New Fire Chief Mixon Takes Oath of Office
At the April 10 Town Council meeting, Mayor Haynie and Mount Pleasant Town Council invited Mike Mixon to take the oath of office as new fire chief. A 14-year veteran with the Mount Pleasant Fire Department, Mixon moved up the ranks from the position of firefighter to his later assignment of deputy chief of administration. Mixon takes over from Fire Chief Herb Williams, who is retiring this summer after 32 faithful years of service to the Town of Mount Pleasant.

Public Services New Automated Garbage Trucks
The Public Services Department Waste Management Division is transitioning to fully-automated garbage trucks. These trucks will save taxpayer dollars and increase the efficiency of garbage collection while providing the same great quality of service. The Town will receive the first two trucks this summer. To prepare collection routes for these new trucks, we need to replace existing rollcarts with carts that are compatible with the new automated trucks. Details about this exciting transition will be shared in the next few days.
