to have such loyal, dedicated employees.” Carroll expounded upon
the City’s past efforts to express its appreciation to its employees.
“We started out at The Windjammer, but that became a ‘political’
thing, with mainly councilpeople and their friends in attendance.
We tried bringing everyone together for a Riverdogs game, and at the
Aquarium…but had only about 25% participation.”
“We are in debt to everyone here for making IOP such a great
place to live,” Mayor Carroll pronounced. “Thank you for being part
of the City Family.”
The atmosphere was decidedly familial, with off-duty police officers
and firefighters joshing like siblings, some with their spouses and
children in tow. Starting as a dispatcher 21 years ago, after having
grown up on the island, Interim Chief of Police Kim Usry stated,
“Coming to work is like coming home. It’s awesome…I couldn’t ask
for anything better.”
The only thing missing from this family is dysfunction…
departments interact seamlessly; it’s hard to find friction or
discontent, either within or between departments.
“It’s amazing we can do this,” noted Wynette DeGroot, IOP Human
Relations Officer, who is credited with the idea of the luncheon.
“Today is about the employees, about longevity and milestones.”
“It’s a beautiful day under the Big Top,” quipped Councilman Ted
Kinghorn. “This is a great idea, and it’s long overdue. The City’s
employees deserve this.”

preserve their property in the same state it was in when they bought
it (e.g. little or no maritime forest). TOSI forged ahead, adding detail
to the plan, which was approved for a vote after a meeting in early
2016.
The plan included:
Band I (0-40 feet):
• All non-native invasive species of flora shall be eradicated
• All trees > 6” DBH shall be retained, except cedar and pine species
• All understory, shrubs (including myrtles), cedar and pine species
and small trees (defined as < 6” DBH) shall be removed
Band II (40-100 feet):
• All non-native invasive species of flora shall be eradicated
• All trees shall be retained within this band
• Where the band is adjacent to the forest areas: all understory,
shrubs and myrtles shall be removed
• Where the band is adjacent to grasslands, shrub and non-
forest areas: three-quarters (75%) of all existing myrtles shall be
removed as will any that sprout in their place. 25% of myrtles
shall remain in those areas where myrtles currently exist
Action on the above was deferred until the SC Court settled the
lawsuit in the Town’s favor in August 2018, clearing the way for TOSI
to proceed.
Council member Smith moved to amend the proposal reducing
actions associated with Band I to thirty feet, and keep trees >3”. He
garnered the votes of councilmembers Campbell and Langley, but
the amendment failed.
Councilmember Chauncey Clark offered his own amendment,
which involved expanding the actions in Band I to 60 feet among
other things, but couldn’t muster the votes. Council then returned
to core proposal detailed above, and couldn’t muster the votes. The
mayor closed the matter with a vow to address the matter at the
earliest possible date, but because the state is involved a drawing
board may be required.
The Town’s attorney announced completion of a year’s work on
TOSI’s comprehensive plan, and the finance department proposed
a 2% tax increase on property and business licenses (validation by
ordinance required), and building permits (validation by resolution
required).
Councilmember Tim Reese announced plans to increase dog
licensing fees by $15.
Exhausted, council then addressed the remaining agenda item; an
executive session for “Personnel – review of applications for terms…”
but decided it could wait for another time, and moved to adjourn
after 2 hours, 40 minutes and 47 seconds of vigorous debate. The
motion passed unanimously.
The next regular meeting of the Town of Sullivan’s Island will be

Registration open for Festival of Lights


T I C K E T S L I M I T E D F O R F U N R U N A N D W A L K N O V. 7 & 8

BY SARAH REYNOLDS
FOR ISLAND EYE NEWS

R
unners and walkers of all experience levels are
invited to traverse through hundreds of
spectacular light displays that fascinate
thousands every holiday season. This year’s
Holiday Festival of Lights Fun Run and Walk
takes place on Nov. 7 and 8 at James Island
County Park.
This unique event offers participants an
extraordinary opportunity to see the lights on foot
before the festival opens to the general public and
vehicular traffic. This two-mile, non-competitive run/
walk is offered on two evenings before the festival’s opening
– Wednesday, Nov. 7 and Thursday, Nov. 8. Registration is now open at
CharlestonCountyParks.com.
Much of the Holiday Festival of Lights is normally seen from a vehicle,
so the Fun Run and Walk offers a leisurely opportunity to explore the
displays up close. Participants will get a preview of the festival’s 700+
illuminated displays during the run/walk. Then, families can enjoy all
of the very merry amenities that the festival offers, including gift shops,
marshmallow roasting, train and carousel rides, and much more.
Advance registration is required for the Fun Run and Walk. Interested
participants are encouraged to register now before it sells out. Register
by phone at 843.795.4386 or online at CharlestonCountyParks.com by
3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 7. Race fees are $12. Rates increase to $15
per person after Nov. 7. Move It Pass holders receive a discounted rate
of $10 per ticket. Ages 2 and under are free, but will still need a ticket
to gain entry into the park. This is a wheelchair and stroller-friendly
course. Socialized dogs on short, non-retractable leashes are welcome.
Retractable leashes, bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades and scooters are
not permitted.
All participants must be pre-registered and have an admission ticket
to enter the park. There will be no on-site ticket sales. James Island
County Park will close to traffic at 6:30 p.m.; therefore, participants are
encouraged to arrive early. Flashlights are recommended for optimal
visibility. The park will reopen to traffic at approximately 8:30 p.m.
The Holiday Festival of Lights opens to the general public on Nov. 9 and
will be open nightly through Jan. 1, 2019, at James Island County Park.
The Holiday Festival of Lights and the Fun Run and Walk are presented
by The Boeing Company, Chick-fil-A and your Charleston County Parks.
