NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - Future development at Riverside Village will have to wait a little longer — again.

For a second time, North Augusta leaders were set to auction off seven vacant lots at Riverside Village, but the hearing was postponed.

The first hearing was postponed last month after lawyers asked for a continuance to either pay up or reach an agreement with the bank.

News 12 learned that this time, both parties were pulled into a room to talk with the judge prior to the hearing. After that, the clerk withdrew it from the agenda.

The new date for the auction is Sept. 7.

Right now, developers owe the city over $3 million.

Back in August, the city seized the properties from Greenstone Hammond Ferry Development for failure to pay taxes.
