Upgrades and replacement of equipment and fixtures at the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston soon will become a reality, thanks to $2.7 million in tax-exempt revenue bonds from the South Carolina Jobs-Economic Development Authority (JEDA).
“The local community has embraced the aquarium from the beginning," Jack Higgins, executive vice president and CEO, said. "Being able to use this bond issue to economically update key parts of our facility is a way to responsibly reward that support, while better educating and entertaining visitors to this great city as well."
“The South Carolina Aquarium has been important to the tourism industry, conservation efforts, and education in our community, and we were pleased to have the opportunity to help them continue building this legacy," Bond Counsel Rion Foley with McNair Law Firm, P.A., in Charleston, said.
