Timmonsville ordered to submit financial information

A judge has given the Town of Timmonsville 15 days to submit information on its finances and other matters needed in a lawsuit filed against it for unpaid legal fees, according to Mark Buyck, III.

The law firm that used to represent the town, Willcox, Buyck and Williams Law Firm in Florence, filed a judgment against Timmonsville in February 2012 but was still unable to collect $151,221.99 in unpaid legal fees.

It then sued last July.

The Willcox, Buyck and Williams Law Firm represented the town for five years before its services were terminated last February.

Buyck said the town has yet to pay his firm one dime.
