Sumter County Council Tuesday evening approved one agenda item during its penultimate meeting of 2020.
Sumter City-County Zoning Administrator and Interim Planning Director Helen Roodman spoke about a request to rezone a 4.13 acre parcel at 1810 Pinewood Road from Agricultural Conservation (AC) to Neighborhood Commercial (NC).
Councilman Charles Edens recused himself from the matter.
Future commercial development would include a Dollar General, Roodman said.
No one spoke against the request during a Public Hearing. Developer Greg Googer spoke for it.
Second reading was approved.
Sumter County Administrator Gary Mixon updated Council members on Covid-19 numbers for the county, noting there have been 340 new cases since the last Council meeting two weeks ago.
The daily average of cases in Sumter County is 24, he said.
The meeting adjourned at 6:13 p.m.
