Today was the workshop on the Pier Restoration Project.  We started out hearing from Diana King, the Finance Director.  She explained, in detail, the monies that are allocated for the building of the pier, along with the other expenses.  We were happy to hear that we have enough money, based on the current bids, to build the pier without raising taxes.  We also heard from the architect (LS3P) and engineering firm (Collins Engineering).  They were able to answer all of our questions.  There was one

question that went unanswered, but they assured us that they would provide the answer to that

question by Friday afternoon.  We were informed by the Interim Town Administrator that our request for an extension for the FEMA Grant has been forwarded from the State level to the Federal level for review.  If all of the information is provided, we will be able to award the bid at next Tuesday’s regular Town Council Meeting and the need for the FEMA extension will not be required.


There are only four more days left to register for “FALL BALL” with the Surfside Beach Youth Sports Association.  They are looking forward to seeing their players returning and they will send out more information on the season after registration closes.  Don’t forget that they need volunteers to coach!  They need T-ball, coach pitch and advanced coach pitches coaches the most!   For more information, check out their Facebook Page:
