Fellow Citizens of South Congaree:  

It is unbelievable that we are about to enter the holiday season and will soon begin a new year!  

 

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2022.  For Lexington County, early voting sites are 

open until November 5th, Monday – Saturday 8:30 – 6 PM at the County Voter Registration and Elections Office, Midlands Tech (B/L campus and Harbison campus), Pelion Branch Library and W. Columbia Community Center.  Please exercise your right to vote on November 8, 2022!  

 

The latest Team Up 2 Cleanup was a successful day of cleaning up litter on the streets in our 

town!  There were 26 volunteers that picked up a total of 30 bags, 2 tires and an old mailbox on 

Saturday, August 27.  Everyone’s efforts to help keep the Town of South Congaree clean are greatly 

appreciated!  

 

The Town has contracted with SAFEbuilt to provide building inspections, zoning and code enforcement 

effective July 1, 2022.   We appreciate Lexington County’s assistance to our citizens while we were 

without a Building Official and are excited to now offer this service once again.    

 

Thank you to Mr. Mike Bagley and SCDOT Lexington Maintenance for repairing the sidewalk on South 

Congaree’s main street.  The repair looks great and provides a safe place for citizens to walk. 

 

We are excited to welcome back Officer Sharpe to the South Congaree Police Department.  We are 

fortunate and very thankful to have an experienced team.  We appreciate all they do to protect and serve! 

 

A BIG shout out to Congaree Cares for drawing the biggest crowd yet to enjoy their 

annual Spooktacular event!  There were approximately 2,100 people that came out to enjoy this past 

Saturday night’s community fun.  Thank you to all the volunteers for your time, efforts and hard work!
