SIPOA UPDATE ON GATE CLOSURE
CALL 911- NOT THE SECURITY GATE – FOR ANY EMERGENCY.
In anticipation of the Gatehouse closure on Monday morning (tomorrow) at 10:00 am, the Town of Seabrook Island has coordinated with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) to arrange access control on Seabrook Island Road between the traffic circle and the Gatehouse.
CCSO will not man the gate, but will verify Seabrook Island IDs before allowing vehicles past a checkpoint. This will begin on Monday at 8:00 am through Tuesday at 8:00 am. If you leave the island and plan to return, bring your driver’s license or other ID designating residence with you. No contractor or guest access is permitted.
If you’re in a low lying area that floods during high tides, for your safety please consider moving to another location before Monday morning.
Be aware, road flooding outside the gate may not allow you to access or leave the island without risking your safety. If you plan to stay, prepare to have adequate supplies for 24 hours or more at home, without power, and with limited Emergency services.
Many thanks to Mayor Ciancio and the Town Council for facilitating this coordination with CCSO.
REMINDER: SIPOA Operations
- The Lake House will be closed all day Monday and will resume operations no earlier than 10:00 am on Tuesday if conditions allow for staff access to the building.
- The SIPOA Admin Office will be staffed until 10:00 am on Monday and will reopen on Tuesday if conditions allow access.
- Garbage will be picked up tomorrow morning. Our contractor Priority-1 has agreed to service Seabrook Island first thing tomorrow. They are bringing an extra truck and will be finished and off the island before 12:00 noon. Please be sure your trash is out curbside NO LATER than 7:00 am, and please bring your can in immediately after it is emptied so it does not become a projectile later in the day if the wind picks up. We will update on yard debris schedule as soon as we get word.
