The Commission has renewed the lease agreement for the current office space at 1333 Main Street, Columbia, SC. As a result, the Commission will be renovating the office space and common area beginning May 18. We believe the renovations will help us better serve system stakeholders. We anticipate the renovations to be completed by September 21. During the renovations we do not anticipate major disruptions to our business operations, however on occasion we may experience minor inconveniences. We will do everything within our power to keep the inconveniences to a minor so as to not adversely impact our stakeholders.

We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time. If you have any questions or experience any problems, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 803-737-5744.
