The Town of Irmo is in the process of forming a number of new committees to assist in identifying problem areas throughout the Town. This committee will be tasked with identifying roads in town that are need of repairs and reporting these areas to the staff for reporting to the appropriate agency that maintains the roadway. The Town has approximately 20 square miles of roadway and it is virtually impossible to identify all the areas with potholes, cracks, crumbling asphalt and broken concrete (various materials have been used to construct roads in the area).
The committee will be charged with pinpointing the affected area and providing GPS and/or address locations to assist the proper agencies with identification. The committee will also be responsible for compiling, and updating, a priority list, determined by the road condition (bad, very bad or “fix-your-front end” bad). Photographs and videos of the affected areas will greatly assist in getting our roads placed on the appropriate County of SCDOT maintenance schedule.
The committee will meet initially sometime in January 2020 to discuss known problem areas and develop procedures for data collection and reporting. Future meetings will be scheduled as needed with emphasis for keeping a priority list up to date.

The Town of Irmo is seeking volunteers to help with the new Beautification Program for the Town. This will consists of three separate sub-committees: (1) Beautification, (2) Arbor Day and, (3) Outreach. These are all citizen committees that will work together to accomplish a number of projects. As previously published:
The Irmo Arbor Day Committee is a 501c(3) non-profit organization with the goal to plan and provide plant material for projects. The Beautification Committee identify locations and projects to beautify in the Town of Irmo. They will coordinate with the Arbor Day Committee to finalize project ideas and secure the funding before making the presentation to the Town Council.
Finally, the Irmo Outreach Program will be a citizen organization that will identify citizens in need of assistance in and around their homes. This program will be managed by Mr. Wade DeLoach and assistance could involve home repairs and/or landscaping / yard projects. After identifying Irmo citizens with a need then the three committees working both autonomously and in conjunction with each other will develop a proposal to assist.
All these committees will meet initially sometime in January 2020 to discuss their charter and receive guidance from the Town Staff. Future meetings will be scheduled as needed with emphasis on developing plans and budgets for the proposed projects.
If you are interested in serving on any of these committees please submit a Talent Book Application by following the attached link. Make sure you clearly specify which committee you desire to serve on. Applications need to be received by the end of December, however you can submit at any time for any committee and/or Town Boards.
