Mayor Hellyers Weekly Update

September 16, 2022

From September 16 through 18, you can take your hazardous household and electronic waste items to the Surfside Beach Public Works drop-off at 740 Sandy Lane between the hours of 9 and 1 p.m. This event is for the Town of Surfside Beach residents only. It’s a good time to clean out those items safely and environmentally sound.

Please spread the word - The Town of Surfside Beach is accepting employment applications for multiple positions in the Fire Department, Police Department and Public Works. For more information go to www.

Don’t forget - this Saturday, September 17, is the Beach Sweep. It is being held in conjunction with the state’s largest volunteer waterway cleanup event, the 2022 Beach Sweep River Sweep. Please join us at 3rd Ave North beach access from 9 to 10 a.m. This is a good opportunity to give a little something back to your community. 

We hope to see you there. I expect the weather will be beautiful. KSBB will be on hand to take pictures!

We need to give a shout-out to the police department for apprehending and arresting the three individuals responsible for breaking into cars on the south side of town. The property was recovered, along with several guns that were taken from unlocked vehicles. This is a reminder to us all to keep our vehicles locked. 

This Sunday, September 18, the group “Salty Dog” will perform from 4 to 7 p.m. at Memorial Park. There are only two more weeks left, come join us.

October is the last month that we will be awarding the “Yard-of-the Month” this year. Nominees have been submitted and the final selection of the year will be announced soon. Thanks to the Keep Surfside Beautiful Committee for all you do. I really appreciate all the hard work our residents commit to making our town look great. It’s not all over. Fall colors are soon approaching.

The “Celebrate Surfside Beach” festival will take place on September 24, from 11 to 3 p.m. This event is being sponsored by local businesses.  

There will be food, drink, music, kid-friendly events and other entertainment, including a dunking booth. 

The fun begins on 3rd Ave South to Surfside Drive. Wear comfortable shoes, and please park safely. It’s also promising to be a great day for pictures at the popular Surfside Beach murals, Hat Lady (which is being showcased in the new Grand Strand art and gallery trail) and Benjamin’s Bagels. Hope to see you there!

Stay safe and God Bless!  Mayor Bob Hellyer
