Our town council hold its regular council meetings the third Monday of each month. The meetings are open to the public.
The Town of Cowpens recently developed this website. We hope that the citizens in the Cowpens area will utilize our website. Also, please “Like Us” on our facebook page.
During our March meeting town council conducted regular business. Town Council voted to award the Cowpens Area Merchants Association funding to conduct their Spring Arts & Antiques on Main.
The Cowpens Police Department responded to 100 calls during February 2016. Officers issued 46 citations and 13 warnings. Ten of the citations were speeding tickets.
The Cowpens Fire Department responded to 25 fire calls during February 2016. Six calls were in town and 19 were in other districts.
In December 2014 Steve Bolin was appointed as our new town administrator. Mr. Bolin has been working diligently and closely with town council to make sure the town is running efficiently and using your tax dollars for the necessary services provided to you.
Roy Logan, our town councilman, along with Eddie Tallon, SC House Representative, made great achievements in getting a new bridge constructed on Old Pacolet Road. Council recently voted to name the bridge the “Representative Eddie Tallon and Councilman Roy Logan Bridge”. The mayor and town council hopes that this new thoroughfare will aid in the safety of our community.
The Cowpens Farmer’s Market has opened for the season. The hours are from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Our hope is that the community will come out and support the local vendors in the market.
Recently, town council passed an ordinance that sanctions summons procedures for ordinance violations related to community improvement. It also has a section for repeat offenders. This ordinance is entitled “Quality of Life/Community Improvement”. A copy can be obtained by visiting our forms page or a copy can be retrieved at town hall.
Congratulations to Teresa Chadwick, Clerk-Treasurer. Teresa received a scholarship through the Municipal Association of South Carolina to attend classes for Municipal Finance Officers and Clerk Treasurers Institute.
