The Cherokee County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday confirmed the previous unofficial vote count making James Peck the winner of the ward 1 Cherokee City Council seat.
Peck, the only candidate on the ballot, received 33 of the 53 votes cast in the special election on July 11. Doug Woods, who filled the vacancy as an interim councilman after Bill Troth's death earlier this year, received 12 of the write-in votes.
The supervisors approved a letter of support for Renee Braun, NRCS director, who is applying for a grant for wild life habitat improvement.
The grant would help eliminate cedar trees which are becoming a nuisance in the county, crowding out better habitat vegetation.
The supervisors will consider a proposal from Mark Buschkamp of the Cherokee Area Economic Development Corporation, for a tax rebate policy for farmers converting to organic grown crops.
