We, the Board, want to thank all those who responded to our request for a vote on
the revised security contract that would authorize Capt. Mike Sears (only) to be
armed while on duty here in the Island Green Community. The vote was
overwhelmingly in favor of this revision and we will be signing the contract
immediately. Again, thank you for participating and for your various comments.
 
Board of Directors
Island Green General Council of HOAs

The General Council Board has decided to cancel the April 10th General Council meeting due to health and safety concerns relating to COVID-19 (corona virus). 

A decision will be made at a later date about the May meeting.  Currently set for May 8th.


Once our treasurer and secretary submit their reports to website designer, Bob Worrel, he will post the info to our website which is www.islandgreensecurity.com.

Everyone please stay safe, healthy and practice the social distancing recommended by Gov. McMaster and health care officials. 
 
*************************************************************************************
 
As the website designer I just want to add this.
In order for us to get through this dreadful time we need to heed and follow what our State and Federal leaders request of us.
STAY AT HOME.
Wash your hands after doing almost anything.
Going to the supermarket will eventually be needed. If so, remember social distancing. Don't go to your favorite market and have to deal with 100 shoppers. Find one that's not as busy. Remember, none of the markets have toilet paper. My wife and I were headed to ours. While on Rt 17 we passed the Garden City Connector and noticed that the Food Lion only had 12 cars in the lot. We went there instead. Half of those cars were the employees. Just a couple of customers.
Even though you need to stay home, you need to get out, go take a walk around the block. See a neighbor, say hi. Remember social distancing!
Yard work and home repairs that you have been putting off is becoming very popular. Any of those will require a trip to a home improvement store. Remember social distancing!
 
I've heard of neighbors getting together to play cards. Not a good idea. You never know where they have been. Being around a card table is NOT social distancing! So, think twice about that.
So, be safe, be smart, and remember social distancing!
Always wash your hands.
 
Hopefully we will see you at the May meeting.

Bob Williamsen attended the March 8th, 2019 meeting. Take a look at the hand out that Mr Williamsen gave out at the meeting. 

It was added to our website Home Page on the left side called "Williamsen meeting 3-8-2019. Just click on it to see the hand out.

 

Also, take a look at the Meeting Notes that Beth put together. That is located in the Reports Tab, then choose "Meeting Reports".

Then select Mar 2019 to see the meeting notes.

All meeting notes are added each month so you can see what was discussed at the meetings.


Bob Williamsen has advised us that he and Steve Powell will probably attend our meeting on Friday, March 8th.  He has asked for a special meeting of HOA Presidents, but was told that the place and time for this is at our monthly meeting.  He expects to be here around 10:30.  His purpose is to provide an update on his construction plans.  He will be limited to a brief presentation.  I know our people will extend the courtesy to hear what he has to say and not engage in debate or criticism at this time.  Bob Becher.


Countywide Reassessment of Real Properties Underway for 2019 Tax Year

 

Conway, SC (January 23, 2019)-- A state-mandated, countywide reassessment of all real properties located in Horry County is underway for tax year 2019. A reassessment ensures that property taxes are determined on an updated fair market value of properties. The Horry County Assessor’s Office is in the process of appraising all property values at fair market value as of December 31, 2018. This new value will be used for calculating property tax bills issued by the Horry County Treasurer’s Office during October 2019. The Assessor’s Office is responsible for determining property values, but they do not set tax rates.

 

Residents may notice staff and vehicles from the Horry County Assessor’s Office in their neighborhoods during the appraisal process. The Horry County Assessor's Office uses a mass appraisal system with data including information such as heated square footage, garages, decks, pools, type and quality of construction, land area, water features, and several other attributes required for the mass appraisal process. Appraisers in the field are working to confirm those data points and make updates as needed. 

 

In September 2019, a notice of reassessment will be mailed to all property owners in Horry County whose property’s market value increases $1,000 or more as a result of reassessment. Only real property is appraised during a reassessment, which includes land and any improvements on it such as a house, outbuilding, swimming pool, or dock. During a reassessment, the Assessor’s Office will review the market values of all properties in the county. Based on changes in the real estate market, the Assessor’s Office will determine which property values need to be increased or decreased.

 

The South Carolina Code of Laws requires that once every five years all real property in every county within the State will be reappraised and adjusted to current fair market value as of December 31 of the year prior to implementing the reassessment. Only real property is appraised during a reassessment. Values of personal property, such as cars and boats, are adjusted on an annual basis and kept current through the Horry County Auditor’s Office at the direction of the South Carolina Department of Revenue. The purpose of a reassessment is to equalize the valuations of all real property in a county. The five-year reassessment cycle in South Carolina is an appraisal freeze, only broken on property sale or change to a property.

The General Council has come up with a new agenda format. It is really just a checklist for our meetings every month. If there is an important addition needed to be added to the agenda, such as a guest speaker, that will be noted in the aganda for that month.

You can take a look at it by clicking on the link on the left side of the screen labeled "General Council Meeting Agenda".


I spoke to Beth, our secretary today, about the timely uploading of each monthly meeting report. We agreed to fore go waiting until the next monthly meeting for the meeting notes to be approved before we upload them to the General Council website. So, they will be uploaded as soon as Beth has a chance to transcribe them into a Word document. That is usually just a day or to depending on her schedule. 

The November Meeting report is there now. Take a look.

I added notes from the latest meeting with Bob Williamsen on November 9,2018. He is the owner of the Island Green Golf Course, the Club House and Sunnehanna Drive.

The link to this document is on the left side of this screen, just below the agenda link.

The Security Reports section has changed.

The new location is on the "Reports" button. It also has an arrow pointing down on it.

Move your mouse over the "Reports" button and 2 options appear below it.

"Meeting Reports" and "Security Reports"

"Security Reports" are the same as before. All of the Security Reports are still out there.

"Meeting Reports" is a new option. One of our viewers requested that we add the General Council meeting notes to the website so people not in Island Green can see what went on at the monthly meetings. I thought that to be a cool idea and followed through with that request.

So, click on "Meeting Reports" and it will take you there. It will be the same format as the Security Reports, by the month and year.

The first one available was June 2018. Here is how the "Meeting Reports" will work. We had the General Council meeting today, Nov 9th. Beth, our secretary, took notes from the meeting. We cannot publish the notes until they are OK'd by the general public at the next General Council meeting in December. So, because of that delay, we are going to be a month behind. 

Sorry, that's all I can do unless they change the approval process.


I added the securiy report for October.

The Agenda for the November 9th Council meeting. Remember Bob Williamsen will be there to speak to the community.

The Amenity Center calendar is also updated for November.

We'll see you at the General Council meeting. Thanks for your support.

Bob W.


I added the minutes from the meeting Pastor Tommy had on 10/19/18. Please see the link on the left side of this page. 

It is called MEETING PASTOR TOMMY 10-19-18


 I updated the security report for September and the agenda for October 2018


Dear Friends & Neighbors,

 
       You know from TV that Hurricane Florence is fast approaching and will impact us heavily by Thursday or so.  As a result, evacuation of this area is mandatory and most facilities and services will be closed.  Locally, the Amenity Center will close starting at noon Tuesday, probably through the weekend.  Phoenix Security will close their office and all field locations after tonight, Monday/Tuesday.  Captain Mike Sears says he will attempt to get here if possible, without pay, and watch for looters and unwanted visitors, but he cannot guarantee complete coverage.  He is trying to recruit another guard to assist, too.  Residents may have to call 911 in any emergency if help is needed. 
 
       The Island Green General Council meeting scheduled for Friday morning is CANCELLED, not just postponed as previously suggested.  We will meet on normal schedule on Friday, October 12th and include updates from June through September.  I have invited Bob Williamsen, golf course owner, to our November meeting to show us his latest development plans and discuss progress, including his firm contract with L.G.I. Homes, a subsidiary of Horton Homes, a well known national builder with projects in seventeen states currently.  Engineers are now preparing updated designs to apply for Horry County approval, which will take a few months.  Also, we learned that the Amenity Center is now owned by "Arms-Wide-Open" Church.  Several improvements have been made, and more are planned.  
 
       Protection of lives and property are the priorities for now.  Please be very careful and use good common sense judgement in the immediate days ahead. 
 
Regards,  Bob Becher, I.G.Gen. Council

I updated the security reports. The August report is available to look at.


     Welcome to your new website. We had a website glitch over the past 2 weeks. I ended up not being able to add or change and then ultimately even re-build the entire website. The software I used was to blame. I got no help from the Software company at all.  So, I talked to Forgo Systems Inc., they are the company the hosts our website. Rob, the owner, listened to the problems I was having. He then said, let me fix it. Within 2 days he finished the website to what you now see. He's given me access and the tools to add and edit the website. (no more software needed!!!)

     It has a little change in apperance but, everything is in the site as it was before. Enjoy...


The owner of the old golf course property, Bob Williamsen, addressed 18 of the 24 HOA presidents and representitives on Thursday, 3/1/2018.

He spoke to us for 90 minutes and did not leave until all questions were answered. He talked about how he became involved with the property. The plans he foresees in the near future. And what will happen with Sunnehanna Drive. Plus a lot more.

Beth was taking notes and did a great job.

Double-click here to see Beth's report for the meeting.


There was a road crew working on Sunnehanna this past week. All they were able to do is to start cutting the pavement around the existing pot holes. Rain moved in and it’s been too wet to continue. And the next week is a holiday week, so I’m not sure how much will get finished before the first of the year. I spoke with the owner of the golf coarse property last week. He told me they have the money set aside for the repairs. He also mentioned that he did not know what company was going to do the work.

Best regards,

 

Bob Worrel
