I spoke with the representative from DHEC today at the testing site at Wild Water and Wheels.  She stated that again, we had a great turnout of people coming to be tested.  Today there were over one hundred people tested.  They also stated that because of the high turnout, they will be returning next Friday, November 6th.  A special thanks to DHEC and the National Guard for their contribution to help keep our residents safe.


Today the Town Council held a Special Meeting to have an Executive Session to interview a prospective Town Administrator.  A motion was made as a result of the Executive Session to direct the Interim Town Administrator to further vet this candidate.  We look forward to the results.


Please make sure that you vote… Remember Tuesday, November 3rd is election day…. 


Have a great weekend…..Be Safe…. Wear a Mask … Thank You … Mayor Bob Hellyer
