Sumter County has begun its recovery process in the wake of the recent hurricane. Debris removal contractors have begun 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. Curbside pickup will not be available on private roads.
Here we go again…. Almost one year to the date of our 1,000 Year Flood, Sumter County is damaged by a hurricane. Sumter County was very fortunate not to be hammered with the flood waters associated by Hurricane Matthew like our coast and North Carolina. My prayers go out to those that have been affected throughout this four-state event.
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.
