Call the Building/Zoning Department at 843-545-3116, regarding permits for new construction; for a change of tenant; if the business will be going in an existing building; and to see if a property is zoned correctly for its intended use.
You must complete an application available through the Building/Zoning office (129 Screven Street, Georgetown). With the application, you must submit the paid water and sewer receipts and/or a septic tank permit. Fees for mobile home permits are $100, plus a fire impact fee based on the value of the home. Once the application is approved by Zoning, you will be given the approved site permit to take to the Assessor’s Office and get the home registered with the county and obtain a sticker. Bring this back to the Building Department and pay the permit fees.
Applications are available in the Assessor’s Office (129 Screven Street) and must be completed by January 15 in the year following the purchase. The 4% assessment applies to the portion of property used as your residence. The 6% ratio applies to the remainder of the property.
