e-mail your opinion about whether this permit should be issued or not to www.scdhec.gov.  As for a public hearing.

When does the comments time close? The paper of record Georgetown Times and the local blog GAB news have not covered this story? Are they not going to do their job and inform the public?

I am thankful for a lot of things this year. A lot of things some people are not thankful for. So I will just say thank you here and move on.

We don't have the industry Myrtle Beach has. We have to re-open the steel mill and provide high paying jobs, jobs, jobs.

Politics and Current Events / Why is gas so much more expensive in Georgetown?

I had to go up to Myrtle Beach today and I was shocked at how much cheaper gas is there. As I left Georgetown on 17 gas was $3.25. Less than 4 miles away in Myrtle Beach is was $2.87. THAT'S 13% HIGHER PRICES IN 4 MILES! Don't tell me the quality of life is better in Georgetown so we charge more.

Great catch Mr. Rubillo. Does anyone find it curious that Scott Haper just did a article on the steel mill today? But he doesn't mention the request for comments on the air permit. He just says the mill has until Feb. to start back up. So whose payroll is Scott on?

The steel mill has applied to DHEC for a new air quality permit allowing it to resume operations.  The period of public comment on this application is now open.  The deadline for written comments is December 8.  Those wishing to oppose the issuance of this permit must do so in writing.  I have done so, objecting because (1) the city's zoning ordinance no longer allows "heavy industrial use" of the property since those operations stopped in April, 2020 for reasons other than a labor dispute (the only exception in the time limit preceding an automatic change in the zoning status of the land) and (2) insufficient technological improvements have been made and the "best available technology" as required by law would not be used, resulting in release of hazardous or toxic "electric arc dust" into the air.

Republicans, tell your newly elected representatives on city council of this development.  Democrats do the same.  It is time for them all to step forward.  No more hiding in the tall grass.

True in January 2019 and September 2020 and still true today, along with all of the postings in between about applying to EPA for Superfund assistance to clean up both the mill and the port.  The time has come.

Politics and Current Events / What happened at the union hall?
« Last post by forklift driver on November 09, 2021, 04:12:57 PM »
I am hearing a big fight broke out at the union hall? Are the loyal union members tired of the Shamderson lies? Have they figured out the steel mill is finished? Do they want new leadership?
