Peagler a mainstay in Moncks Corner

Posted: Updated:

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCIV) -- He's led the Moncks Corner town council for nearly a decade and was born and raised in the town, making William Peagler III one of the most knowledgeable residents about Moncks Corner's history.

Peagler has strived to maintain that small town feel in Moncks Corner, but he has some big plans to keep pushing the community forward. Peagler says he they've grown past a time where everyone knew you personally and they are embracing that change.

"We have managed to grow Moncks Corner by 25 percent, that we are building a first class recreational facility right next door to this restaurant," he said. 

Mayor Peagler says eventually next to the recreation facility will be an aquatics center and city offices. For now, he says they will start with the basics.

"(There will be) baseball, softball, soccer fields football fields a tennis complex an amphitheater and hopefully a farmers market," Peagler said.

Peagler says the best part about building these fields is they didn't raise taxes on homeowners, instead they are using a hospitality tax to fund the project.

Peagler says he still would like to see Moncks Corner get a hospital, saying that the growth in the community warrants one.
