Local post office gets landscaping improvements

July 18, 2013 by  

The Mt. Pleasant Post Office has recently undergone some landscaping improvements due to the combined efforts of resident Dayna Elliott and Town Councilman Elton Carrier.

The Town of Mt. Pleasant Public Service Department has probably used flyer printing and poster printing to allow the residents of the town to become aware of the spruced up landscaping that it has carried out.

According to Mount Pleasant town administrator Eric DeMoura, the landscaping improvements were able to be done at a minimal cost as most of the landscaping had already been planted and mostly labor was needed to neaten it up. A larger beautification project had previously been undertaken on Johnnie Dodds Boulevard where the Post Office is located and it now fits in very well.

The clean-up began in April of this year, once permission had been granted by the federal government after over a year of waiting. A Palmetto Pride grant was partially used in order to speed up the process to help the town qualify for the clean-up. Town workers put in additional plantings and these will be watered and maintained by employees of the town as if the Post Office were a town building, Councilman Carrier explained.

Carrier added that additional improvements need to be made to the entrance to the site, but these will be done at a later time. He said that the Post Office already looks much better and should be a welcomed destination for residents of the town.
