Malloy helps Darlington secure much needed funds

The City of Darlington held a news conference Jan. 4 to publicly thank Sen. Gerald Malloy for his aid in helping the city secure a total of $1.8 million in funding for improvements to the sewer system on the city’s south side. Malloy delivered a $300,000 state appropriation that took the project “to the finish line.” Mayor Curtis Boyd said, “Without this $300,000, the project would have never even gotten off the ground. That was a tremendous amount. We greatly appreciate your help.” Malloy said, “There’s more yet to come. … I try to bring everybody in (on such projects).” The $1.8 million project will upgrade four pump stations and upgrade a force main in South Darlington on the east side of Main Street from U.S. 52 Business/U.S. 52 Bypass to the city’s main treatment plant. Most of the funding ($1.2 million) came from the Economic Development Administration and $268,000 came from the S.C. Rural Infrastructure Authority. PHOTO BY BOBBY BRYANT
