Decker Mall businesses get reprieve

Jul 27, 2011 11:33:00 AM - thestate.com
Five businesses that rent space in a strip mall purchased by Richland County for a public-safety complex are getting a partial reprieve.

Tuesday, County Council agreed to allow the five to remain at Decker Mall through the end of January. But a proposal to cut their rents in half got deferred.

A disgusted Councilman Jim Manning said, “I hear over and over about this county not being a good place to do business, and right now, if I were starting a business, I would not do it in this county.”

The five had complained they were being booted by the county, even though they stayed on Decker Boulevard while other businesses abandoned it for farther suburbs.

County leaders initially discussed giving the tenants a 90-day deadline to leave.
