ISLE OF PALMS, SC (WCSC) - The Isle of Palms Ways and Means Committee has decided not to implement beach parking passes this summer.
The committee discussed plans for beach access parking implementation during a public meeting at City Hall, but they decided there was too much to get done before summertime.
Pay-to-park on Isle of Palms was approved by SCDOT in January. With this law, the city will sell permits for parking in SCDOT right-of-ways. Theses passes can be purchased online for daily, weekly or seasonal use with a license plate number.
IOP City Councilmember Patrick Harrington says while they'll be moving forward with plans to implement the permits, it'll be later in the season. The committee wants to establish the system as soon as they can, but with as little mistakes as possible.
They plan on sorting through possible vendors for license-reading software and performing a beta test on the new parking system in July.
