Local News

PAWLEYS ISLAND, SC (WCBD) – You may soon have to pay to park in the largest lot on Pawleys Island.

It is owned by Georgetown County, but the mayor of Pawleys Island said his town spends about $10,000 a year for police officers to patrol the lot during the summer.

He also says the town is responsible for repairs.

The town is now working to figure out how to pay for next fall’s beach renourishment project.

“One way that they could definitely make money off of that deal, help us pay for the thing and maintain the lot as well is if they paid to park in there,” said Mayor Jimmy Braswell.

Mayor Braswell said it’s too early to say how much parking would cost.

He and other town leaders plan to meet with the county administrator to discuss funding options for the lot.
