Reversing an earlier decision not to submit projects for the Lexington County penny sales tax, the Irmo Town Council voted at its Jan. 21 meeting to request funding for three different proposals.
Mayor Hardy King said the new project submissions are different from those that were being proposed two weeks ago and deserved the town’s support.
The projects include long-sought improvements to the Rawls Creek flooding and drainage problems, improvements on a Thames Valley Court intersection in Irmo, and a traffic synchronization project on S.C. Highway 60.
The town only has 10 days to submit the projects, but King said preliminary work has already been done on all of the proposals and it would not be difficult to put the package together.
Town officials said the Rawls Creek project would become part of the same drainage improvement project Lexington County is proposing, which town officials say would make it a feasible choice when the selection committee weeds through all of the proposals.
Chapin Advertises Job for Mayor’s Assistant
The town of Chapin is now advertising the position of mayor’s assistant, even though new Mayor Skip Wilson has already offered the job to Chapin Chamber CEO Karen Owens.
The town council would not approve Wilson’s selection because he had not been sworn into office when he made the offer. After an executive session Jan. 17, the council voted to advertise the new position. Owens reportedly has submitted her resume.
