Goose Creek annexation vote on Tuesday

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A vote to annex parts of Berkeley County by the city of Goose Creek happens on Tuesday.  If you live in the annex you can vote on the issue.

Some business owners are upset about the annexation because it would put different requirements on their business.

Grippie Lawson has owned his fireworks stand for 37 years.  If the annex vote passes, he may be forced to close his doors.

"I've been working at this stand since I was 11 years old.  It makes up one third of my income," said Lawson.

The vote is happening at Goose Creek on Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The territory up for annexation includes all parcels of land located on Plainfleld Avenue; all parcels on Cranford Road; 1 Elmora Avenue; 1 & 2 Aldene Avenue; 1 & 2 Roselle Avenue; 2 Prestwick Circle; 285 Garwood Road; Eastward from 1056 Red Bank Road to Pomflant Access Road extending Southward along the Eastern portion of Henry E. Brown Jr. Boulevard terminating at the corporate limit of the City of Hanahan and Northward along Henry E. Brown Jr. Boulevard to Elmora Avenue.
