Sewer Grant

The sewer’s not cool or fun. So nobody really wants to talk about the sewer. Except maybe me. If you’ve been following this page since I was elected, you know I’ve been talking about it since 2016 when I found out how far behind we were on sewer maintenance and rehab. We had to make some tough decisions to get back on track, but we’ve made so much progress. So today I’m excited to talk about the sewer once more. Because we were just awarded a $500,000 grant for sewer rehabilitation from the S.C. Rural Infrastructure Authority (RIA). These are competitive infrastructure grants, so kudos to our city staff for writing a winning application. And even if nobody wants to talk about it, the sewer is really important, and we need to ensure we plan for its future and never let things get as bad as they were before.
