VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO ESTABLISH THE ST. PAUL'S PARISH ADVISORY COMMITTEE IN CHARLESTON COUNTY TO ACT AS A COMMUNITY FORUM FOR ADVICE AND DISCUSSION OF AND DIRECTION ON ISSUES AFFECTING THE PARISH, TO PROVIDE FOR THE MEMBERSHIP OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE, AND TO PROVIDE THAT THE ROLE OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE WILL BE TO ACT AS A SOUNDING BOARD FOR COMMUNITY ISSUES AND NOT TO EXERCISE ANY STATE OR LOCAL SOVEREIGNTY OR TO TAKE ANY TYPE OF EXECUTIVE ACTION.
Whereas, there exists a need in the St. Paul's Parish of Charleston County for an entity to be created to which members of the parish community can go for advice, counsel, and direction on issues of the day affecting the parish; and
Whereas, it is the intent of this resolution to create such an entity in the form of an advisory committee which may render advice and counsel on matters brought to the attention of the advisory committee, except that nothing in this resolution gives to the advisory committee the authority to exercise any state or local sovereignty or to take any executive action. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
(A) That the St. Paul's Parish Advisory Committee in Charleston County is hereby created to consist of nine members as follows:
(1) the member of the House of Representatives in whose election district the parish is primarily contained. This House member shall act as a co-chair of the advisory committee;
(2) the member of the Senate in whose election district the parish is primarily contained. This Senator shall act as a co-chair of the advisory committee;
(3) the mayors of the Hollywood, Ravenel, and Meggett municipalities or their designees; and
(4) four members of the advisory committee, one each from the Edisto Island, Parker's Ferry, Adam's Run, and Petersfield communities, respectively, to be appointed by the co-chairs of the advisory committee and to serve at their pleasure.
(B) That the advisory committee shall render advice, counsel, and direction to Parish Community members as and if requested on matters of interest to the parish. No state or local sovereignty, or executive action may be exercised by the advisory committee nor is it authorized to expend any public funds.
(C) That service on the advisory committee is not considered an office of honor or profit within the meaning of the State constitutional prohibition on dual-office holding.
