CITIZENS ARE ASKED TO MAINTAIN A DECORUM SUITABLE FOR THE MEETING AND REFRAIN FROM USING PROFANE, ABUSIVE, OR OBSCENE LANGUAGE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY DOCUMENT FOR TOWN COUNCIL, PLEASE GIVE THE DOCUMENT TO THE TOWN CLERK AFTER YOU FINISH YOUR COMMENTS TO TOWN.

COUNCIL KRISTA, DO WE HAVE ANYONE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK TODAY? YES SIR.

FIRST PERSON SIGNED UP IS WENDELL SUTTON.

MR. SUTTON, PLEASE.

GOOD AFTERNOON.

UH, I'M WENDELL SUTTON.

I HAVE LIVED AT 2 39 JONESVILLE ROAD FOR 22 YEARS.

THE DEVELOPMENT, WHICH HAS OCCURRED DURING THE PAST 21 YEARS HAS BEEN IN KEEPING WITH THE COMMUNITY.

WE ARE A COMMUNITY THAT HAS SUPPORTED THE TOWN OF HILTON HEAD THROUGH THE PURCHASE OF PERSONAL PROPERTY ON JONESVILLE ROAD.

MY CAREER, MY NEIGHBORS INCLUDE VARIOUS PROFESSIONAL FIELDS SUCH AS MEDICINE, EDUCATION, INSURANCE, CONSTRUCTION, BUSINESS AND SERVICE PROFESSIONS SUCH AS FIREMEN AND DEPUTY SHERIFFS.

IN SHORT, WE ARE COMMITTED OUR PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL LIVES, OUR COMMUNITY, WHICH INCLUDES HILTON HEAD AND ESPECIALLY JONESVILLE ROAD COMMUNITY.

MANY OF US COULD HAVE CHOSEN TO LIVE IN GATED COMMUNITIES OR BLUFFTON.

WE DID NOT.

WE DEVALUE DIVERSITY.

WE UNITE UNDER A COMMON DESIRE TO HAVE A DENSITY LEVEL OF DEVELOPMENT THAT ALLOWS FOR THE PRIVACY OF OUR PERSONAL LAND.

WE WANT A COMMUNITY THAT HAS SAFE ROADS, ACCESS FOR EMERGENCY VEHICLES THAT ALLOWS US TO RIDE OUR BIKES, WALK OUR DOGS, AND IS NOT DANGEROUS.

WE DO NOT BELIEVE THE INCREASE IN THE DENSITY TO 243 HOMES THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF BAILEY'S COVE, TWIN OAKS AND TIDES ONE AND TWO WILL PERPETUATE THE VALUES OF OUR COMMUNITY.

THESE DEVELOPMENTS WILL UNDO WHAT WE ALL HAVE WORKED SO HARD TO BUILD, PROTECT, AND BE A PART OF AN ISLAND COMMUNITY.

WE DO NOT WANT TO LIVE IN AN OVERCROWDED, TRANSIENT COMMUNITY.

I ENCOURAGE THE TOWN TO ACQUIRE PROPERTIES AND TO SLOW AND PREVENT OVERDEVELOPMENT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. SUTTON.

DANIEL ANTHONY, PLEASE.

MR. ANTHONY.

GOOD AFTERNOON FOR THE RECORD.

MY NAME IS DANIEL ANTHONY FOR WEEKS NOW, YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE CONCERNS OF THE JONESVILLE RESIDENCE AND TOGETHER WE ARE MAKING HEADWAY IN ADDRESSING THOSE CONCERNS.

TODAY'S MEETING IS AT EVIDENCE OF THAT.

I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE OF THE PARAMETERS OF TODAY'S EXECUTIVE SESSION, BUT I AM SURE OF THE DESIRE OF THE JONESVILLE RESIDENCE.

WE ARE WORKING RELENTLESSLY TO MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD AND TO SAVE OUR RURAL RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY.

AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, JONESVILLE ROAD IS A PENINSULA WITH ONE WAY IN ONE WAY OUT.

MARSHALLS ON BOTH SIDES.

I HAVE HEARD COMMENTS FROM TOWN OFFICIALS AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL COMMENTS SUCH AS JONESVILLE HAS A FARM LANDFILL TO IT.

JONESVILLE IS A VERY UNIQUE AREA.

JONESVILLE IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL AND FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD.

JONES WILL'S CHARACTER NEEDS TO BE PRESERVED, AND MANY OF YOU HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED A DIFFERENT PERCEPTION OF JONESVILLE.

SINCE TAKING A TOUR WITH ME, ST.

JONESVILLE, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE RESIDENTS UNDERSTANDING OUR CONCERNS AND FEARS OF OVERDEVELOPMENT, WE THE RESIDENTS ARE STRIVING TO KEEP OUR NEIGHBORHOODS SAFE FOR OUR FAMILIES AND NEIGHBORS.

OUR CONCERN CONTINUES TO BE SAFETY AND PROPER PLANNING.

LAND ACQUISITION ON JONESVILLE WILL GO A LONG WAY IN PREVENTING THE THREAT OF OVERDEVELOPMENT.

I BELIEVE ALL OF YOU SHARE THIS DESIRE WITH US.

YOU HAVE TODAY THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESERVE THE CHARACTER OF JONESVILLE.

HOWEVER, AND UNFORTUNATELY, I CANNOT JOIN YOU IN AN EXECUTIVE SESSION.

TOWN RULES WON'T ALLOW IT.

SO I HUMBLY ASK THAT YOU SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THE RESIDENTS OF JONESVILLE

[00:05:02]

CONSIDER THE BEST FUTURE FOR HILTON HEAD.

THIS MAY BE A SMALL STEP IN THE OVERALL DIRECTION, BUT IT IS A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, A STEP THAT ALL OF YOU MUST HAVE THE COURAGE TO TAKE.

DO THE RIGHT THING, MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION FOR THE FUTURE OF JONESVILLE AND THE FUTURE OF HILTON HEAD.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

MR. ANTHONY.

SKIP HOLAND.

MR. HOLAND, PLEASE, BEFORE THE CLOCK STARTS, I'D LIKE TO REMIND YOU IF YOU LET OTHER PEOPLE SPEAK OVER THREE MINUTES, YOU GOTTA LET EVERYBODY SPEAK OVER THREE MINUTES OUT OF RESPECT, SKIP POLAND WINDMILL HARBOR.

MR. PERRY.

FIRST, I WILL NOT ADDRESS YOU AS A QUALIFIED MAYOR GIVEN YOU, ADMITTED YOU ARE JUST A PART-TIME FIGUREHEAD DUE TO YOUR FULL-TIME JOB AS A LOAN OFFICER.

AND BEING A PART-TIME MAYOR IS A DISSERVICE TO THE TAXPAYERS THAT YOU PURPORT TO REPRESENT AND YOU STATED YOU WILL NOT SUPPORT TRANSPARENCY.

IS THIS BECAUSE IT WOULD HARM YOUR FRIEND CHAMBER BILL MILES, WHO PAYS HIMSELF $500,000 SALARY FROM THE, FROM STEALING OUR TAX MONEY AND WORSE, WILL YOU AND COUNCIL MEMBERS CONTINUE LETTING DISHONEST TOWN EMPLOYEES OR ORLANDO LAWYERS GROUP OR COLTRANE KEEP HANDING OUT FRAUDULENT CHAMBER CONTRACTS, BUDGETS, AND AUDITS? AND WHY IS GRUBER STILL EMPLOYED? AFTER PLEA PLEADING GUILTY TO THREE ETHICS VIOLATIONS, THIS COUNCIL KEEPS UNANIMOUSLY VOTING TO FUND THE CHAMBER WITH MILLIONS OF TAX DOLLARS WITHOUT THE PROPER OVERSIGHT AND APPROPRIATE ACCOUNTING.

IN FACT, BILL MILES SAID HE, HOW HE SPENDS HIS MONEY IS HIS PRIVATE IS PRIVATELY, IS IS HIS SECRET SAUCE AND NONE OF COUNCIL ON TAXPAYERS BUSINESS.

LET'S SEE HOW EACH OF YOU CAST YOUR VOTE THIS YEAR.

BE ASSURED YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND LIABLE EVERY ONE OF YOU.

YOU'RE IN VIOLATION OF MY A TAX 40 TO SEE HOW AND WHERE BILL MILES USES MILLIONS OF TAX MONIES, INCLUDING THE CANADA, WHICH IS AN ABUSE TO OUR COUNTRY AND OUR COMMUNITY.

YOU'RE IN VIOLATION OF SOUTH CAROLINA PROCUREMENT LAW TO CHOOSE A NEW A TAX FUNDED DMO.

SINCE THIS CHAMBER HAS ACTED ILLEGALLY FOR 35 YEARS, ORLANDO GRUBER AND ERIC GREENWAY ILLEGALLY WROTE TAX CHECKS TO BUY CHAMBER ME MEMBERSHIPS FOR THEMSELVES AND COUNCIL MEMBERS.

AND ORLANDO ILLEGALLY USED BLUFFTON TOWN EMPLOYEES FOR A MEMBERSHIP DRIVE TO PROFIT BILL MILES POCKETS, THEREFORE COUNCIL OR CHAMBER MEMBERS.

AND THEY MUST DEMAND BILL MILES COMPLIED TO SOUTH CAROLINA, UH, NONPROFIT ACT WITH FULL ACCESS TO CHAMBER RECORDS.

ALSO, ALL TAXPAYERS ARE NOW CHAMBER MEMBERS, INCLUDING ME SINCE TAX FUNDS WERE USED, CORRECT.

ATTORNEYS CO-TRAIN AND FINGER DRAFTED A FRAUDULENT DMO CONTRACT THAT ALSO BENEFITED MILES TOWN GENERATES FRAUDULENT BUDGETS, AUDITS AND HIDES REAL NUMBERS.

THEREFORE, LAST FIVE YEARS MUST BE FR AUDITED CHAMBER.

DMO IS VIOLATING IRS NONPROFIT TAX CODES.

THEY'RE COMMITTING TAX EVASION UNFAIRLY COMPETING WITH LOCAL TAX, PAYING MEDIA, SELLING LISTED ADVERTISING, INCLUDING THE PACKET.

OUR A TAX COMMITTEE HAS BEEN CORRUPTED SEATING CHAMBERS CHAMBER SUPPORTERS TO KEEP RECOMMENDING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO THE CHAMBER.

AND ANOTHER ILLEGAL BUSINESS ENTITY CALLED THE LOW COUNTRY GOLF OWNERS ASSOCIATION, WHOSE PARTNERS INCLUDE BILL MILES PASSED A TAX CHAIRMAN, BRAD, ME, AND CARRIE CORBETT TO PROPERTY LEGALLY WITH HIS MAGAZINE LOCALLY.

PERRY, THE CHAMBER IS ALL ILLEGALLY TAX FUNDED.

NO NON NONPROFITS MUST BE DEFUNDED OR MORE, MORE LAWSUITS MUST BE FILED.

IT'S ALL ILLEGAL.

YOU GOTTA LOOK AT THAT.

YOU CAN'T KEEP DOING IT.

YOU'RE YOU.

UH, AND THIS WILL BE JUST LIKE THE LAWSUIT WE FILED AGAINST YOU FOR $2 MILLION TO SEA PINES FOR THE DRUDGING OF HARVARD TOWN.

IT WAS ILLEGAL.

LASTLY, I WANT THE WELCOME TO HILTON HEAD SON REMOVED IN FRONT OF WINDMILL HARBOR COMING ONTO THE ISLAND.

THIS IS A LIE AND IT'S NOT.

AND THIS IS NOT HILTON HEAD.

THANK YOU, MR. HILTON, JENKINS ISLAND AND WHO APPROVED THIS AND WHO AND WHO, WHO APPROVED THIS AND WHO PAID.
