Survey may cost a few minutes of time, but will save money
In the 1950s much work was done in the local area as new residents poured in from across the nation. From new housing to sewer and water lines, the "boom" felt across the region was significant.
Now, more than 60 years later, many of those improvements and additions are failing.
Sewer lines are some of the worst, for obvious reasons.
The solutions are not as easy but are very expensive.
To help repair and replace water system lines in part of the city, city officials are hoping to apply for a Community Development Block Grant, but they will need the help of residents.
A survey is being mailed to all residents in the Peachtree Gardens, Elberta Circle, Hagood Avenue, Colonial Drive and Oak Lane areas of the city. This survey is a requirement by the S.C. Commerce Department as a part of the grant process.
It is vital for residents to fill out the surveys and return them as soon as possible.
You can mail them back or stop by City Hall to drop them off.
And it will not cost residents even postage as a self addressed stamped envelope will be included.
So when your household survey arrives, take a few minutes to fill it out and drop it back into the mail to the city.
Help us qualify for a grant to refurbish the city's water system lines. Better infrastructure means a better city to live in.
