Ready to March into a new week? Here are 5 things to help get you started

Good morning and happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Here’s your primer for a brand new week:

Town Council: For you early risers, Fort Mill Town Council meets at 7:30 this morning in Council Chambers (old Town Hall, new police department). The agenda includes a presentation by Manning Kimmel on the Pathways Project, a proposal for a Main Street concert series and the town’s bond rating.

Art at Artis: All Play Together, a group dedicated to inclusiveness, offers tile painting 2-5 p.m. March 31 at Amor Artis on Main Street in Fort Mill.

Got scrap? If taking your metal and tin cans to one of the York County-run recycling centers in town is not convenient for whatever reason, Donald Ward is happy to take it – as well as whatever other scrap metal you have. Ward, who lives on North Dobys Bridge Road bear the Doby Bridge Mart, has a cart in his yard where you can leave your cans (look for the sign).

Larger scrap items can be left by his shop at the top of the driveway. Ward says he hauls the scrap to Smith Metal in Rock Hill, where he gets 5 cents a pound, a lot les than it used to be before the bottom fell out of the recycling market.

“It used to be 10 cents a pound,” he said.
