ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCSC) - Officials with the City of Isle of Palms have named Craig Oliverius as the new fire chief.
This comes after city leaders unanimously approved a recommendation from the city administrator to appoint Oliverius who is the deputy chief of the Mount Pleasant Fire Department.
Oliverius will start his new job on March 29 and will oversee 34 full-time employees and an annual budget of approximately $5 million, city officials said.
Oliverius began his career as a volunteer firefighter in the Sullivan’s Island Fire Department before joining Mount Pleasant as a firefighter. IOP officials say during his 20-year career, Oliverius rose through the ranks serving in wide areas including emergency response, operations, fire prevention, training, human resources, public relations, administration, emergency medical services and professional standards.
In addition, the city says Oliverius was instrumental in the planning and development of the Mount Pleasant Fire Department’s Strategic Plan and in maintaining accredited status through the Commission on Fire Accreditation International.
“I am thrilled for Chief Oliverius to join our team at Isle of Palms. He has impressive qualifications and well-rounded experience working in an accredited Fire Department,” said City Administrator Fragoso. “We are fortunate to be able to draw from that experience and ensure that the Isle of Palms Fire Department is a beacon for professionalism and service to our community. His desire to foster innovation, collaborate with our partners, develop stronger relationships with our neighbors, and mentor the next generation of fire service leaders will truly benefit the Isle of Palms Fire Department and the community.”
City officials say they retained the services of executive recruiting firm Developmental Associates to facilitate the search for the new fire chief.
“I am humbled and honored to have this amazing opportunity to work with the City of Isle of Palms Administrator, Council, Firefighters, Staff, and Elected Officials,” Oliverius said. “I look forward to hitting the ground running to lead and serve alongside this talented group of firefighters and staff. I’m excited to develop community partnerships as well as enhance existing public safety relationships. My goal is to deliver excellent customer service to everyone the fire department comes in contact with, including residents, businesses, and visitors.”
“We are thrilled to add someone to our IOP family with Craig’s credentials and background. Craig will be a great addition to an already strong department,” Mayor Pounds said.

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — Isle of Palms City Council held a special meeting Thursday to review the lease of the marina.
The debate: whether beer and wine can be sold and consumed at the marina.
Some say this wouldn't be an issue because people already drink beer by the marina and it hasn't caused any trouble. However, others believe allowing beer and wine could cause concern for parents.
"It seems like every time we amend this lease, we give more to the tenant and take away from the city," said councilmember Katie Miars.
Miars is hesitant about the current lease agreement. She worries selling beer and wine could change the family friendly environment the marina holds.
"Granted, some people have a beer on the back - just like some people are going to have a beer on the beach, but when you make it legal - it becomes different," Miars said.
Still, others say they don't see a problem with allowing beer and wine.
"I do not see where this has to be that big of an issue, by allowing someone to sit there with a sandwich a fish basket, and have a beer with it, and being able to walk away satisfied," said councilman Rusty Streetman.
That's because many people say they already see beer consumption along the marina.
"So I do not personally see the issue on this is going to explode because this has been happening for the past 25 years and I have not seen this explode," said councilman Blair Hahn.
Neighbors say they just want clarity.
"The problem is the conversations have been with the restaurant, the marina store, and the council, and as a resident there has been no information," said Christine Donaven, an IOP resident.
The CEO of Coastal Marinas, Mike Schuler, is hoping to enter into this lease agreement with Isle of Palms. His goal is to cater to the community.
"In fact, we have gone to great lengths to ensure self imposed limitations on any consumption of alcohol on the premise, in what I think is a very reasonable way," Schuler said.
Some of Coastal Marina's plans include giving Isle of Palms residents better access to water, including free parking, priority access to slips, and upgrading retail offerings and operations along the marina.

A lot has been written about the port city of Charleston, South Carolina, with its southern charm, cobblestone streets and colorful pre-war architecture.
However, little might be known of the region’s coastal offerings. Just a half hour’s drive northeast of the city sits the Isle of Palms, Charleston’s resort island and home to the Wild Dunes Resort, encompassing 1,600 acres of Lowcountry charm and vacation leisure.
This beachside vacation getaway includes hotels, condos and waterfront homes offering short stays or longer-term seasonal rentals.
With so many options, it is the perfect choice for weddings, corporate events and family getaways. Recreational opportunities include a 36-hole golf course, designed by Tom Fazio, tennis, pickelball, bicycling and seven miles of beaches on which to play or chill. Walking and jogging paths wind throughout the island and you might even run into a family of deer on your jaunt.
Within Wild Dunes, located beachside on the north end of the Isle of Palms, two adjacent hotels include the Boardwalk Inn and the, newly-constructed, Sweetgrass Inn. Just one year old, the Sweetgrass is a Destination by Hyatt hotel offering 153 guest rooms and suites, restaurants, spa and rooftop bar.
The Nest, with its colorful Andy Davis mural, offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic and surrounding property, while sipping signature cocktails. The Shoppes of Sweetgrass are located on an adjacent walkway, comprised of restaurants, market, shops, and even an art gallery. The Gallery at Sweetgrass features regional, as well as nationally recognized artists, some in residence.
Restaurants include the full-service Coastal Provisions, located at the Boardwalk Inn, as well as the more casual pool-side Laughing Gull at Sweetgrass. Both restaurants feature their signature 7 Mile Burger and Lager, named after the Isle of Palms 7-mile stretch of beach. The Oystercatcher, in the Sweetgrass lobby, offers smaller plates and shareable dishes along with signature cocktails.
For even more casual fare, Hudson’s Café and Market provides food and drink to enjoy in your room, taking advantage of the views from your balcony. Next to Hudson’s you’ll find Coastal Crust for pizza and other Italian cuisine. Additional eateries are dotted throughout the resort, so no chance you’ll be hungry on this trip.
Nothing beats a relaxing massage while on vacation and The Spa at Sweetgrass is the perfect choice to complement the laid-back vibe of this resort. With two plunge pools, beach yoga and even an optional meditation and sound bath experience on the sand, you can indulge and immerse yourself in a calm, yet energized, state of mind. Private spa cabanas are also available for a retreat with family and friends, and the gift shop provides beautiful examples of the region as a reminder of your stay.
The opportunities for exploration are abundant. Barrier Island Eco Tours offers your choice of boat junket to Capers Island Preserve, home of bone-yard beach. The natural erosion of the shoreline has created an eerie spectacle of trees with roots exposed in bizarre shapes. You’ll glide through salt marshes with views of dolphins playing in the surf and stop to check the occasional blue crab trap, while Captain Shane describes the wondrous ecosystem.
And don’t forget downtown Charleston, where you can stroll historic King Street with its boutiques and restaurants, loaded with Southern charm and housed in architecturally diverse buildings.
A local dining favorite, Hall’s Chophouse, offers USDA Prime steaks from Allen Brothers of Chicago, as well as fresh seafood and signature cocktails. Family-owned, this gathering spot serves everything from wet-aged filet mignon to a 34-ounce Tomahawk ribeye. Of course, shrimp and grits are on the menu along with other options from the sea. A must-try is their signature Pepper Jack Creamed Corn Skillet, not to mention Whiskey Bread Pudding for dessert. Hall’s is the place to see and be seen so get your reservation early.
Shopping options are diverse, and horse-drawn carriage tours and nighttime graveyard walks are a must. The iconic Pineapple Fountain on the waterfront park is Charleston’s symbol of hospitality and an Instagram-worthy sight. Photo ops abound at every turn but don’t forget to take in the ambiance and gentile essence of the city.
It’s all about the Lowcountry culture in Charleston, Southern charm mixed with shrimp and grits and Virgil Kaine whiskey. The Gullah sweetgrass basket weavers throughout the city, the colorful houses on Rainbow Row and a hearty Lowcountry boil, all round out the vibe one gets when visiting this part of the south. The Wild Dunes Resort conveniently includes all of this laid-back charm in one sprawling location.
Travel Advisors enjoy a generous partnership through the Hyatt Prive program with commission on all bookings and exclusive offers for clients.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority will resume its Beach Reach Shuttle service later this month.
The agency announced Wednesday the free seasonal park-and-ride shuttle that provides a connection between Mount Pleasant and the Isle of Palms, will relaunch on May 28.
The service will operate on Saturdays and Sundays through Sept. 5, as well as on Memorial, Independence and Labor Days.
“We work hard at CARTA to make sure we’re providing a cost-effective and efficient way of getting people where they need to go – and, in the summer months, that includes the beach,” CARTA Board of Directors Chairman Mike Seekings said. “Thanks to our Isle of Palms, Mount Pleasant and Towne Centre partners, we’re able to once again make that happen, and we look forward to re-introducing our riders to the Beach Reach Shuttle.”
Each Saturday, the shuttle will run every hour from 9:15 a.m. (first departure from Towne Centre) to 5:30 p.m. (final departure from Isle of Palms). On Sundays, in order to improve efficiency and ease necessary transfers, the shuttle will run every hour from 9:40 a.m. to 5:55 p.m.
“The Town of Mount Pleasant is proud to stand alongside CARTA, Isle of Palms and our very own Towne Centre to bring the Beach Reach Shuttle back into service,” Town of Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie said. “I hope folks throughout our community and beyond will join us in taking advantage of this exciting opportunity to make the most of this summer.”
“This has been a team effort in the truest sense of the term, and we’re glad to be working alongside our remarkable partners to increase beach access and share the beauty of the Isle of Palms shoreline this summer,” City of Isle of Palms Mayor Philip Pounds said.
Riders should plan to arrive at least five minutes prior to the scheduled departure time.
Beach Reach riders will be able to board the shuttle at stop No. 715, behind the Belk Men’s store in Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, and disembark at 9th Avenue and Ocean Boulevard, adjacent to the Isle of Palms beach access.
CARTA provided the following rules for the shuttle service:
Full route details and bus tracking can be found in the Transit App, which is available for download in the Apple and Google Play stores. Riders can also view traffic conditions and municipal information for all area beaches via the Beach Reach app, which is also available for Apple and Google smartphones.

Get geared up for a fantastic fall lineup of live music in Charleston. But before that, don’t miss out on these end-of-summer shows.
Mark your calendars and snag your tickets now for these concerts happening throughout the month of September. Here are 10 highlights.
7 p.m. Sept. 2 at Credit One Stadium, 161 Seven Farms Drive, Daniel Island | creditonestadium.com | $25+
The country lovers should appreciate a lot of acts that have been coming to Credit One Stadium, and during September, this is a big one. Sam Hunt, the hitmaker behind “Body Like a Back Road” and “Make You Miss Me,” is performing with special guests Ryan Hurd and Lily Rose. General admission starts at $25, with pricier floor seats still available as well.
9 p.m. Sept. 4 at The Royal American, 970 Morrison Drive, downtown Charleston | theroyalamerican.com | $10 cash day of show
A local hip-hop showcase on an intimate bar stage? This is the show of the month to catch at The Royal American, though I highly recommend checking out Dawning on Sept. 9 and The High Divers on Sept. 17. There’s a few more weekend gigs sprinkled throughout the month I won’t be missing either; the full calendar is at theroyalamerican.com. This particular standing-room show is sure to be packed and dancey, so come prepared.
8 p.m. Sept. 7 at Music Farm, 32 Ann St., downtown Charleston | musicfarm.com | $20 advance, $25 day of show
I missed Knoxville, Tenn’s “American Idol” quarter-finalist Briston Maroney when he opened for Rainbow Kitten Surprise at the Woodlands Nature Reserve during a thunderstorm. But I won’t be missing him at Music Farm early next month. His 2018 track “Freakin’ out on the Interstate” is a playlist rotation for me, and 2021 album “Sunflower” offers a vulnerable storytelling and overwhelming appreciation for life that is simply inspiring. Medium Build will open the show.
8 p.m. Sept. 9 at Charleston Music Hall, 37 John St., downtown Charleston | charlestonmusichall.com | $25 advance, $30 day of show
This indie rock band formed by Doug Martsch in Boise, Idaho, in the ’90s has eight full-length albums under its belt and has been noted as an influence of the “Midwest emo” genre. If you’re wondering what Midwest emo is, just give “Perfect From Now On” a spin. Punk-tinged The French Tips and Brazilian psychedelic outfit Oruã will open the show.
6 p.m. Sept. 10 at The Windjammer, 1008 Ocean Blvd., Isle of Palms | the-windjammer.com | $55 advance, $65 day of show
This doubleheader of High Water Festival alumni is sure to be a show to remember at The Windjammer’s outdoor sunset stage on the volleyball court. If you’re splurging for a beachfront show this month, this is a premier choice. Both bands have an undeniable folk influence to their sounds, under the ultimate rock umbrella. The slow ballads of the bunch — “All Your Favorite Bands” by Dawes and “Caught Me Thinking” by Bahamas — are my undeniable favorites.
8 p.m. Sept. 13 at Credit One Stadium, 161 Seven Farms Drive, Daniel Island | creditonestadium.com | $312+
This might be the splurge of the year you’ve been waiting for. Elton John is on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, so this might be one of the last chances to catch him live in concert. Of course, the tickets started out at $179, but since then Ticketmaster prices have skyrocketed (“Rocket Man” style) to $312 and up. It could be worth it if you can swing it. I saw Sir Elton in Columbia a few months back, and it was one for the bucket list and the books. All the singalong hits!
Editor’s Note: The Resonance Music & Arts Festival will no longer be taking place at the Woodlands Nature Reserve on Sept. 15-17.
Sept. 15-17 at Woodlands Nature Reserve, 4279 Ashley River Road, Charleston | woodlandsnaturereserve.com | $70 Saturday only, $130 Friday and Saturday, $180 Thursday, Friday and Saturday, $400 VIP
This three-day music and arts festival is another example of the events that Woodlands Nature Reserve is capable of hosting. The nature reserve offers plenty of space in the forest — the prime environment for a multi-day festival with an overnight camping option. This particular festival called Resonance will star some major acts with jam band energy that you’d normally catch at the Pour House. They include Goose, Umphrey’s McGee, Papadosio, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Moon Hooch and Charleston’s own Doom Flamingo.
9 p.m. Sept. 16 at Music Farm, 32 Ann St, downtown Charleston | musicfarm.com | $17 advance, $19 day of show
Lend some local love to a Charleston band that has garnered quite the indie rock fan base over the past half-decade. Brave Baby has all the chill and catchy tunes; “Plastic Skateboard,” “Forty Bells” and “Soothsayer” are impossible not to sing along to once you know the lyrics.
7:30 p.m. Sept. 28 at North Charleston Performing Arts Center, 5001 Coliseum Drive | northcharlestoncoliseumpac.com | $195+
Another example of tickets jumping in price the closer it gets to the show is this much-anticipated concert at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. Earth, Wind & Fire will be performing their R&B dance hits from yesteryear, from “Boogie Wonderland” to “September.”
7 p.m. Sept. 30 at Firefly Distillery, 4201 Spruill Ave., North Charleston | fireflydistillery.com | $44+
Tickets are almost sold out for this neo-psychedelic-meets-heartland rock act at Firefly Distillery, a venue that’s been booking a stellar lineup of big, out-of-town acts this year. The outdoor space has plenty of room to spread out on blankets or in chairs, and food trucks are on-site. I’m also looking forward to October’s Death Cab for Cutie, The Head and the Heart and Flaming Lips. Be sure to get tickets for those now.
