February 2014

I, like many of you, grew up in Lexington and my how times have changed. Each day, as I serve as your Mayor, I am reminded of the wonderful town I get to call home and now have the opportunity to lead. The Town of Lexington has been able to grow through smart infrastructure such as roads and utilities. 

We continue to make strides in each of these major investments, as they are the backbone of why Lexington continues to be a thriving place to live and work. 

In 2013, we opened a new regional pump station located at Sunset Blvd. and Beachwood Rd. This structure will assist in service of our sewer customers and help flow the material to our Joint Wastewater Treatment Plant. The state-of-the-art plant is a joint venture through the Town, City of Cayce and the Joint Municipal Water and Sewer Commission. The regional facility can process 25 million gallons per day and has helped eliminate smaller treatment facilities within the area along with septic tank systems, creating cleaner streams and lakes. The plant also allows room for proactive growth through additional residents and economic development, a trend that is forecasted to continue in the coming years. 

In addition to our utilities, the Town has been working to improve our traffic through the Road Resurfacing Project. This project has focused on providing much needed repairs and/or paving to some of our worst conditioned roads. Other traffic improvements are being addressed through our Unified Traffic Plan - Phase I, which is nearing completion, along with our Adaptive Computerized Traffic Signalization System, which will help streamline traffic through a "green light" tunnel.

Join me Monday, March 3 at 6:30pm at our Council Meeting as I deliver my State of the Town Address featuring all of our major accomplishments in 2013 and our goals for this year. You may also watch the Address live on our TWC station or On Demand.
