The road cone managed to survive Rockville Regatta after a temporary visit atop of the Cherry Point Sign.
County has asked for a Short-Term Rental Policy beyond what is existing that would provide limitations. Mayor suggests waiting for larger quorum, but meanwhile Council should use the County STR Template as a guideline to consider this decision. A main goal would be to develop a policy that would disincentivize developers but not alienate current homeowners who do presently need this as a source of income (currently 75 nights year is allowed).
Zach Nelson question: What is the status of the road improvements to be performed by Charleston County? Mayor relays to Council that his correspondence with the County is ongoing, and that it has been expressed to the Mayor that the County is in the process of procuring the Grant Funds.
Mayor will request CDH Tree Service come for additional maintenance as the road has deteriorated with all the recent rain.
