Beachfront Management Informational meeting

March 5, 2013

Several authorities were present for an informational meeting at Folly Beach City Hall on Tuesday night, including the US Army Corps of Engineers, DHEC, and the City of Folly Beach.  The meeting room was overflowing, and several guests made presentations to the group, followed by a question and answer period.  The mood was calm and helpful, and many issues were explored and considered.  The authorities explained the processes and reasoning behind permitting decisions, and offered assistance by meeting on site or helping fill out the proper applications.  A sign-up sheet was offered for a personal consultation.  It was clear they were not there to discuss specific requests, but more to explain the process of permitting.  Some of the issues discussed were property improvements in the authority‚Äôs jurisdiction, utilities and septic systems on private property, and the Folly Beach re-nourishment program.
