Conservation group files new enchantment over I-526 extension task

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A new charm has been submitted about the I-526 extension project.

The Coastal Conservation League and two citizen plaintiffs submitted the attraction on Wednesday disputing a condition court’s conclusion to dismiss a lawsuit complicated Charleston County’s use of fifty percent-cent gross sales tax money for the extension of I-526 to Johns and James islands.

“We at first filed the lawsuit in June 2019 for the reason that Charleston County Council promised voters it would not use those people funds for the freeway extension, then turned all over and did just that. The county broke a agreement with voters. It was accurate then and it stays accurate now,” reported Coastal Conservation League Government Director Laura Cantral in a assertion Thursday.

Cantal said the group thinks Charleston County citizens, residents, and taxpayers “have the appropriate to challenge the county’s actions.”

“The residents of Charleston County have earned a federal government that is transparent and genuine, just one that follows by way of on its claims and that citizens can have confidence in. We will keep on to struggle to make sure that Charleston County is that variety of authorities,” reported Cantral.
