As reported 41 years ago in The Columbia News, Thursday, July 9, 1964:
Cleanup contract awarded
Luke's Garbage Disposal of Evans was the apparent low bidder for year-round cleaning service in Group 2 (Little River) at Clarks Hill Lake.
The Savannah District Engineers received 19 bids covering three different areas. The Evans firm bid $13,133 to provide year-round cleaning from the Clarks Hill recreation area at the dam site to Big Hart Creek Park, an area of 247.5 acres.
Milk plant coming
Brothers Buddy and Donald Tankersley of Evans are co-owners of a new dairy business. The milk processing plant is under construction on Belair Road.
The plant is expected to be in full operation by Sept. 1, 1964. Initially, the two will process milk from their own 519-acre farm and retail the product. The Tankersleys normally milk from 90-95 cows daily and produce 400 gallons of milk.
Their father, Luther Tankersley Sr., has produced milk for other dealers and distributors for many years.
Columbia County commissioners passed a resolution last month requiring sub-division developers to pay a fee of $10 per lot to meet the cost of an inspection of streets, curbs and gutters.
The resolution also states that the county will no longer participate in constructing streets in residential sub-divisions and proposed residential sub-divisions.
All future sub-divisions and expansions of sub-divisions are to have paved streets, curbs and gutters, which are to be constructed by the developer.
