PUBLIC COMMENTS: Richard Faulk Mr. Faulk, Chairman of the Midway Fire-Rescue Board, began his comments by expressing appreciation to Council Chairman Johnny Morant for his many years of service to the citizens of Georgetown County. Also, Mr. Faulk voiced concerns regarding the need to increase the number of emergency medical service (EMS) personnel authorized for Midway Fire-Rescue (MFR). He said there has been a drastic increase in calls for service in Fire District 2, and although this need has been met by paying overtime wages to existing personnel, it has negatively impacted the MFR Budget. The population, and aging community, is continually increasing in this area of the County, which is presenting a crisis that requires the addition of EMS personnel.

Sam Livingston Mr. Livingston voiced opposition to the proposal to rezone a 948 acre tract on Penny Royal Road to Heavy Industrial (Ordinance No. 2017-19). He said two of the top three industries releasing harmful chemicals in the air are currently located on the Penny Royal Road corridor. He said buffers cannot protect the area residents from things such as noise, pollutants that deteriorate the air and human organs, and the devaluation of their property. He questioned if members of County Council would be more concerned with this matter if the proposed industry was locating in their own neighborhood. A vote to rezone this property will be a vote in favor of destroying the County. Georgetown County Council Meeting Minutes

Eileen Johnson Ms. Johnson voiced opposition to the proposed rezoning of 948 acres on Penny Royal Road (Ordinance No. 2017-19). She said recent surveys regarding this matter indicate that most people are in opposition to it. Ms. Johnson said when residents of the Waccamaw Neck were opposed to big box stores, everybody supported them. County Council has unanimously taken a position to protect the ocean from the detriments of off-shore drilling; however, requests to protect the County s rivers have been ignored. She asked if the lives of Penny Royal residents were less important than those who live on the Waccamaw Neck. Ms. Johnson stated that the county budget is in a shortfall, and asked how spending money on due diligence to market this property can be justified, when other industrial sites are available within the County.

Amelia Thompson Ms. Thompson spoke in opposition of rezoning 948 acres of property on Penny Road to Heavy Industrial (Ordinance No. 2017-19) on behalf of the SC River Keepers, Coastal Conservation League, and Sierra Club. She said from a legal perspective the rezoning of this property is premature. The County s Code requires careful study and comparison surveys, which have not been done. Additionally the county code that talks against heavy industrial development on tidal rivers, such as the Sampit River, which is not capable of self-purification. Moving forward with this project could subject the County to legal ramifications. Rev. Sandra Ladson Rev. Ladson voiced opposition to rezoning 948 acres on Penny Royal Road to Heavy Industrial (Ordinance No. 2017-19). Rev. Ladson asked individuals attending the meeting who were opposed to rezoning this property to stand to their feet. She pointed out that the large group of individuals represented not only the Penny Royal community, but came from all areas across the county, including the City of Georgetown, Pawleys Island, the Plantersville Community, and others. She urged Council members to defend the mission of this County that they swore to uphold, and act in a manner to restore the trust of the citizens they serve. She urged all Council members to vote no , and deny the rezoning of this property. Marvin Neal Mr. Neal, President of the NAACP local chapter, spoke in opposition of the proposed rezoning of property on Penny Royal Road to Heavy Industrial (Ordinance No. 2017-19). He said County Council should not approve this request, as doing so would poison the poor rural community. Mr. Neal said he attended the Land Use Committee meeting and watched the political sabotage by three council members who voted to rezone this property to heavy industrial, where they do not live and have no interest. Councilmember Everett Carolina, who lives in and represents this Council District, had the odds stacked against him. All citizens should realize that what goes into the Sampit River affects all other rivers in the County. He questioned how County Council could vote to oppose off shore drilling, but not to protect the County s rivers. Mr. Neal urged County Council to vote in the best interest of all citizens on this matter, and not for the sake of politics. MINUTES: Regular Council Session May 8, 2018 Councilmember Ron Charlton made a motion to approve the minutes of the May 8, 2018 meeting. Councilmember Austin Beard seconded the motion. Chairman Johnny Morant called for discussion on the motion, and there was none. Georgetown County Council Meeting Minutes

ORDINANCES-Third Reading Ordinance No. 2017-19 Ordinance No. 2017-19 was previously referred to the Land Use Committee of County Council. Committee Chairman Austin Beard stated that the Committee's most recent meeting was held on May 10, 2018, with all Committee members in attendance. A summary and recap of activity since the previous meeting (October 26, 2017) was provided by Brian Tucker, Economic Development Director.

Councilmember Everett Carolina stated that although he is the elected representative of Council District 3, he is an ambassador for all Georgetown County residents. He stated that he had listened to the people on this matter, and for a variety of reasons could not support moving forward with rezoning this property. The Planning Commission, appointed by County Council to advise it on zoning matters, voted unanimously to recommend against it. There are historical/archeological issues, traffic issues, and the project will de-value neighboring properties. The cost of the property to the County is overpriced, and the amount of buildable area is questionable, when other areas of the County, such as Andrews, could benefit from this

ISSUE UNDER CONSIDERATION: Ordinance No. 2018-15 - To rezone 8.5 acres located on Martin Luther King Road approximately 1500 feet west of Petigru Drive in Pawleys Island from One-half Acre Residential (R1/2 AC) to 10,000 Square Feet Residential (R-10)

On February 27, 2018, Cynthia Murray acting as agent for James Earl Brown filed a request to rezone 8.5 acres from One Half Acre Residential (R Ac) to 10,000 Square Feet Residential (R- 10). The property is located on Martin Luther King Road approximately 1,500 feet west of Petigru Drive in Pawleys Island. TMS 04-0413-041-00-00. Case Number REZ 3-18-20144.
Tagged Passions:property, streets, ordinance, and zoning

CURRENT STATUS: The existing 8.5 acre tract is vacant.

POINTS TO CONSIDER: 1. The applicant is proposing to rezone the 8.5 acre tract from half acre lots to 10,000 square foot lots in order to provide more suitable lot sizes to accommodate the increase of residents seeking to live in the Pawleys Island area.

Tagged Passions:zoning

2.
If this rezoning is approved, any subdivision of this property must comply with the R-10 zoning district requirements. The R-10 district allows for single family dwellings. Mobile homes are not allowed in R-10. This property is adjacent to Martin Luther King Road and Maintenance Drive. Maintenance Drive is a private right of way; therefore, at this time sole access to this property will be from Martin Luther King Road.

3. The intent of the R-10 zoning district is to provide areas for single family development, low to moderate density, to discourage the encroachment of commercial, industrial or other uses capable of adversely affecting the residential character and to preserve the architectural character and deed restrictions of established neighborhoods. 4. Adjacent properties to the east are zoned One-Half Acre Residential. Both 10,000 Square Feet Residential (MR-10) and General Residential (GR) zoning districts are located to the south and the River Club PD is located south of the proposed rezoning. Storage and an access road for the River Club PD is located to the west of the tract. Lots in the River Club PD are comparable to the R-10 zoning.

Tagged Passions:recycling, RFP, rfp, and services

Collection, Transportation, and Recycling of Clothing and Fabric: Retain the services of a qualified, experienced provider for the collection, transportation and recycling of clothing and fabric generated by the citizens of Georgetown County, in concert with the recycling programs of the Public Services Department/Environmental Services Division.

CURRENT STATUS: On April 4, 2018, Georgetown County Department of Public Services received two bids for the above referenced services. The Environmental Division performed its due diligence with the bids, seeking the highest responsible bid for revenue generated by clothing and fabric recycling. Experience was factored in, as well as responsiveness to county needs. The attached bid recommendation memo details the selection of Green Zone Recycling, LLC, based on their revenue generation and their successful implementation of clothing recycling programs for other county convenience centers. POINTS TO CONSIDER: 1) The per annum projection for clothing/fabric recycling generated by Georgetown County is 35 tons. The revenue estimate for this amount is 7,000, which goes toward recycling services. In addition, it prolongs the life of our landfill by diverting these items from the general waste. 2) Fabric and clothing will be collected at nine of our Convenience Centers as a service to residents in the areas experiencing high volume drop-offs. 3) Our revenue is projected to remain consistent even with a change in vendor. (Our current vendor, Goodwill Industries, chose not to continue the contract.)
