Sumter County has begun its recovery process in the wake of the recent Winter Storm. On Monday, February 24th, debris removal contractors will begin removing storm related yard waste from the public right-of-way. Residents are asked to place any storm-related vegetative yard debris on the public right-of-way. The public right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement. This area does include City, County, and State Rights-of-Way. This does not include private drives.
Funded by a three-way partnership of Sumter County Government, the City of Sumter and the Sumter Smarter Growth Initiative, the Development Board’s mission is to increase per capita income by creating jobs and luring capital investment to our community.
