During Elgin’s January town council meeting, Elgin Police Department Police Chief Harold Brown reported that 65 families were served during Elgin’s Toy Round Up -- a record. Brown also informed council that 152 children were served 49 food baskets distributed and  25 fruit baskets for senior citizens were distributed. Stover Middle School partnered with the EPD to assist with collecting toys.

 “It was a good year for the Toy Round Up. I think we collected more bikes this year than we had in all of the years combined. Every child who asked for a bike received a bike.” Elgin Mayor Melissa Emmons said. 

Brown also reported the town had received 3,000 back on previous gas bills from 2-years ago. He requested it be added to the town’s IT budget with left over funds being deposited into the town’s general fund.  

Council passed a motion that the IT budget be amended and if the amount is not used for that specific purpose it will roll back into the general fund.

Not discussed at the meeting, Elgin Municipal Judge David Reuwer received a public reprimand from the South Carolina Judicial Department for violating rules of professional conduct. 

The public reprimand, filed on Dec. 7, specifies two cases of persons identified as “Client A” and “Client B.”  

Council decided not to take action on Reuwer’s position as town judge.
