The Moncks Corner Regional Recreation Complex includes athletic fields, a community center, a farmer’s market ... all these amenities designed to bring the community together.
Now, the community has stepped in to help the complex’s construction to the finish line.
Foxbank LLC, the developers at Foxbank subdivision, donated $90,000 worth of topsoil for use on the football and soccer fields last week.
“Without this dirt we’d have us a couple of sand piles out there,” said Moncks Corner Public Services Director Butch Svagerko.
Mayor Bill Peagler said the loads of topsoil had a value of $90,000 to the town.
“I sincerely appreciate the donation of 5,000 cubic yards of topsoil from the developers of Foxbank Plantation,” the mayor said. “Jeff Randolph and Matt Bruner are stepping up as many other builders, contractors, church groups, civic clubs and developers have done to assist the Town of Moncks Corner with construction of the Moncks Corner Regional Recreation Complex.”
The $90,000 estimated value of the topsoil is derived from the volume of dirt plus the vehichles and manpower to deliver the dirt from Foxbank to the rec center’s Main Street location in Moncks Corner.
“The donation of topsoil and the donated delivery from Foxbank will enable the town to prepare the new football and soccer fields in the recreation complex for grassing at the perfect time of the year,” Peagler said.
Such help as the complex nears completion doesn’t go unnoticed.
“I appreciate all efforts of the private sector to assist the town with this and other worthwhile projects,” the mayor said. “Working together makes a real difference to the town and our taxpayers.”
Peagler went on to say that he is pleased that Southard Brothers Construction is so involved in the project.
“It is very helpful to have a local contractor with ties to our recreation program so involved with this project. Jason and Lee Southard take great pride in their work on this project and it is great to see their father Eddy Southard giving them a hand.”
