County Heritage funds measure closer to approval

BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) - The Beaufort County Council wants to give the Heritage golf tournament another $1 million. That's on top of the $1 million they've already given for this year's tournament.

The ordinance passed first reading last night. It must still go through two more votes before becoming official. The county giving this money is part of a proposal to save the PGA Tour event using a $30 million mix of state, local and private money.
