Historic Agreement

The chairmen of four county councils met in Hampton on Friday, December 12, for the signing of a multi-county revenue sharing agreement, which states that the citizens of Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell and Hampton Counties will share the tax revenue from future economic development projects in the region. The agreement, which had been duly passed by each of the four county councils over the last few months, was initiated to strengthen collaboration among the counties and provide an additional incentive to companies to bring their jobs to the Southern Carolina region of South Carolina.

“Job creation and capital investment are critical to expanding our tax base and improving our services at the local level,” said Bamberg County Council Chairman Chris Wilson. “This agreement allows our county to benefit from every project in the region and increases our marketing appeal to prospective industries.”
