Jamie Gilbert, director of the county’s new Economic Development Department, predicted 1,200 new jobs and $50 million in new investment will likely be announced within the first six months of 2017.

In order to assess recent statements and representations by Voters for a Town of Indian Land, several of us residents have asked TOIL leaders for a detailed, line-by-line budget for a town of Indian Land.
