Town Administrator's E-Brief


From Town Administrator, Eric DeMoura           Town of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

April 2019
Dear Mount Pleasant residents and business owners,
Our annual Blessing of the Fleet and Seafood Festival is this coming weekend. It is a family favorite celebrating our local seafood industry. This year, the weekend has a new opening event with Mayor Haynie's inaugural Mayor's Music & Art Program on Friday afternoon at Town Hall. I invite each of you to attend, listen to some wonderful music, meet members of our Culture, Arts & Pride Commission and browse the new artwork on display at Town Hall. It will be a full and fun weekend.
There are several other upcoming meetings and events scheduled for the next month, so I invite you to sign up to our Notify Me module and stay updated on the latest Town news, projects, and events. For more information about all that is happening in the Town of Mount Pleasant, please visit us online, engage with us on Nextdoor, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter.

Rain Barrel Benefits

Rain barrels are a great way to harvest rain water that falls on your property. This water can later be used around your home for gardening and other chores. Harvesting rain water not only helps reduce runoff and flooding on your property, but it can also save you money on your utility bill! The rain barrel sale is going on NOW. Click HERE to learn more about purchasing.

Learn more about the benefits of rain barrels and how to install your own HERE.
