Housing support tabled again
For the second time in eight days, Custer County commissioners have tabled a resolution of support for a 40-unit low-income housing development north of Clinton.
“It seems like we’re dragging our feet, but we need to make sure we do it right,” said Commissioner Lyle Miller, chairing Monday’s meeting in the absence of James Covey.
Commissioners had tabled the same resolution a week earlier to seek advice from Assistant District Attorney Ricky McPhearson.
He appeared at Monday’s meeting and told them they could not legally approve it as it was written, certifying that the county would donate $14,001 to the project in cash, materials and/or services.
