May and Mike Bagley, SC DOT, for their prompt response and assistance when we reached out for assistance to request a Deer Crossing sign be installed on Ramblin Road. Representative May and Mr. Bagley were contacted after receiving calls from concerned citizens regarding the safety of those that travel Ramblin Road. Because there have been six reported requests to remove dead deer in 2022 alone this request for a Deer Crossing sign has been approved and will be installed in the next two weeks. Have you noticed the new PalmettoPride Adopt-A-Highway sign on SC-302 coming into the Town of South Congaree? Thank you to Police Officer Allen Sharpe and the many volunteers that assist with our quarterly Team Up 2 Cleanup South Congaree litter pickup events! An additional plaque will be added to the sign to display “Town of South Congaree” as the sponsor once it is received.

Call PalmettoPride’s Litter Busters Hot Line at 1-877-7-LITTER to report anyone trashing our town or other areas. Your continued support in helping clean up our town is greatly appreciated!

  • VOLUNTEER FOR COMMITTEES | Townofsouthcongaree

    Do your part to make your community a better place, be a volunteer! The Town of South Congaree is looking for people that are willing to serve on our Planning Commission & Finance Committees. These important committees have a great deal to do with the direction of our town. ​ The Planning Commission is responsible for drafting ordinances that govern the town. These are then presented to the town council which either passes them as drafted, ask the Planning Commission to make some changes, or votes the ordinances down completely. They also help develop and update a Master Plan under the direction of the mayor and town council. Planning now determines what South Congaree may be like for years to come. ​ The Finance Committee helps to keep track of the town's money. It develops an annual budget which is then presented to the town's council for changes or approval. This committee watches closely throughout the year to make sure departments are spending within the limits of their budgets. The Finance Committee also has to make suggestions about where the town's reserve funds are kept so that they best benefit the citizens of the town. ​ You do NOT have to be a resident of South Congaree to serve on boards, committees, or commissions. All that you must do is apply at the town hall, be able to pass a background check, and have a willingness to serve. Experience in Planning is helpful if you would like to serve on that committee. Perhaps you've been a developer, and architect, or held some other position that had to do with this field. ​ In order to serve on the Finance Committee, a background in accounting, bookkeeping, or banking would help. You should be able to understand a balance sheet, read profit and loss statements, and in general be good with numbers. ​ For more information about either of these positions, contact the town hall and ask for Municipal Clerk Sharon Williams.
