A Note from Lyman Town Council...
We are currently working with our Website administrator to make changes to the Town of Lyman Website. We are updating information in regard to our change in form of government, as quickly as possible. We want our citizens, businesses and community to know what is happening here in Lyman, South Carolina. We take pride in our website and realize it is a tremendous communication link between the municipality and our citizens. Our mission is to provide you as many online resources for living, doing business or seeking information about the Town as we possibly can. If you have questions that are not answered here on our site please feel free to contact us anytime at 864.439.3453.
Some of the primary highlights you will find on the website are
• We all want our homes to reflect the joy of the season, but avoid displaying gifts where they can be seen from a window or doorway.
• Arrange to have packages delivered to a neighbor if you're not home to receive them.
• Packages left on porches or doorsteps are "easy picking" for thieves. It also draws unwanted attention to your home.
• Consider simple outside decorations. Elaborate or large lawn pieces are often stolen right out of the lawn.
• Be sure not to obscure the view from your windows. You need a clear view of your property.
• Always lock your home's doors and windows, even if you're only gone for a few minutes.
• Compact or dispose of packaging discreetly. Often criminals will spot something you've discarded and can target you for their next burglary or theft.
• Notify the Lyman Police Department when you're planning an extended absence. They can issue a Vacation Security Check or directed patrol for your home.
• Always lock your car and close the windows, even if you’re only gone a few moments. When possible, lock all merchandise or packages in the trunk of your car. Load your packages before departing, not at the next location.
• Avoid leaving packages or shopping bags visible in your car.
• Stay alert to your surroundings and the people around you. Look inside your car and around it as you approach.
• Plan your trips. Instead of one big shopping trip, try several small ones. This will cut down on the amount of money you carry, the packages you’ll be en- cumbered with, and it will make your shopping less stressful.
• Park in well lit areas. Approach your vehicle with keys in hand so you can access your vehicle quickly. Do not stand delayed outside while rummaging through your purse where you can fall victim to a crime.
• Always report any suspicious or criminal activity to the Police.
