ROWESVILLE -- Residents of Rowesville have let town officials know they are concerned about speeding motorists and stray dogs.
Mayor Paul Bishop and Rowesville Town Council members discussed possible strategies that could be implemented to curb speeding in the town at the January council meeting.
The consequence of not enforcing leash laws was also discussed by the council. Many residents have complained that stray dogs are roaming the town with no one taking responsibility for them, it was noted.
Bishop said he would contact Orangeburg County Animal Control to determine what can be done to enforce the leash law.
Also during the meeting, the mayor discussed 2019 events the town plans to take part in, including having a booth at this year's Orangeburg County Festival of Roses. Bishop also noted that the date needs to be set for the 2019 Rowesville River Run. He said council will decide on a date for the event at its February meeting.
The mayor said the town will once again host Boo at the Booth in October and the Christmas Luncheon in December because of the high attendance and positive feedback for both events last year.
In other business, it was mentioned that Bishop has been sprucing up the town and cleaning up town-owned properties so they can be used for various purposes.
