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.
The regularly scheduled meeting of Sumter County Council for Tuesday February 11, 2014, will be held as scheduled. Should the weather change drastically between now and the time of Council’s meeting, the Chairman will make a determination whether or not to cancel the meeting.
Highlights: The Sumter County Gallery of Art opens the New Year with two special exhibitions: The 36th annual “South Carolina Watermedia Society Traveling Exhibition” and the “Sumter Artists’ Guild Winners Show”. The South Carolina Watermedia Society (SCWS) is the largest statewide visual arts guild with a mission to promote South Carolina artists by providing exhibition opportunities and educational programs. The 2013 SCWS show is an especially vibrant one.
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.
