It was reported today that the construction project on Business 17 is just about completed.  There are a few things left on the punch list, but the barrels have started to be removed.  There are a few issues with the traffic signals that still need to be addressed.  Also, street lights need to be installed.  This work will be done by Santee Cooper and not SCDOT.  Santee Cooper should start the installation of the street lights in the next week or two.  This will start at Rt 544 and work their way to Melody Lane.  The project should be completed in the next month or so.


Keep Surfside Beach Beautiful is having a “Beach Sweep” on September 19, 2020, from 9-10 AM.  Bags and gloves will be provided.  Enter a chance to win a Pizza Hyena Gift Certificate.


The Surfside Beach Public Works Facility will accept the following items September 18–20:

Paints, solvents, batteries, gas mixtures, pesticides, oil, herbicides, aerosols, cleaners, corrosive materials, fluorescent bulbs, computers, DVD players, fax machines, printers, monitors, televisions, and VCRs.  Bring these items to the Public Works Facility at 740 Sandy Lane, Surfside Beach, SC between the hours of 9 AM and 1 PM.


With the tourist season coming to an end, and children starting their new hybrid schedule, it is even more important for us to maintain our social distancing and wearing a mask.  This is not only to protect yourself but others.  Let’s all work together to keep the numbers down.


I welcome your input. I can be reached at and I will respond…


Have a Great Weekend………….


Stay Safe ... God Bless … Wear a Mask … Thank You … Mayor Bob Hellyer
