Isle of Palms Ways and Means Committee Agenda, Tuesday, January 15, at 5 pm

January 12, 2019

As always, thank you for allowing me to be your mayor. I want to make sure everyone realizes that our form of government is not a strong mayor/weak council, but a weak mayor/strong council form. This is one where each of our departmental committees, are made up of 3 council members. Each committee, (personnel, public safety, public works, real property, and recreation) make decisions, that are then brought forth first to our Ways and Means Committee, which includes all council members, for approval and then to city council for final approval. All 8 members of council and the mayor have an equal vote. Several items of notice on this agenda, we have our COLA (Cost of Living Adjustments) and Merit increases, we also have to evaluate the condition of the bulk head at the marina, we need to take care of city assets that are under our control. We are also having to update our public safety radios, the old ones are outdated and will no longer have replacement parts. The last big one is a recommendation to award a contract for the Phase 1 portion of the public safety building remediation. We have a lot of challenges this year, but we have a council that is forward thinking, and one who puts you, our residents first. Hope to see y’all there.
