Holly Springs Police To Get License Plate Reader

With the approval from the Holly Springs City Council, the city's police department will proceed with purchasing a four-camera license plate reader.

The Holly Springs City Council voted to approve the purchase of a license plate reader during its meeting on Thursday.

The council gave its stamp of approval for the Holly Springs Police Department to purchase a Vigilant Video four-camera license plate reader for $25,160 from Synergistic Software, Inc. 

The council also heard from County Commisison Chairman Buzz Ahrens, who discussed the Cherokee Office of Economic Development.

Ahrens told the council that CoED needs an additional employee and funding to advertise and participate in trade shows and state meetings.

He also said CoED would like funds to build up a local incentive fund. 

Ahrens has asked each city in Cherokee County to make a financial contribution to CoED's budget with a three-year commitment.  

Holly Springs Mayor Tim Downing said the council would have to further discuss tax equity issues, possible competition betweens the county and its cities tax and possibly revamping the Cherokee County Development Authority to allow each city to have a representative on the board.

Council member Karen Barnett was not present.
