NORTH, S.C. (AP) - There’s a food fight in North in Orangeburg County.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reports (https://bit.ly/1SjmoMR ) that some residents are upset about fees the town wants for using the town square to distribute food to the needy.

The town says Faith Deliverance Center of Praise must provide a refundable $50 deposit for cleaning public restrooms and it also wants the church to have liability insurance. The church says it’s been distributing food for eight years without the fees.

Mayor Patty Carson told town council last month the fees were implemented in 2008 and will now be enforced. She had no comment for the newspaper.

A disagreement with Carson led the police chief and police officers to quit last year, leaving the town with no police force for a time.
