Chapin Town Hall

Mayor's Message


On Tuesday we had our Regular Town Council Meeting at Town Hall with a packed house. We had a very busy agenda with several important items. The Town Council Meetings are a great way to experience the community spirit that makes this area so special.
Leland Teal was sworn into office by Lexington County Magistrate Gary Reinhart who serves as the Judge for Chapin Municipal Court. It was a great way to start our meeting, the empty council seat has now been filled and as I stated during the meeting “he will be a welcomed addition to our administration.”
One of the best aspects of our meetings is the ability to recognize and commend businesses, organizations and individuals that go above and beyond for their community. During Tuesday’s Council Meeting we were able to issue various acknowledgments to our community members for their contributions to the Labor Day Festival. It is an honor to preside over these proceedings and to offer a symbol of gratitude to these individuals.
Please enjoy the pictures provided below and if you see these individuals around Town, please acknowledge their commitment and thank them for their service. Don’t forget tomorrow is the last Farmer’s Market of the season, held on Clark Street from 9:30-1:00. With free entertainment, a bounce house and plenty of opportunity to shop we hope to see you there.

Best regards,

Mayor David Knight

Environmental Systems Operators Week

Utilities Director, Andy Metts, received a proclamation from Mayor David Knight declaring Oct. 28- Nov. 3 as “Environmental Systems Operators Week”.  Proclaimed in honor of the many contributions made by the Town’s Environmental Systems Operators to our quality of life while raising awareness for the protection and conservation of our natural resources; this is a well-deserved recognition.

Bike and Pedestrian Path

Thursday evening the community room was packed as the public provided valuable input to a group contracted to develop viable options for bike and pedestrian paths in the Chapin community.

Friday Night Rivals
