PRESENTATION OF OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

A special thank you to Buddy Bailey and the Maintenance Staff for making the entrance to Port Royal Plantation look so beautiful. Thank you, also, to the Island Beautification Association for taking the time to visit and review each of the nine communities and recognizing Port Royal Plantation's entrance.
BEACH RE-NOURISHMENT PROJECT
On May 2, 2014, the hauling of sand for the beach re-nourishment project was complete. During the week of May 5th . TIC, the contractor hired by the Town of Hilton Head Island, completed the hauling of the sand stock pile, re-graded the site, restored the damaged areas on the beach and demobilized by removing all the equipment. There is still some work to be done in restoring the lawn area at the Beach House. We are working with the town to get this project completed. Also, due to permit requirements, the area will be tilled to loosen the surface 18 to 24 inches. All beach access paths have been reopened and the signs removed.
This project was very successful and all should be commended for a job well done, including residents for their patience and understanding before and during the project. A special thank you to the Beach Preservation Committee chaired by Howard Ackerman, the Board of Directors, HHI Town Council (particularly John McCann), Scott Liggett, Town Engineer, Olsen Associates Inc., TIC Contractors and their sub-contractors for all the time, effort and hard work that was dedicated to this project.
Contractor Driver's License Policy
In April's The Trident, information was provided concerning the new Contractors Driver License Policy approved in March by the Board of Directors. The policy requires that all contractors purchasing a daily or weekly pass or annual decal must provide a valid driver's license, certificate of insurance and current vehicle registration. This policy was approved to limit the Association's liability and protect you from other drivers who may not have a valid driver's license, vehicle registration or insurance. This policy may or may not affect you, but it is important that you communicate this change with your contractors and/or service vendors prior to their arrival. Some vendors are traveling long distances to provide services, as well as you are expecting them to arrive according to your schedule. The administration office has been proactively communicating the driver's license requirement with contractors who have purchased passes over the last month. Beginning May 1, 2014, all contractors will be required to show a valid driver's license, current vehicle registration and certificate of insurance prior to purchasing a pass to enter the community. If they do not provided the proper information, a pass will not be issued.
