PICKENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -An ordinance to remove the road fee that residents pay passed its final reading on Monday night.
The council voted 5-1 in favor of the decision. This decision included an amendment that removed an agreement between the county and the cities. The previous agreement said that the county would help fund county roads that ran through cities.
Earlier this year, a South Carolina Supreme Court ruling stated that road fees were illegal. This decision forced the Pickens County Council to start repealing their road fee.
The process started on July 26 when the council proposed an ordinance to repeal the fee.
