Food Bank auction set for Nov. 12

By Kelly Duncan -

POMARIA — Pomaria Town Council has finalized plans for an auction to be held Nov. 12 to benefit the Pomaria Food Bank.

The auction will take place from 5 p.m. until at the Old Pomaria School, 138 Folk St. New and used items, tools, household products, small appliances and more will be featured.

Concessions will be available and attendees are asked to bring a canned good for the food bank. For more information on the auction, contact Eddie Cook at 803-347-3472 or 803-837-2619.

“We really appreciate Council letting the food bank use the auditorium and facility to hold our auction,” Cook said. “We’ve handed out a good many fliers and have contacted churches in the area. If we could work out a figure on using the building, we might discuss having a monthly thing here. In other words, we would have it, but then within the guidelines and not interfering with anything else if that would be possible. We’ll just see how the first one goes and then we’ll discuss it.”

Other business:

• The financial report showed a beginning balance of $20,244.53 for the month of October. As of Oct. 31, the ending balance was 18,024.83.

• Resident Kayla Koon addressed Council about using the facility to host a Girl Scout lock-in. There is not a specific time set yet, but plans will be discussed to hold it in the Spring. Of the 30 Girl Scouts in the area, 20 attended the last lock-in and all were from the Pomaria area.

• Town Clerk Kristy Graham reported three lights were out on Holloway Street.

• Mayor Darryl Hentz requested help with the Christmas tree that is put up around Thanksgiving.

• Hentz reported a zoning ordinance change at the Old Dominick area where there are two trailers, one that burned down and the other currently vacant. The owners want to put in hook-ups for trailers/campers but the lot is not big enough. The owners are setting up a meeting to get an exemption. Based on the current zoning, the lot doesn’t meet the zoning guidelines.
