Chapin Town Hall

Mayor's Message

As winter has given way to the warmer weather of spring, I have taken the opportunity to reflect over the first quarter of 2018 and my first three months as Mayor of the Town of Chapin. It has been a busy and exciting time at Town Hall.

As a longtime resident and business owner of Chapin, it is my desire to see our town flourish. I want to see the community that I, and so many others, love remain as beautiful as it is today remain for future generations. One of the most important environmental conservation processes we have at our disposal is the wastewater treatment process. In order to satisfy our customer obligation and the regulatory requirements of DHEC, expanding our current capacity and improving the quality of treatment at the plant became a necessity.

This important effort began long ago with council members and former Mayor Stan Shealy and has continued through to this administration. On March 7, I had the honor and privilege to welcome attendees to the official groundbreaking ceremony for the Town’s new wastewater treatment plant.

The past three months have been a fun and exciting experience. I am constantly impressed with the talent, professionalism and knowledge of the Town Hall staff as well as the Town Council members. The team has been very helpful and supportive during this time and has made the transition into office very smooth.

At Town Hall, we recognize the need for consistent and open communication. We hope this newsletter becomes a source of valuable information to residents and community members. We have contracted with Nicholle Burroughs on a part-time and interim capacity to provide communications and event-planning assistance on behalf of the town. If you have questions regarding any of the information contained in this document, please contact

Best Regards,

Mayor David Knight

The Chapin Police Department in conjunction with Vive Church invited community members to attend an Easter Egg Hunt at Town Hall on Saturday, March 24.
