Hardeeville Annexation Could Triple Size

If you head north on Highway 17, you run right into Hardeeville, in Jasper County. And it's about to get a lot bigger. Two land owners want to add their property along Highway 278 to the city. It's about seven square miles and would triple the size of the town.

"There's no question these pieces of property are key and integral to the future, not just five years, but for the next 50 years," said city administrator Shane Haynes.

Town council is considering the issue today. If it passes the first reading, they'll start negotiations with landowners about the specifics.
