Letter: Church members ask for road paving

by | May 10, 2018 8:55 am

For the past 25-plus years, we, the members of Triumph Church at 1285 Pearson Road, have been pleading with Clarendon County to pave this muddy road. The county always has given many excuses why they were not going to pave our road.
Some of the excuses from Clarendon County are “Do buses travel on this road?” or “You must be added to the list of those making a request to have your road paved” and “It may be next year before we can get to you.”
There were given one reason/excuse after another while other roads were being paved.
Wyboo Golf Club community has always had its roads paved and repaved. We as a church feel we are being slighted and our concerns are not being addressed with true satisfaction due to the length of how long our request has been on the books.
The county has made us feel that they are not working a just and fair way about our request for paving our roads.
Our church has been in the community approximately 100 years, and for the church members and the church guests to have to continue to drive through mud to get to the church when it rains is unfair.

    Because they cater to the lake..the “average” taxpayers dont mean anything to our council. If they can’t gain anything for themselves, it isn’t going to happen

    You claim this is unfair? The only “fair” I know comes in October.

    What about the road fee we have to pay? With approx. 72000
    Licensed vehicles in our county at,I believe, $30 a vehicle…well
    you do the math. Where does this money go?

    Have you not went down the main hwy in manning In front of cvs that road is monstrous and has been paved for months now and looks slack and uneven . Like something off the Disney cars movie after McQueen tore up the town. There’s a lot of stuff that doesn’t make sense and no one knows where the money is going

    There are MANY roads that need to be attended in Clarendon County and excuses are always handed out. We post all over Manninglive.com and Facebook about all the events going on around here. Inviting people from all over to come to our beautiful Clarendon County, (Manning, full of beauty and hospitality) but just look at the main road in / through our town. (the road from I-95 going through town, in-front of our beautiful newly renovated court house, with lots of beach traffic through our town) So where is the tax money that we pay for all these road repairs?

    Welcome to the club. Every time I complain I get the same ol excuses. The people over our county roads are a joke he comes out and tries to make you think they working on it. He tries to sugar coat your problem and tell you that you don’t know how busy they are. But then again who checks behind them no one. So they spend the money how they want to. I bet that the county roads in front of there houses are in great shape.

    I have been a property owner in Clarendon county since 2004 and a permanent resident since 2009. I live on Cooper lane at Scot Lake.The road is unpaved The county comes once or twice a year to grade the road and make a total mess of it each time. The drainage ditches are covered up which leads to flooded roads during heavy rains. The road gets narrower every time it’s graded. I have found out that unless it’s down town Manning anything else means very little to county council.

    Last time I asked there were currently 2 paving crews currently working in the county with another to start soon, what sense does it make to pave new roads when many of the current ones are failing. I encourage all to ask questions and get involved, not just make senseless comments with no facts to back them up. More is not better. But I do agree 2 million is fees does seem like a lot and does need to be accounted for or abused.
