Town Administrator's E-Brief


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

January 2020
Dear Mount Pleasant residents and business owners,
This past month Mayor Haynie delivered the annual State of the Town Address during which he outlined the strengths and opportunities for our community in 2020. Mayor Haynie, along with Town Council also met for their Council Retreat this past week and identified their vision for our Town. With this direction, Town staff is working diligently to prepare the annual budget and Capital Improvement Plan. These documents, along with the new Comprehensive Plan, which is currently under review, will set us up to be successful in achieving Council's vision both now, and in the future.

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.
