A major KPB initiative, Adopt-A-Road, under the leadership of Bart Connelly was very successful in 2016. 20 volunteers or groups picked up 415 bags of litter from approximately 136 miles of Pickens County Roads. KPB is grateful to our volunteers who performed this service in 2016.
KPB is looking forward to another productive year continuing to do projects that enhance the appearance of our beautiful county.
