Ballentine Trying To Become A Town

Recommended Posts


Isn't it interestting how the suburban town (Irmo) that didn't want the metro city (Cola) to extend it's borders is now worried that it won't be able to extend it's own borders.

Karma is one word for it.

I dont really know how I feel about this. I see the positives and negatives of both sides. I guess ultimately it comes down to local control over issues... but then, they coudl jsut annex into Irmo and have more centralized government in the NW suburbs.

Most incorporation efforts don't. But it is no doubt more likely now that the population threshold has been lowered from 15,000 to 7,000, thanks to Sen. McConnell.

Quick! Call in the reinforcements before more of the prisoners escape! We need fewer incorporated towns, not more. Has no one out there ever heard of economies of scale?

There is really no reason for Forest Acres, Dentsville, or Arcadia Lakes to exist as incorporate municipalities. There is definitely more of a justification for Irmo's existence.

Sorry about the confusion concerning Dentsville.

A zoo on North Main in the early 1900's? Wow, who would have thunk....was it in what was then the town of Eau Claire?

Thats a well written article. I agree with it 100%. We want less government, not more. Irmo can provide that local control if they really want it.
