From the Desk of the Mayor
As we leave another election behind, I would like to take a minute to thanks Council Members Dale Stuckey and Pennell Clamp for time well served representing the City and citizens of Folly Beach. While we did not always agree, I can say without reservation that Council Members Stuckey and Clamp always worked and voted for what they truly believed to be in the best interest for you the citizens of Folly. I hope they enjoy their new-found leisure time and are ready to answer the call when our City needs their service or advice in the future.
Now is the time to say welcome to our newest council members Amy Ray and Bill Farley. Since they get to join the Council in the beginning throes of budget season it maybe some time before they feel their time is their own again. Welcome to the busy season of the Council. Hold on for the ride of your life.
Before I leave the election process, I want to thank everyone who voted, and especially everyone who voted for me. It is truly an honor to be able to serve you and our City as Mayor for another term. Your confidence in me and the City Staff does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. From me and all of my administration, I say THANK YOU.
I know everyone is getting ready for the sun and sand season. The big question is still the beach work. The groin work continues to progress well, on schedule and without any incidents. Due to major weather-related delays the dredging contractor has encountered on their current job, pumping sand onto the beach is now set to begin July 5th. The Corps of Engineers promises It will happen.
As previously stated, the Council will spend the next six or so weeks working on the operating budget for 2019. Stay tuned for the budget that will be delivered in June for the next fiscal year.
