Latest News in Isle of Palms

South Carolina Professional Firefighter Association raises concern about low IOP pay

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — The South Carolina Professional Firefighters Association said the wages for the Isle of Palm Fire Department are not high enough.Th...

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — The South Carolina Professional Firefighters Association said the wages for the Isle of Palm Fire Department are not high enough.

The city of Isle of Palms said the lowest paid firefighter earns $12.55 an hour.

"They are not paying well. And they are not paying down the road, people are realizing it," said William Pesature, Vice President of the SC Professional Firefighter Association.

Pesature said in the firefighting world you want to build a team that has experience, training and standing.

He said the Isle of Palms is not doing that for their firefighters and a change needs to be made when it comes to pay.

He said the department has two problems: no fire chief for the last eight months and the firefighter pay rate.

"You should be able to afford a decent wage for your firefighters so that they want to stay there. If you have one of the richest cities in the state, and you are not taking care of your first responders? What's going to happen to your in an emergency situation?" he said.

Pesature said the issue should concern taxpayers on the island because when someone leaves the department the city has to pay to train a new employee.

"Training is very expensive. Because they have to pay for a person to go to school and then when they are supposed to be in the fire house (and) they have to pay someone overtime to cover their spot to maintain the standards of staffing," he said.

ABC News 4 reached out to the city for comment. Desiree Farago, the city administrator said in part, "The City is in the process of finalizing a wage and compensation analysis with the goal of identifying market based and competitive wages for all City positions. We expect the report and recommendations for adjustments will be in place before the end of the year."

"We have also collected feedback from every member of the fire department regarding how we reward high performance and increase wages throughout their tenure with the city that will be incorporated into new compensation policies," John Moye, an IOP councilman, said.

Moye said the consultant's leading the wage compensation plan should be presenting to council sometime in September.

CARTA’s summer beach shuttle from Mount Pleasant to Isle of Palms will be free

MOUNT PLEASANT — A summer weekend shuttle bus from Mount Pleasant to the Isle of Palms beachfront will start running May 29, and thanks to just-announced funding from the two municipalities it will be free to ride.

The shuttle will run hourly on Saturdays and Sundays through Sept. 6 from a stop at the Towne Centre shopping area in Mount Pleasant to the Isle of Palms beach access at Ocean Boulevard and 9th Avenue.

The shuttle will also run on Memorial Day and on Labor Day.

“With this service in place for the season, access to the ocean has never been greater for residents of the region,” said Mike Seekings, chairman of CARTA’s board.

When the Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority originally announced updated plans for the shuttle May 19, the short trip from Towne Centre to the Isle of Palms beach was going to cost riders $4 round-trip.

That’s because IOP at that time hadn’t committed to contribute funding.

“To date, the City of Isle of Palms has declined to contribute any funding to the Beach Reach shuttle service, which the city requested,” CARTA spokesman Daniel Brock said.

The transit advocacy group Best Friends of Lowcountry Transit also criticized the lack of financial support from Isle of Palms needed to make the shuttle free for riders.

But the following morning, May 20, Isle of Palms agreed to contribute $8,000 toward the cost of the shuttle — matching an equal contribution from Mount Pleasant — and CARTA said the shuttle would be free.

“We’ll definitely match Mount Pleasant’s because we want this to be successful,” said IOP Administrator Desiree Fragoso. “It’s something the city has been advocating and we’re happy that people are embracing different modes of transportation.”

She said the funding issue had been a miscommunication.

The summer shuttle will cost an estimated $24,000 to run, with CARTA, Mount Pleasant and Isle of Palms each paying $8,000.

CARTA did a test-run of the beach shuttle in the fall. It was prompted, in part, by Isle of Palms’ plan to eliminate much of the free parking at the beach — a plan that was later quashed by the S.C. Department of Transportation.

Brock said that although there’s more free parking at the beach than expected, the Beach Reach shuttle still serves an important need by increasing access to the beach for the area’s growing population.

William Hamilton, executive director of Best Friends of Lowcountry Transit, said the connection will allow some area residents to visit the beach for the first time. The shuttle will be coordinated with the existing Route 40 and Route 42 buses.

“Before this summer is over, we’ll be taking families with children to the beach on this bus who have never seen the ocean,” he said.

Hamilton noted that the bus stop on Isle of Palms has no seating or shade, and said he hopes the city will work on that.

Fragoso said the city will “be looking at what can be done to address that.”

The 9th Avenue beach access is two blocks south of the island’s beachfront commercial area, where there are shops, restrooms and beach showers.

The hourly shuttle will depart Towne Centre, from a stop on Market Center Boulevard near the Belk Men’s store starting at 9:15 a.m. The last return bus from Isle of Palms will leave at 5:35 p.m.

Riders will need to wear masks, shoes, shirt and pants, or beach cover-ups. Coolers will be allowed, but not bulky items such as surfboards or large beach umbrellas.

Route details and bus tracking will be available on the free Transit App, which can be downloaded from Apple’s App Store or Google Play.

ISLE OF PALMS — The city will recognize a man affectionately known as Beach Santa this week for his efforts in keeping the coast clean and bringing attention to the litter crisis plaguing beaches and waterways.

Howard Hogue will receive the Isle of Palm’s Signal 30 Award at a city council meeting on July 27. The award is given on a limited basis with the approval of the city council for special citizen service.

Hogue, of Moncks Corner, has become a staple on the beach at the Isle of Palms. He is known for his big white beard and is often seen wearing red swimming trunks and a red muscle shirt as he walks along the shore with a litter grabber and bucket.

He picks up litter as he walks and regularly stops to take pictures and talk with beachgoers.

From the summer of 2018 to the end of May 2021, Hogue documented collecting more than 55,000 litter and debris items from the Isle of Palms Beach and more than 75,000 items from the streetscape and parking lots in the island’s Front Beach commercial district.

But his cleanup efforts expand farther than the Isle of Palms and includes other parts of the Charleston region, too. It is believed that he has collected more than 425,000 litter items across the Lowcountry.

“Beach Santa has done an incredible service by helping to keep our island beautiful and protect the coastal ecosystem and public health from pollution,” said Isle of Palms Mayor Jimmy Carroll in a news release.

Carroll said Hogue is an inspiration and great role model, and he thanks him for his volunteer efforts.

Susan Hill Smith, a city councilwoman and the Isle of Palms Cleanup Crew co-founder, said the 425,000-plus items collected by Hogue was done with “a twinkle in his eye.”

“This kind crusader gladly talks with those on the beach who ask about what he’s doing, ready to share a message for all who will listen about the importance of doing our part to protect the environment and shared public spaces,” Hill said.

To help prevent some of the beach litter, Isle of Palms began restricting smoking on the beach and beach access points in 2020, plus prohibited single-use retail plastic bags, plastic straws, balloons, and Styrofoam coolers, cups and food containers.

Hogue is continuing to document his litter sweeps and anticipates exceeding half a million litter items by the end of 2021.

Following statement provided by the candidate

With Phillip Pound’s transition to his role as Mayor of Isle of Palms, I will be running for the open Council seat in the April 5 election. I’d first like to extend sincere gratitude to our City Council and Administration. You served endless hours over the past few years addressing pressures of not only day-to-day operations of the City, but also dealing with often conflicting demands of residents, businesses, visitors, surrounding communities, and State/Federal issues. The Covid pandemic magnified the obvious, way beyond our city limits – we’re very fortunate to live in a unique paradise, where all want to enjoy, live and access freely. Our community continues to face challenges and opportunities from accelerating regional growth. We’ll need to collaborate with residents, local businesses, other municipalities, and representatives/agencies at the County, State and Federal levels to address the impacts. I believe representation is your voice being clearly heard and reflected in sound public policy, actions and results.

As your representative, my commitment and goals are straightforward:

• Protect our quality of life

• Provide proactive, respectful, objective, and accountable leadership for effective governance

• Be transparent & responsive

• Keep our community safe

My community involvement offers a strong foundation to serve you. Over the years, I’ve attended innumerable Council and community meetings to help address neighborhood concerns, parking, public safety and provide assistance with City budget preparations. I currently serve on the IOP Planning Commission. It’s a privilege to work collaboratively with teams of resident professionals, addressing island issues including drainage projects, sewer & septic challenges, IOP’s Comprehensive Plan, and most recently resident Livability impacts of short-term rentals. Other community participation includes: addressing environmental concerns, identifying potential traffic & parking solutions, Adopt-a-Highway, IOP charity runs & beach sweeps, transparency efforts, Exchange Club member, Barrier Island Preservation Alliance supporter, sponsor of IOP’s Law Enforcement Neighborhood Support (LENS) program, Marina free access & greenspace, and VFW auxiliary member. As personal background, my wife Jennie and I have been married for over 35 years. We have two wonderful children who live out West and all our other relatives live in the Carolinas and Georgia. Our frequent visits, plus the warm reception we received while making the Isle of Palms our winter/ spring home for several years, led us to make the Isle of Palms our permanent home in 2015. My qualifications and skills to serve you include 28-years as an executive with Verizon, including responsibility for global operations, customer service, mergers & acquisitions, division CFO, supply chain, procurement, systems implementation, and disaster recovery.

Since retiring from Verizon in 2011, I have owned and operated a management consulting firm, focused on delivering Fortune 25 enterprise systems. I am a CPA, CFP®, and retired Registered Investment Advisor. I enjoy assisting entrepreneurs launch new businesses and am a partner in a LEED certified data center. I have a BS in Accounting, and an MBA in Decision Science & Finance. I would be honored to represent you on Council and feel free to contact me anytime. I ask for your vote on April 5.

SC might make beaches provide free parking. Isle of Palms begs McMaster to veto bill

In a move that puts a South Carolina beach community at odds with both its neighbors and the state legislature, Isle of Palms voted Friday to oppose a state bill that would require free and unrestricted beach parking along state highways.

The city’s resolution, which passed 7-0 during a special City Council meeting, carries no weight of law, but it does express the city’s disapproval of a bill introduced by state Sen. Larry Grooms, R-Berkeley.

The legislation would require South Carolina’s beach communities to provide at least some free parking on state roads.

It also would give towns the authority to include paid public beach parking and to use those funds to maintain, operate and preserve things like beach parking facilities; beach access, maintenance, and renourishment; traffic and parking enforcement; first responders; sanitation; and litter control and removal.

The Isle of Palms council meeting Friday morning took all of 3 minutes and 12 seconds. Two council members, Ryan Buchannon and Phillip Pounds, did not attend.

Mayor Jimmy Carroll, reading from the resolution, said the goal was to express the city’s opposition to the implementation of the legislation “by all lawful means necessary.”

It also urges S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster to veto the bill when it gets to his desk.

The resolution also claims the legislation “clearly discloses that barrier island communities, including the Isle of Palms, are being singled out and treated differently from other municipal entities in this state in a politically motivated, unconstitutional response to the City’s actions taken in the interest of public health and safety.”

It continues, alleging the bill “violates The Home Rule Act, which explicitly gives municipalities the sole power to control roads and streets within the municipality for the public health.”

“Home rule has always been a fundamental part of why South Carolina is so wonderful,” Councilman John Moye said in an emailed statement following the vote. “When home rule is threatened at this scale, issues that local leaders and communities know how to best address are suddenly being managed by politicians in Columbia.”

Isle of Palms, which is located across the Intracoastal Waterway from Mount Pleasant, has become the nexus of South Carolina’s beach parking drama. The back-and-forth over free versus paid parking has sparked debates over who deserves access to state’s public sands.

The debate intensified last year when South Carolina closed public access to its beaches, all of which the state owns, at the start of the pandemic in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. After McMaster reopened the beaches in late April, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island and Folly Beach took a more gradual approach, issuing their own emergency orders to restrict public beach access and reduce the number of nonresidents coming in at the time.

Isle of Palms is facing a lawsuit over its 2020 decision to temporarily block nonresidents from using more than 750 parking spots near the beach, leaving just 10 free spaces for visitors.

All beaches are now open to the public.

Recently, ahead of the busy summer tourist season, the S.C. Department of Transportation installed approximately 240 angled spaces on the land side of the state-owned Palm Boulevard, stretching from 22nd to 40th Ave.

State Rep. Joe Bustos, R-Charleston, argued on the House floor last week that the bill was not ready for a vote and urged further debate.

“This is not a beach access bill. This is a beach parking bill, and we need to understand that,” Bustos said.

His attempts to table the bill were unsuccessful.

The local resolution that passed Friday now puts Isle of Palms at odds with Mount Pleasant, a neighboring town that in January passed a resolution to show public support for Grooms’ bill.

The bill, S. 40, passed its final reading May 13 in a 102-10 vote in the state House. It now heads to McMaster’s desk.

It is still unclear whether McMaster will sign the bill into law.

“Governor McMaster is still in the process of reviewing the bill and greatly appreciates all input,” said Brandon Charochak, a spokesman for the governor. “He will make a final decision in the coming days.”

Memorial Day weekend, considered the unofficial start of the summer tourist season, is next week.

A group calling themselves the Barrier Island Preservation Alliance welcomed the move by Isle of Palms on Friday.

The group’s stated mission is to foster dialogue and community engagement to address the unique challenges of barrier island beaches.

Morgan Harris, an Isle of Palms resident and member of the alliance, said council members share their goals.

“They, like we, want Isle of Palms to continue to be an open and welcoming community that is safe for families, businesses and visitors alike. And they believe, as so many of us do, that we, rather than Columbia bureaucrats and politicians, are best equipped to make decisions about parking in Isle of Palms,” Harris said.
