Amend Title To Conform
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the City of Aiken may not, by ordinance or otherwise, impose upon a customer receiving water, sewer, or fire protection services from the City of Aiken whose property is without the corporate limits of the City of Aiken, or upon a subsequent purchaser, assignee, transferee, or other successor in interest to the property served, a requirement that the customer refrain from opposing annexation as a condition of continued receipt of water, sewer, or fire protection services, if the City of Aiken has:
(1) extended water, sewer, or fire protection services to the customer, pursuant to a contractual agreement which did not contain a clause or provision prohibiting the customer from opposing annexation if such property becomes contiguous to the City of Aiken; or
(2) extended such services to the customer under any circumstances without any specific agreement with respect to annexation.
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
