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.

Dear Property Owners,
Two years ago, a major undertaking was initiated by LBTS to replace all of the bar codes that residents had and to install a state of the art security system. As part of establishing this new system, we wrote a set of rules and regulations to be followed by all residents when they got a new bar code or created a scanned pass.
As we look back, there are some things we missed, but we got more right than wrong. One thing that we could have done better is writing some guidelines on the proper use of bar codes and scanned passes. As an example, scanned passes should not continually be given to a local friend to use our facilities at the beach or River Club. Inviting them to join you for a day at the beach or pool is fine, but not to give them a 30 day pass, month after month, to use our facilities whenever they want. Likewise, we wrote clear rules on bar codes, on who qualified to get one and how many. To our dismay we have found some people who want to get around this rule and give or lend their bar code to a friend.
We are very fortunate to have Jennifer Wing, at Waccamaw Management as our Security Administrator. Following are some observations from Jennifer we would like you to read. IF you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jennifer (email@example.com or 843-314-0844) or me.
Only property owners, spouses, sons/in-law, daughters/in-law are authorized to have a barcode on their vehicle. Barcodes are NOT to be given to anyone except authorized users.
In order for Waccamaw Management to issue a new barcode, we must have a copy of the vehicle registration. If you have sold or traded a vehicle, please remember to get the old barcode off to be returned to Waccamaw Management, so a $25 replacement fee is not incurred.
Barcodes are VEHICLE SPECIFIC. They are NOT transferable to a new vehicle.
Barcodes MUST be permanently affixed to the outside rear passenger window. They may NOT be taped.
Barcodes for golf carts also MUST be permanently affixed on Plexiglas to the golf cart. A copy of the golf cart insurance must be provided in order to obtain a barcode.
Access is granted for your community, Litchfield by the Sea and River Club ONLY. I see many “denied access” for property owners trying to gain access to another community.
Barcode violations may incur a fine or loss of barcode privileges.
As I have said on numerous occasions, most recently at the LBTS Annual Meeting, “Security is everyone’s business and please do not give away something we all pay for”.

As another wonderful (albeit somewhat wet) Pawleys Island Summer comes to a close, let’s all be thankful for our many blessings and all that living at Litchfield by the Sea affords us.
Despite the rainiest July on record, rentals within LBTS were up and local businesses were booming…
On the Turtle front… Turtle nesting season is over. SCUTE reports that LBTS was home to two productive turtle nests with over 228 turtles hatched and returned to the sea… We’re waiting on the results of a third LBTS nest sometime in mid-September…
Security - Our TEM based security system, which has now been installed for over two years, continues to perform in the manner that we all expected.
Other than occasional system glitches, the system is performing well.
Summertime typically brings new problems with the influx of visitors, but this past summer was without any major problems, in large part due to the work of our security force.
Our security concerns relate to the proper use of Bar Codes, Scanned Passes and Bar Codes on Plexiglas. Our concerns in this area have been outlined in some recent e mail blasts on all of the above, other than bar codes. Bar codes will be addressed in the very near future.
In net, here are the problems:
Please do not give away a privilege that we all must pay for.
Looking forward to the Fall, many of us look forward to the cooler weather, less crowds and of course Football… It’s truly my favorite time of year in Pawleys Island!
The Board at LBTS has been busy finalizing the 2019 Budget. As we mentioned at the Annual Meeting in June, the funding of LBTS infrastructure tops the list of our priorities. Many of us take for granted the day to day operation and beauty of our slice of heaven called Litchfield by the Sea… Whether it be roads, landscaping, ponds, sidewalks, fountains, bulkheads, sewers, security, beach crossovers or our beach house and decks… Your Board and our Management Company, Waccamaw Management are working to keep LBTS among the top Beach Resort Communities…
All of this takes a financial commitment by us all… The Board is mindful of this and strives to find savings and efficiencies where we can… without diminishing the WOW Factor that we’ve all come to expect…
To fund our Operating Budget, Planned Capital Expenditures, and Reserves for 2019 there will be a 6% increase in monthly dues and the Board has called for a one-time Special Assessment in January equal to 10% of everyone’s Annual Dues ($122 for all Oceanside Communities and River Club and $42 for all other residents.) To avoid future Special Assessments, the Board will be exploring other ways to raise revenues to maintain our infrastructure and a healthy Reserves going forward.
Enjoy the rest of your Summer and Fall season at LBTS… Stay Safe…
For the Litchfield by the Sea Board of Directors
