Mayor’s Message June/July 2022 

 

Fellow Citizens of South Congaree: 

 

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Teresa Benjamin, Municipal Clerk to the Town of South Congaree!  Ms. Benjamin began on Tuesday, June 14th.  She is a certified Municipal Clerk and comes to us with 10+ years of experience.  We are fortunate and excited to have her!   

 

Council voted to retain the Certified Accounting & Advising firm of Greene Finney Cauley, LLP, to provide financial services for the fiscal year 2023 beginning July 1, 2022, and ending June 30, 2023.  They will provide accounting services, tax services, payroll, and consulting services.  This is another step forward for our Town, knowing they will ensure the Town complies with the laws and regulations applicable to its activities; prevent and detect fraud and ensure accuracy and completeness of the records, documents, explanations, and all other financial information.  

 

We are pleased to report that the South Congaree Championship Rodeo held July 22 and 23 was a big success!  The Rodeo brings thousands of visitors to our town and their patronage to our local restaurants and stores is very much appreciated.   

 

The Town of South Congaree received the Keep the Midlands Beautiful Award for 2021!  This is an honor since we were selected from 250 groups in Lexington County for the Adopt-a-Highway Award.  On June 28th, WIS TV Anchor, Dawndy Mercer Plank invited former Police Officer Allen Sharpe and me to talk about the efforts that South Congaree started two years ago.  The quarterly Team Up 2 Cleanup South Congaree efforts have been recognized.  Thank you!   


Council voted and passed a Resolution for a Technical Assistance Agreement between the Town of South Congaree and Central Midlands Council of Governments to update the Town's Comprehensive Plan to be completed no later than August 1, 2023.  This is another step forward for the Town of South Congaree!  

 

The next Team Up 2 Cleanup will be Saturday, August 27th.  You are invited to join us at the Town Hall at 9 a.m. to pick up gloves, grabbers, vests, and trash bags.   Thank you for your support and assistance to make South Congaree a cleaner and safer place to live.  


You are invited to attend the Town Council meetings on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.  Town Council meetings will continue to be livestreamed via the Town's Facebook. 

 

Thank you for your continuing encouragement and support as we work together to make South Congaree the best small town in South Carolina! 

Cindy Campbell, Mayor
