Mayor's Message

Spring has sprung in Springdale! We have had many families and children enjoying our park!

This Saturday, April 13, 2019, grab the kids and join us for our Annual Easter Egg Hunt Sponsored by the Town of Springdale and Platt Springs United Methodist Church at 3215 Platt Springs Road from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. There will be refreshments, games, a bounce house, the Easter Bunny, and TONS of eggs. It's sure to be an EGG-cellent time!

The BBQ to benefit the Cindy Roof Wilkerson Foundation was held on April 5, 2019 and was a great success. Thank you to all who purchased BBQ plates and supported this awesome foundation that focuses on encouraging exercise and healthy nutrition for all ages as an integral part of community culture.

The family of John “Runt” and Carolyn Hook were presented with a resolution announcing the dedication of a park bench in Felton C. Benton Park honoring their memory and dedication to Community Service during the April 2, 2019 Council Meeting. The Town of Springdale extends our deepest gratitude for their contributions to the quality of life in the town.

The Public Works department will begin construction of a new collaborative gardening project at Springdale Elementary School during the week of April 15, 2019. The elementary school children will participate in planting the garden, which will coincide with their science curriculum and Arbor Day/Earth Day activities. We are very excited about this project and we know the students of Springdale Elementary School will be excited as well.

On March 5th, 2019, the Springdale Town Council passed Ordinance 0-19-03, an Ordinance providing for a Local Hospitality Tax on the Sales of Prepared Meals and Beverages in Establishments in the Town of Springdale. A packet concerning this tax was mailed out last week to all businesses required to collect this tax. If you have any questions, please call Municipal Clerk Leeann Eden at 803-794-0408.

Just a heads up that the Daddy and Me 5K will be held on June 15, 2019. The starting time for this event is 8:00 a.m. and there will be “Dadlympics” (Olympic-type activities for the dads) immediately following the race. This event will include food, family fun, a DJ, dancing and awards for the 5K and “Dadlympics”. The registration fee is $25.00 and includes a T-Shirt. There is an option to register for $10.00 if you do not wish to obtain a bib and be timed. You can register at www.serveandconnect.net/daddy-me-5k/ or at www.strictlyrunning.com/gpuilreg-8l.asp?uRaceld=3205. Proceeds of this event benefit the Midlands Fatherhood Coalition, a nonprofit organization focused on engaging fathers in the positive support of their children. There are sponsorship opportunities available through May 31st. A sponsorship for the 5K would be a great way to promote and market your business! If you are interested in sponsorship, please contact Chief Cornett at the Police Department, 803-796-3160 for more information. Sponsorship packets and flyers are available at the Police Department as well.

Tickets for the CMRTA’S COMET bus are available for purchase at Town Hall. An informational pamphlet is available at Town Hall that outlines the routes and services of the COMET.
