MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (September 15, 2018) – As evacuation orders for Charleston County are lifted in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie is declaring the Town of Mount Pleasant open for business.
“We are thankful that our town was spared the brutal impacts of this storm and we grieve for the losses and damage in other areas,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie. “Today, Mount Pleasant will transition back to normal operations. We are doing everything we can to support our local economy by letting our community know that we are open for business. We ask businesses to tag us on social media or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know when they are open. We will share that information back to the community on our Spotlight section at www.tompsc.com.”
The Town of Mount Pleasant Administrative Offices will open on Monday, Sept. 17. Waste management personnel will also resume garbage and yard debris collection. Yard debris collection will begin on Monday but will not move to Tuesday’s route until Monday route’s yard debris is collected. The same applies to Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday routes.
Businesses are urged to keep their sandbags for the duration of the 2018 hurricane season, which extends to November 30. They should consider sandbags part of their emergency kit and keep them out of direct sun. The Public Services Department staff does not pick up sandbags.
