'A classy affair': LHS graduation by Jeff Byrd

Here’s a list of upcoming meetings and events for area nonprofit community and governmental organizations:

The new Landrum High School on Friday evening graduated its first class to enter the new school as freshman, one hundred and four students who expressed eagerness to start the next phase of their lives. The commencement exercises, held in the Landrum High School gymnasium, were a “classy

affair” this year, Landrum high School Principal Brian Sherman said Monday. “It was one of our best graduations ever,” he remarked. “There was no hollering. It was really a classy ceremony. You don’t see that so much anymore.” (Continued on page 3)

Water/sewer rates to rise in Tryon New debt means almost $150k shortfall next year by Leah Justice

Tryon residents will likely see a rise in water and sewer rates soon. The increase will be needed to cover more than $300,000 in new debt.

Tryon Town Manager Justin Hembree has proposed a 10.45 percent increase in water rates and an 8.04 percent increase in sewer rates. Tryon Town Council said Tuesday the proposal was too high and directed Hembree to look for additional savings in the budget and cut the rate hike in half. Tryon is faced next fiscal year with its first debt service pay-

Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties

ments on about $3 million for water plant upgrades. The annual payments will be $275,415. The town is also faced next year with another $31,473 in debt service for the joint water line between Saluda and Tryon for backup water sources between Tryon, Columbus and Saluda. Colum(Continued on page 4)

Caroline Cann, student council president, said she thought the Class of 2010 had done pretty well in founding a new school student body. “I honestly think we have broken in this school in the finest way possible,” Cann said, “with state championships, high test scores and memories that will last far beyond the final bell.” It was good to be the first freshman class entering the new facility south of Landrum four years ago, said Salutatorian Rosaruth Parton. “We didn’t get picked on as much,” she said, “because everyone was just as busy as we were trying to find their way around this brand new school.” Students met new friends and made friends with those they had not known before, Parton said. “The kids who went to Campobello mixed easily with those who grew up around Landrum,” she pointed out in her salutatory address. “As we were joined by a couple Floridians and “John from

Tryon says Columbus should pump sewage to Tryon by Leah Justice

Tryon officials said this week that Columbus would save money by pumping its sewer to Tryon for treatment. Tryon council mentioned Tuesday that it would be interested in treating Columbus’ sewer. Tryon is facing a shortfall of more than $40,000 next year in its sewer department. Columbus recently agreed to apply for a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) grant and loan to upgrade its aged sewer plant, but will not be committed to the upgrades until the USDA comes back to the town with a proposal. Columbus’ upgrade project has been estimated at about $3.6 million, with part of that being loaned and another por-

bus and Saluda will also have annual debt service of $31,473 for the line. Hembree told council that even though there will be over $306,888 in new debt for the water department, the town is looking at an $109,448 shortfall in the department next year. To break even, water rates would have to rise by 10.45 percent, which would mean about a $2.93 per month increase for an inside city limit residential customer and an $8.59 per month increase for an outside city limit residential customer. The town is facing a $40,401 shortfall in the sewer department and Hembree said to overcome that shortfall an 8.04 percent increase is needed. That increase would mean an average increase of $3.19 per month for an inside city limit residential customer and a $10.14 increase for an outside city limit residential customer. Councilman Austin Chapman said Tuesday that if there are any additional cuts possible, the town should explore those prior to going to customers to make up the shortfall. Councilman Roy Miller agreed and said the town should cut wherever it can before going to its citizens.

tion granted from the USDA. Tryon officials roughly estimated Tuesday that Columbus could save considerably by pumping its sewer to Tryon for treatment. That joint effort could also save Tryon money because it would spread the costs of running the sewer plant over a larger customer base. Approximately two miles separate Columbus’ sewer lines at the Polk County Library and Tryon’s lines at the former Grover plant in Lynn. Tryon Public Works Director Joel Burrell says two pumps would most likely be needed with each pump costing about $100,000. Those costs plus (Continued on page 5)

Tryon Mayor Alan Peoples then told Hembree that a goal for him should be to reduce the increases by half for both water and sewer rates. Several years ago the town adopted a slow phase of rate increases to cover the debt it knew was coming this year for the rehab of the water plant. The town has implemented increases over the past several years in order to cover the debt, but Hembree said Tuesday that the drought a few years ago and having three managers during the time period threw the projections off. “A lot of things changed and sort of created the perfect storm,” Hembree said. “Since the drought and mandatory water restrictions, people have maintained using less water and usage has dropped.” The town is looking at no tax increases for next fiscal year, which begins July 1, but is looking at cutting garbage service to one day per week for residential customers and five days per week for commercial customers. Currently the town picks up residential garbage twice per week and commercial six days per week. Changes in debris collection are also being considered. Tryon will have another budget work session on June 14 at 6 p.m. A public hearing on the final proposed budget will be held later this month.
