Commissioners grant waiver contingent upon DA approval

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners, during an April 1 meeting, granted a waiver and release for encroachment and construction to 10-acres of property on Clyde Maher Road contingent upon approval from the District Attorney's Office.

Jasen Wright, owner of Century 21 Wright Real Estate, said commissioners approved a waiver back in 2006 and the issue makes it to where the title insurance can't be obtained, the buyer can't get mortgage, and the home can't be sold any other way except for cash.

"You can see that the house is encroached over the section line and so there are a few of these in and around the county," Wright said. "I'm very familiar with one we had on Horseshoe Bend Road and we did a document in 2006."

The waiver will allow that the title insurance and mortgage can be obtained. Wright said the property on Horseshoe Bend Road has been sold five times since 2006.

"So this clears the mortgage and fixes the problems. Once you do it this time, it forever runs with it and takes care of things," he said.

The board gave its nod to a resolution to accept and deposit funds from Cherokee Nation into Lodging Tax account to be appropriated into an account to be used for trash bags and teaching supplies to promote non-littering and beautification.

In other business, the board declared Fair Housing Month in April and approved the Fair Housing Month proclamation.

District 3 Commissioner Clif Halls’ request for approval for claim of parcels and right-of-ways for a project on Indian Road was granted.

All claims, purchase orders, blanket purchase orders, appropriations, and transfers were approved.

What's next

The next Board of Cherokee County Commissioners meeting is slated for Monday, April 15, at 9 a.m., at the Cherokee County Courthouse.
