County of Lexington administrative offices will be closed on Monday, Sept. 11, 2017, due to the potential of severe weather coming to the Lexington County area as a result of Hurricane Irma.
This closure includes the following offices:
Court will commence beginning at 9 a.m. and close one hour after last bond has been set.
Curbside Solid Waste Collection:
The County’s collection and recycling centers will be closed on Monday. Curbside collection operations will also cease on Monday, pushing back each waste-collection day at least one day for curbside collection subscribers. Likewise, the County’s landfill will also be closed.
The storm is predicted to bring hurricane-force gusts of wind, which could knock down power lines, trees and tree branches and cause damage to structures. Rains generated from the storm could cause flooding in low-lying areas.
We urge that residents never drive, or walk, through flood waters. Remember that flooding can disrupt electricity and the drinking water supply. Flood waters can also carry hazardous materials that can endanger health, either upon contact with the water itself, or with the soggy debris left after potential flooding.
Residents are urged to also monitor the County’s website (lex-co.sc.gov) and social media channels (Twitter: @CountyLex; Facebook: County of Lexington) for updated County information throughout the storm.
