A new public works building for the town of Irmo has been added to the list of projects the town will submit for funding by the Lexington County penny sales tax.
The project will be included in a proposal that also includes two other requests: improvements to the Thames Valley Road intersection with St. Andrews Road, and the Lake Murray Boulevard intersection with Woodrow Street and Saint Andrews Road.
As the council set priorities for the list of three projects, the public works building came in third. Improvements at the tangled Woodrow Street and Lake Murray Boulevard intersection were listed first, and the Thames Valley Road intersection improvements, second.
In other action, the council discussed a proposal to add additional parking spaces for the town’s new Community Park of Irmo, which is already drawing a lot of people.
Lexington Extends Police Chief's Contract
At its Feb. 4 meeting, Lexington Town Council gave first reading approval for a contract extension for Lexington Police Chief Terrence Green.
Green, who has served since 2006, had his contract renewed by a unanimous first reading vote of Council. Town officials said Green has a three-year, moving contract that adds back an additional year after a positive vote by council. Council is expected to vote on a second and final reading of the ordinance updating Green’s contract at the March 3 council meeting.
