A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR JOHNNY HANNA REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
TO: The Citizens of Johnsonville
FROM: Mayor Johnny Hanna
SUBJECT: Covid-19 Pandemic
First, I want to commend and thank you all for your compliance with social distancing suggestions by our state and national leaders. These measures are working to slow the spread of the Coronavirus and keep you and your families safe and healthy.
City employees have reported that no one has tried to use the basketball courts and other equipment at the City Park, there are no boat trailers parked at Odell Venters Landing, and there is a significant decrease in traffic around town. This indicates to me that Johnsonville’s citizens and area residents are staying home unless they are conducting necessary business or errands. Thank you and please continue to do so.
I want to thank the numerous restaurants and businesses that have remained open to serve the community in whatever capacity they can. I encourage citizens to continue to support businesses offering “essential services” during this time.
We have been posting helpful information for citizens and businesses on this website. Disaster assistance is being offered through programs with the S.C. Department of Commerce, the Small Business Administration and other agencies. The City of Johnsonville has no funding set aside for business assistance. However, if your business has some type of dire need as a result of this pandemic, bring it to the attention of City Council and we will gladly review it and see what we can do to help.
Again, I want to thank you for your compliance with what our leaders are trying to do to lessen the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Together we will get through this unprecedented crisis facing our community, our nation and our world. May God bless your family and loved ones!
