Development company The Landmark Group is up to bat again as the prospective buyer of the old Seminole Mill site in Clearwater. On Tuesday, Aiken County Council will hear first reading of a proposed ordinance to allow the sale of the 14.8-acre mill site to The Landmark Group, which has proposed building apartment- and condo-style housing on the land. The group is seeking housing tax credits from the state to help fund the redevelopment. Last year, County Council put into place an option-to-sell agreement with the group as it had expressed interest in the dilapidated site. At the time, the proposed sale price was $100,000, and The Landmark Group estimated it would take roughly $8 million to redevelop the site. However, the group never received the same tax credits it is seeking now, and the option-to-sell agreement lapsed in September. With the agreement defunct, the County issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) from firms interested in redeveloping the site, and The Landmark Group responded again. County Council will also consider a budget amendment that would add additional emergency services positions to the budget and put more ambulances on the road. Council's Judicial and Public Safety Committee has recommended adding 15 emergency services positions to the budget, putting five more ambulances in operation and adding two quick response vehicles to the fleet. The additional positions would bring the county's total up to 73 emergency medical technicians with a net budget increase of $715,000. "The least we need to do is get all (10) stations covered by personnel," said Councilman Gary Bunker. In other business Tuesday, Council will hear first reading of a proposed ordinance to set closing times for establishments in the county which serve alcoholic beverages for on-the-premises consumption. The proposed closing time is 2 a.m. Monday through Friday and 11:59 p.m. on Saturdays. Aiken County Council will meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. in chambers located at 736 Richland Ave.
