The Santee Cooper crew is back and finishing up the streetlights on 17 Business.  Upon completion, there will be a total of 41 double streetlights in Surfside Beach.  We will be working to figure out the signage that will be on these poles, as well as the plans for Christmas decorations.  John Adair will be working on this project.

We are still finalizing the construction contract on the pier.  We should have this completed by the end of next week.  The ARG will be vacating the pier soon.  After some final inspections and obtaining the demolition permits from DHEC, will be starting the demolition of the pier as soon as a couple of weeks.  We have all been waiting for this to happen.  I will keep you informed as things progress.
