When I came into office, the state of the Public Works Department was such that we had no other choice but to contract some of its services. Since then, we have been working towards fiscally responsible long-term planning for sustainable quality services in Simpsonville. Because of that planning, we were able to vote tonight to have Public Works take over trash collection, effective September. A lot of time and work went into getting us to this place. I am confident that our Public Works Department now has the resources and support it needs to provide high quality, dependable customer service—not just this year or next year or the year after…but long after my term on Council has ended.
