South Congaree, SC (Paul Kirby) The installation of the new Town of South Congaree sign is almost complete. It has been erected on Main Street between Ramblin Road and Pine Street on the Citgo side.
This has been a dream of the town’s leadership for many years. During the administration that served prior to the spring 2016 elections, they struggled to bring the sign project to fruition. Eventually, all the dissention was sorted out and the order for the sign that cost about $40,000 was ordered. It was built by Concepts Unlimited, a Columbia, SC company.
It was installed on property owned by the Lexington Medical Center. They agreed to allow the town to install the sign on their property, provided that it was put in a spot that wouldn’t interfere with any future plans that they may have for the site. That is why it was not located closer to the Main and Ramblin intersection where the town has a Christmas tree on the LMC property as well.
The new sign has a digital message board that is programable. It will display information regarding the town meetings and upcoming community events. Once the electrical service is connected, the sign should be completed and ready to go.
The community and its leadership would like to thank the LMC administration, the current mayor and town council, and past mayor and council for their hard work in this nice addition to the community. Also, thanks to Lexington County Councilman Bobby Keisler, Senator Katrina Shealy, and Representative Mac Toole for their efforts throughout the project to eventually make it a reality.
