About Our County Council
Edgefield County Council is responsible for governing the county. Members of County Council hold two year terms and are part of a leadership team that is responsible for guiding the county’s growth, development, health and safety. They are responsible for identifying and communicating the direction in which the county should move. County Council is also responsible for adopting the policies and budgets that will move the county in that direction. One of the tools Edgefield County Council uses to move the county in the correction direction is the Strategic Plan. They re-evaluate and adopt a new plan every 5 years to be sure it is adapting with the county’s needs. This document takes into consideration the wants and needs for the citizens and key stakeholders in the community.
County Council meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM. County Council meetings are held in the County Council Chambers located at 225 Jeter Street in Edgefield (behind the Courthouse). The public is always welcome. Please see the next County Council meeting agenda to the right.
From Left to Right: Chairman Scott Cooper, Dean Campbell, Vice Chairman Albert Talbert, Dr. Jacqueline Kennion, and Arthur Biggs.
