City of Aiken Presents the Richard W. Smith Memorial Roundabout

Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Mayor Rick Osbon along with Councilman Dick Dewar and City Manager Stuart Bedenbaugh presented the family of former council member Dick Smith with a new street sign that reads “Richard W. Smith Memorial Roundabout.” This presentation which took place June 19, 2019, follows a resolution that was adopted during the April 22, 2019 city council meeting. The roundabout on Eastgate Drive, just off Whiskey Road, is now officially named in honor of the councilman.

In attendance was Smith’s wife Donna Smith along with family members, former Councilman Reggie Ebner, family and friends. In a comment to the city, Mrs. Smith said, “This is a wonderful thing, and he would be so proud.”

Dick Smith, who passed away on March 23, 2019, at the age of 90, served the citizens of the City of Aiken for eight years as a City Council member from November 2001 to November 2009, representing District 4, and served as Mayor Pro Tem from 2006 to 2007. During his years of service, Dick Smith exemplified the characteristics essential for a public servant – commitment, integrity, loyalty. Under his leadership, the City of Aiken managed its growth and continued to be a city emphasizing history, art, and culture, and introduced modern day traffic solutions.
