Larry Harper and George Sheppard were sworn in to their council seats at Monday Nights Tega Cay Council Meeting.
The first order of business was the possible annexation of Gold Hill Elementary and Middle school. A motion was passed to approve an easement that would allow the city to have adjacency claim to the school. The second motion was to annex the schools land. It was explained by Mayor Runde that the annexation process must have 2 council meeting readings and votes. Monday night was the first reading and vote. The council plans to have the second reading and vote next week. The schools will benefit with increased city provided services and the city will benefit with 2 extra police offers that will be able to focus on the lake and city patrols during the summer months the schools are closed.
The schools will still be managed by the Fort Mill School District.
Mayor Bob Runde said the projected opening of the new Tega Cay Wal-Mart is March 17th 2008. The projected opening of the new community center under construction next to the Tega Cay golf club house is planed to open April 13th, 2008.
