July 1, 2018, began the new fiscal budget year, and our goal is “Full Steam Ahead."
County Council has provided us with the resources and tools to accomplish the task set forth for our new year.
Along with providing the day-to-day tasks for the citizens of Sumter County, your County workforce is engaged in a couple of major community efforts.
- Under the supervision of the Public Works Director, Sumter County will pave and resurface more than eight (8) miles of roads over the next couple of months.
- Recreation and Park staff will oversee the new development of Dillon Park. The new Football Complex will be one-of-a-kind in South Carolina and will feature three state-of-the-art football fields with a new concession and pavilion area.
- Work will finally get underway at the Lafayette/Main Street intersection that will vastly improve the traffic flow off Pike Road and Highway 378 bypass.
- In August we will open the Patriot Pavilion at Patriot Park. This new structure located between the two ponds at Patriot Park will have many community functions along with local rentals for weddings, receptions, trainings, and other meeting activities for up to 100 people.
There are many other construction projects that will begin in months to come. Please follow all of the archives on our new Sumter County Web page rolling out in August. With video feeds and aerial drone footage, this new web design will be exciting and informative.
