Grants and savings equal city improvements
Placeholder Image
Just recently, I was talking with a group of local citizens when someone mentioned the new street lights. In the past three years, the City of Camden has received and utilized grants in excess of $3 million for several improvements. A combination of grant funds and some tax dollars has been spent to move many electrical lines underground: • Sandy Springs Drive/Popular Lane • Johnson Lane • Palmer Place Apartments • Carriage House Lane • Kershaw County Library - Camden Branch • Laurens Street Undergrounding • New Transformers, DeKalb Street Substation • Lyttleton Street Undergrounding • DeKalb Street Undergrounding • Turner Glass Company Undergrounding • Commerce Alley Undergrounding These capital improvements would not have been possible for many years to come if the city had not qualified for grant dollars.
