COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A proposed multi-million dollar student housing complex for Columbia’s Bull Street site will not be awarded tax incentives from Richland County following a Tuesday night vote against the plan.

Haven Campus Communities LLC has been looking at putting the $40 million complex off of Calhoun Street not far from Spirit Communications Park.

If it had been approved, the tax credit would have helped reimburse the company for building costs.

Richland County Council members against the idea argued the Bull Street site has already received enough support from taxpayers, including with the cost of building the ballpark itself.

The final vote was 6 to 5 against the tax credit. Council members Bill Malinowski, Seth Rose, Joyce Dickerson, Dalhi Myers, Greg Pearce, and Julie-Ann Dixon were against. Council members Norman Jackson, Damon Jeter, Paul Livingston, Jim Manning and chairman Torrey Rush voted for the tax credit.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
