders voted to give the company a little more than an acre of property so the project can move forward. In return, Medac will pay the city back by giving up land roughly the same size a little later down the road.

The vote was unanimous.

Medac plans to bring 200 jobs to North Augusta with this move. Leaders say Project Jackson had a lot to do with attracting the medical billing company to the South Carolina Riverfront. City Manager Todd Glover says the city will allow Medac to use a planned parking deck that is already in the works. Glover was not at tonight's meeting. City Councilman David McGhee tells News 12 he's at a conference working to attract even more businesses to North Augusta.
