Elliott Summey, former chair of Charleston County Council, has yet to hand over invoices, receipts and truck counts two years after a multi-million-dollar sand-mining project in Awendaw, according to a story in Saturday’s P&C.

The town had hoped the deal would help to create and pay for a lake that would become the centerpiece of a new park.
