PUBLIC COMMENTS: Tom Stickler Mr. Stickler stated that he was a member of a citizens group in favor of integration of the Opticom Emergency Vehicle Preemption System for Georgetown County. The system intercedes with traffic signals to prevent traffic delays in the response time of emergency vehicles. The system has been proven to reduce emergency response times by 25-40 , and reduce accidents involving emergency vehicles by 75 . The annual subscription cost of implementing this system is 143,704.56, and this would not increase for 10 years. The group has circulated a petition and collected over 1100 signatures of citizens and business owners that support the system. As a member of the Board of Directors of Waccamaw Neck Council of Property Owner Associations he urged Council to support this endeavor. David Gundling Mr. Gundling spoke on behalf of the Pawleys Island Litchfield Business Association (PILBA) in opposition of a proposal to implement a business license fee in Georgetown County. He said this would place a an undue financial burden in addition to the costs, including higher property taxes and others costs placed on local businesses that are trying to remain competitive. Mr. Gundling said the business community feels they are already paying more than their fair share in taxes, and would ask that County Council Georgetown County Council Meeting Minutes explore and consider other options that are more evenly distributed, allowing the area to remain business friendly. Wesley Gibson Mr. Gibson spoke on behalf of Citizens for Progress, stating that as an advocate for recreation and children, he was present to commend the County Administrator, and County Council, for moving forward with the bid for multi-purpose fields and other facility improvements at the Beck Recreation Center. The community has been asking for this for a while, and he expressed appreciation to his Council representative who has been supportive throughout. This will give children and adults the opportunity to walk and play in a safe place. On a separate matter, Mr. Gibson asked County Council not to put the aquatic centers on the back burner of its capital improvement plans. Georgetown is surrounded by water, and it is critical that our residents learn to swim. Marvin Neal Mr. Neal said he echoed Mr. Gibson s comments regarding the need for an aquatic center in Georgetown County, and urged County Council to make this a priority. On a separate matter of concern, as President of the NAACP, Mr. Neal said it seems that County Council has not been receptive to his previous comments. The comments are not directed to anyone personally, but are to address specific situations, such as the hiring practices of Georgetown County. Mr. Neal voiced concerns regarding a County employee who was hired 15 years ago at 7 per hour, and now earns 11 per hour. He said there is a problem when an employee receives a 4 increase within a 15 year period, especially considering that the top positions in the County are all paid over 100,000 per year. This is only one reason why the next administrator should not be status quo . County Council should take this opportunity for a fresh new start in its hiring practices, and implementing fairness in the County s salary appropriations. Nepotism still exists within Georgetown County government, and County Council should look closely at this.

Karen Yaniga Ms. Yaniga stated that she was speaking on behalf of herself, and also Mayor Jimmy Braswell of Pawleys Island (who had a prior commitment for this evening). She stated that Mayor Braswell has recognized the island residents and those visiting. The Life Saving Lights proposal was initiated in 2017. At that time, Mayor Bill Otis and the Pawleys Island Town Council passed a resolution supporting the Opticom System. Today, Mayor Braswell and the Pawleys Island Town Council continue to fully support implementation of the system. Ms. Yaniga provided council members with packets of new information from four different cities with data collected by the system regarding decreases in the response time of emergency vehicles to arrive at the scene of the emergency. Most people in this community would like County Council to pass a 3 fee per taxable parcel in support of this system. Ms. Yaniga asked individuals in the meeting room who supported this endeavor to be acknowledged by raising their hand. The majority of those in attendance were in support.

REPORTS TO COUNCIL: Employee of the Quarter This report was moved forward on the meeting agenda, and presented previously during the meeting. Walt Ackerman, Georgetown County Director of Administrative Services, introduced Tracey Howle, who has been named Georgetown County s Employee of the 2nd Quarter. As a key member of Georgetown County's Emergency Services team, Tracey Howle has been employed with Georgetown County for 26 years (since Sept. 1992). She started with Georgetown County EMS, handling administrative tasks, billing and some dispatching, along with other duties as assigned. With consolidation of Fire and EMS operations, she became administrative assistant to the Emergency Services Director, and now serves in the expanded role of administrative assistant for the Emergency Services Division, working under the direction of the County Administrator. She coordinates meetings and handles reports and daily administrative details for the County's two fire and EMS Departments, as well as Georgetown County Emergency Management, and works in the County's Emergency Operations Center when it is activated. Mr. Ackerman stated that Tracey s job is never-ending . She is continually faithful in executing her duties, and recognized by all as an asset to Georgetown County.

Recognition - Innovation Award This report was moved forward on the meeting agenda, and presented previously during the meeting. Walt Ackerman, Georgetown County Director of Administrative Services, informed County Council that Midway Fire-Rescue Battalion, Chief Jeff Pifer, was awarded Georgetown County s Innovation Award for a policy he introduced regarding situations in which emergency responders encounter bedbugs in the course of performing their duties. The policy was deemed an effective way of reducing the likelihood of spreading bedbugs to county facilities, and thus saves money associated with combating bedbug infestation. Fire and EMS staff are on a daily basis called to enter homes all across their service areas, where they encounter a range of issues. Pifer researched policies enacted by larger departments and used those as a basis to craft one that fits Georgetown County's operations. The policy is both affordable and easy to duplicate and introduce in other departments and divisions where appropriate. The policy outlines procedures for creating Bedbug Decon Kits, which can be deployed by the on-duty battalion chief. Not only does this help prevent the spread of bedbugs, but it is significantly less expensive that extermination services after an infestation has taken place. The policy was implemented in May and county officials are looking at other departments in which implementation might be useful. Georgetown County Council Meeting Minutes

Plan and Practice Your Escape effectively serves to remind us that every member in the home should work together in developing a home escape plan, which should include two ways out of every home, a designated meeting place outdoors, and this home escape plan should be practiced each month with the entire family; and Whereas, young children should be taught how to escape on their own, know how to close the doors behind them, and know they should never go back inside a burning building; and Whereas, every resident of Georgetown County should install and maintain smoke alarms in every sleeping area, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home, which cuts the risk of dying in a home fire in half; and Whereas, Georgetown County s first responders, representing the collective members of Georgetown County Fire/EMS, Midway Fire Rescue, and the Murrells Inlet-Garden City Fire District, are dedicated to reducing the occurrence of home fires and home fire injuries through providing community based fire prevention education and intervention; and Whereas, Georgetown County s residents are asked to be responsive to public education measures and should take personal steps to increase their safety from fire, especially in their homes; and THEREFORE, the Georgetown County Council members do hereby proclaim October 2019 as Fire Prevention Month throughout this county, and urge all the citizens and visitors of Georgetown County to participate in the many fire prevention activities and efforts provided by the collective Georgetown County fire and emergency service organizations.

ISSUE UNDER CONSIDERATION: Ordinance No. 19-17 - An Amendment to the County's Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance dealing with temperature-controlled prohibition for areas underneath a structure in the flood zone.

Tagged Passions:ordinance and flooding

CURRENT STATUS: The ordinance was last updated in 2018. The model ordinance provided by the state was the basis for this version.

Tagged Passions:ordinance

POINTS TO CONSIDER: 1. Administration of the Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance has become increasingly difficult. Construction issues are highly technical. The County must have adopted such an ordinance to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program. 2. Today, the Flood Management Program in the County achieves a rating of 7 on the NFIP scale. On this scale, a rating of 10 receives no discount on individual flood insurance premiums. The County's rating of 7 grants each flood insurance policy holder in the County a fifteen (15) discount on their premiums. 3. One issue that has arisen is the prohibition of temperature controlled space in a residence below the base flood elevation (BFE). This prohibition is in the County's ordinance and was taken from the State's model ordinance. It is not unusual for an elevated house in a flood zone to have an enclosed entrance way feature in which the BFE does not rise all the way to a ceiling. Homeowners wish to install a HVAC vent in the entrance way, but above the BFE. Currently, the County's ordinance prohibits this by saying no space in the enclosure can be temperature controlled, regardless of the location of a vent. 4. Staff has determined that the term temperature controlled is not a FEMA requirement but was placed in the model code as someone at the Sate level believed it would be a good practice. Therefore, the County could remove the prohibition resulting from the term temperature controlled from the local ordinance and not be in violation of a FEMA mandate. 5. Removal of the temperature controlled prohibition would enable a homeowner to store certain equipment such as bicycles, golf clubs, fishing equipment, etc...in a better protected environment.

FINANCIAL IMPACT: Not applicable. Staff will monitor the NFIP rating scale to assess if the removal of this provision would impact points relating to insurance premiums. If needed, points could be achieved in other areas.

ISSUE UNDER CONSIDERATION: Ordinance No. 2017-23 - To amend the Pawleys Plantation Planned Development to add an additional two single family lots to the PD. TMS 04-0418-014-00-00. Case Number AMPD 6-17-18572.

On June 27, 2017 the Pawleys Plantation Property Owners Association applied to change the land use designation for two parcels along Green Wing Teal Lane from open space to single family. A change in land use is considered a major change to a Planned Development based on Section 619.3 of the Zoning Ordinance. CURRENT STATUS: The Pawleys Plantation PD is located east of Ocean Highway approximately 557 feet south of Hagley Drive in Pawleys Island. The PD contains a combination of single family units, patio lots and multi-family units along with a golf course and associated amenities. POINTS TO CONSIDER: 1. The Pawleys Plantation Property Owners Association took ownership of the two parcels labeled as open space 9 and 10 on the attached map in 2010. The parcels were originally part of the golf course property. 2. According to the applicant both parcels were largely shown as wetlands on a 1987 Army Corps of Engineers

survey. The POA s environmental consultant has indicated that the wetlands have receded significantly on these two parcels since the 1987 survey and both are now suitable building sites. The Army Corps has not yet confirmed the consultant s assertion.

3.
The POA is seeking to sell the parcels in order to relieve the organization from the burden of maintaining both of these areas as well as provide additional income to be used for maintenance elsewhere on the property.

4.
Open space 9 contains .25 acres and is approximately 72 feet wide. Open space 10 contains .29 acres is approximately 113 feet wide. Both parcels exceed the average lot size for the street with the exception of the large half-acre parcel located at the end of the cul de sac which was a combination of two original lots. Existing parcels on this street are considered patio lots and are designated as Tract D. Setbacks are 20 for the front, 7 and 3 for the side if a one-story home and 12 and 8 for the side if a two-story home and 20 in the rear.

5.
The parcels back up to a large pond. The County s GIS infrared imagery shows significant uplands for both parcels. The attached wetland delineation from the applicant s consultant shows .004 of an acre of wetlands out of a total of .25 acres for Open Space 9 and .1 acre of wetlands out of a total of .29 acres for Open Space 10. Some fill will likely be required for Open Space 10.

Tagged Passions:GIS, services, and property

6.
The reduction in the amount of open space for the PD is minimal based on the large amount of open space provided for the PD as a whole. According to their engineer, the PD contains 62 acres of open space including the golf course. The POA currently owns 22.4 acres of open space.

After receiving several comments from the neighbors regarding drainage, the Commission deferred action at the August meeting. Four property owners from this area spoke against the proposal with concerns about existing drainage problems, adding more run-off to the system and the promise of open space in these areas. One property owner spoke stating that the POA representative had addressed his concerns from the previous meeting. The POA representative responded by stating that the lots were not initially left for open space, but due to the wetlands which have now receded, the drainage situation will not be changed by virtue of this request and that the POA is attempting to work with the golf course on the issues with the existing ditch in this area.
