OLD BUSINESS:

Road repairs.  Mayor has attempted to status check the decision on having the County repair the roads. Due to the pandemic, communication is few and far between as much of the County personnel may be working from home.

Planning has not been able to host a meeting to approve the Container Ordinance or the Comprehensive Plan.

DRB does have a date to meet.

Budget is complete.  Zach motions that we endeavor to follow procedure to enact the Budget.  Clerk to run Ad for first Reading at the next Council Meeting.

New Business:

Hazard Mitigation – Mayor to meet with CRS to discuss plans to mitigate flooding disaster.  Basically, the more the Town does to avoid flooding disaster the less the Town pays in flood insurance. It is recommended by the County that the Town adopts the revised Charleston Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan, as it has adopted previous versions. It serves as a checklist to avail ourselves of lower/higher? rating which directly affects flood insurance requirements. Mayor motions to accept as drafted the Charleston Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. Zach Nelson seconded.  Unanimously approved.

No Wake Zone – Increased boat traffic has impacted the waterfront as people are not slowing down as they pass by. Property has been damaged as of late. State Legislature must deem you a NO WAKE ZONE. DNR lacks the manpower to monitor the situation regularly.  The Town must submit an application to DNR who in turn sends an Investigator. The Investigator then makes a recommendation to the State. Expect it to be a long process. Criteria is mostly based on safety. Mayor to follow up on specifics of the procedure and possibly collect affidavits from waterfront property owners. 

Question – Should Council Members be notified of construction projects in the Town by other committees? Mayor does receive reports from other committees and suggests Council ask to be included in reporting emails.

SCHEDULING ORDER: Clerk to run ad for budget.

Motion to adjourn 7:40. Seconded by Frank Thornhill.
