Berkeley County Council approved the first reading Monday night on tax agreements for two new projects that could mean new jobs for the area.

Council members agreed on a fee instead of taxes for two projects, one named "Project Bull" and the other named "Project Harp." The Volvo plant was originally called "Project Soter" before it was approved.

A Berkeley County spokesperson would not provide any hints on what type of companies or how big Projects Bull and Harp are. 

County Council also approved an incentives package for Blackbaud's expansion. The software company is expected to create 300 jobs in the county.

Council agreed the company can pay a set fee for the expansion project instead of taxes.
