BOWMAN – Bowman Town Council began its February meeting by accepting Orangeburg County’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The plan will allow the town and county to help those in need following future natural disasters.
In other business:
• Orangeburg County Litter Control is holding its annual spring challenge during the month of April. The department is asking all towns to pick a date, encourage volunteers to gather litter and report how much was collected.
Council will decide on the date for Bowman’s pickup and announce it at the next meeting.
• Waste Management is raising its garbage pickup rates and the council has raised the town’s rate by 75 cents, effective immediately.
• Councilman Shawn Glenn made a donation of $500 to the new town library for youth reading, in hopes that others will match his donation in the future.
• Councilperson Shaquetta Pelzer will be hosting a Black History Month event on Feb. 26 in one of the town’s parks. Contact her for details.
• Councilman Ike Carter will be checking the streets of Bowman for issues and has asked that people let him know of any issues they know of that they want addressed.
The next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. March 7 at town hall, located at 131 Poplar St.
