The meeting of the James Island Board of Zoning Appeals that was tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, November 20th has been cancelled because there were no cases to hear.
The James Island Pride team was out Saturday morning on Harbor view Road picking up trash. Many thanks to Councilwoman Berry and the rest of the James Island Pride team for putting the event together. Mayor Woolsey and Councilman Kernodle were on hand to help. The Scouts from Troop 44 and also from Pack 111 provided the manpower. The Harbor Creek Community provided snacks for the hungry scouts. Thanks again to everyone for making the effort a big success.
There is a tropical storm watch for James Island. While Sandy is anticipated to stay well out to sea and make landfall much further north, please be watchful.
Since August 3, my computer has been opening to the following page:
The candidate forum for House District 115 was very successful. Approximately 75 citizens attended. Thank you to the James Island Messenger for sponsoring the forum.
State Representative Peter McCoy and challenger Carol Tempel will meet in a forum at James Island Town Hall on Thursday, October 25th at 7:00 PM.
The Research and Statistics Division of the Budget and Control Board has given an official estimate of the population of the Town of James Island: 11,524. This is slightly less than the estimate they provided in November of 2011: 11,821. That was included with the petition for incorporation and was based upon the list of properties Free James Island sent to the Research and Statistics Division in September 2011. The reason for the change was the 150 properties annexed into the City of Charleston between September 2011 and April 24, 2012.
This figure was essential for the Town to begin to receive our share of Local Option Sales tax and also the State Aid to Subdivisions. Our Town administrator, Hal Mason, made many phone calls to Columbia over this month.
If you see Representative Peter McCoy, please give him a special thank you for his help in getting this estimate.
The Town of James Island is accepting annexation petitions from all property owners who live in the unincorporated portions of James Island.
This includes all former residents of the Town.
When legal contiguity is established, Town Council will be able vote to bring us back together. It is our judgement that for most properties this will require a change in the annexation laws in Columbia. Representative Peter McCoy is already working in Columbia to make the necessary changes.
Please show your support for the Town by completing an annexation petition right away. Come by Town Hall, call us at 795-4141, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The agenda for the regular Town Council meeting for October 18 is here.
