With the Implementation of the new Litchfield by the Sea security program there is a revision to the past practice of allowing contractors/vendors and delivery services access to Reunion Hall. A list of frequent contractors/vendors is being created and maintained by Waccamaw Management. Contractors/vendors on this list will be assigned new codes that they will enter into the “Vendors Only Keypad” located on the fixed pass scanner tower at the Reunion Hall gate. All existing four digit codes for contractors/vendors will be deleted from the “Resident Directory” on May 1, 2016 and residents’ four digit codes will be deleted on June 1, 2016.
All residents please ensure you have a new barcode or a valid phone number in the “Resident Directory” to access the community after June 1, 2016.
Below is the current list of frequent contractors/vendors that come to multiple residences on a regular basis but without having a specific appointment/delivery time with the homeowner. Other contractors/vendors such as a plumber or pizza delivery, who are contacted by a resident for a scheduled visit/delivery, will not be assigned a key pad code. A resident can use either the “Resident Directory” phone admit feature (now accommodating long distance/cell phone numbers) or the new resident module computer website, email or voicemail system to have a pass issued to this type of contractor/vendor at the LBTS gate on the day of service/delivery.
Individual requests for additions to the list will be considered if the contractors/vendors meet the above criteria.
Please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.

LITCHFIELD BY THE SEAS - SECURITY UPDATE
March 19, 2019
Dear Property Owners,
Over the past 9 months, things have been relatively quiet in all of the LBTS communities. This may be due in part to the fact that it is a quiet time of the year.
The major issue that we have had is people entering unlocked cars and taking things like computers, cash and guns that have been left in the car.
In speaking with the local sheriff's office, they refer to this as “lock it or lose it”, and strongly advise residents and guests to always lock your car!!! We have had a couple incidents on the beach campus of theft from unlocked storage in the lower level of homes (on stilts), but luckily the thief was caught and the merchandise recovered in one of the two incidents. Again, please remember to lock a storage area that is accessed from the outside of your home.
I have some statistics from the Georgetown County Sheriff that show the number of calls down between 2017 and 2018 both in the county and in the area of Prince George to North Litchfield. A copy of this report is shown below. I have asked the Sheriff’s office for statistics like this for the beach and other communities and hope to get it in the future.
Finally, I am very happy (well sort of) to advise you that our Barcode Administrator is moving on. Jennifer Wing has been promoted to Community Specialist, replacing Vicki Cooper who has resigned from Waccamaw Management. In her new role, she will aid Lisa Hergenrother and others and will assume the management of her replacement, Christine Strembicki. (email@example.com)
So, while we lose Jennifer, she is not going too far and will still be around to help us.
Please join me in congratulating both Jennifer and Christine.

LBTS PRESIDENT LETTER
With Summer ending and Fall upon us … We’ve had another Great Season at Litchfield by the Sea. The Weather has been great and attendance this year has once again been outstanding…
These 2019 Completed Projects include:
New decking on the Beach House deck under the shade sail area. This new decking is a pilot program using composite deck boards instead of wooden boards. The Board is considering the use of this material on other areas of the Beach House deck.
Bulk head repairs were made along the area near the Fishing Dock and board walk adjacent to the Fishing Dock area.
Road repair and sealing – asphalt patching was done in both the River Club and Ocean Side campuses. Also on the Ocean Side campus, road sealing was done on Retreat Beach Circle and the roads in Compass Point and The Rookery.
Phase II of the debris clean-up of the River Club water way behind the homes on Club Circle
Clean up and plantings along the berm adjacent to Lakeside Villas
New polywood furniture – four sets of tables and chairs – for the Beach House deck
The following projects will be completed by years end:
Phase II of Storm Drain camera work and repairs both at the River Club and Ocean Side Campuses;
Erosion control efforts at the pond by the South Gate
Engineering consultant for future road work at River Club
Santee Cooper will also be returning to the Ocean Side campus after Labor Day to complete work to upgrade the underground electrical lines there.
As we discussed at the annual meeting… We’re continuing to study new ways to raise revenue to address our aging infrastructure at LBTS. We will likely have another 6% increase in annual dues and another 10% “Special Assessment” in 2020 until any alternatives can be considered at the 2020 Annual Meeting. Additionally… We failed to achieve the necessary quorum at the meeting for the River Club “Spectrum Cable TV Vote” for the necessary governing documents changes. We’re studying whether to try another vote for River Club next year…
Our friends at SCUTE report a record year for turtle nests in South Carolina. Litchfield by the Sea has six turtle nests along its beaches. Did you know that a female turtle has to be 35 years of age before she can nest? This summer, local representatives of SCUTE have manned a table – Turtle Talk - on the Beach House deck on Sundays to help educate local residents and visitors about turtles. It is extremely important that people keep lights low/off along the water including the use of flashlights. False crawls have been spotted on the LBTS beaches which indicate the mama was scared away.
Large holes on the beach continue to be a problem. PLEASE fill in any holes you dig. These holes can cause injury to both turtles and people!
Also, our web site litchfieldbythesea.com contains a wealth of information for LBTS homeowners and visitors. Please visit it regularly for new and enhanced information about our community…
Our remaining board meetings for 2019 are as follows:
Friday, August 16th
Friday, October 18th
These meetings are held at 2:00 pm at the Litchfield By The Sea Beach House.
Finally… We’d like your input. Let us know how you think we can make Litchfield by the Sea better for you… Direct your comments to Lisa Hergenrother @ Waccamaw Management via her email LisaH@waccamawmanagement.com.
The Litchfield by the Sea Board would like to wish you and yours a continued wonderful Summer and Great Fall Season… … Stay Safe…
