SURFSIDE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – The administrator for the town of Surfside Beach is set to retire next month.

According to a town employee, Dennis Pieper will retire on Sept. 7 following two years with Surfside Beach. He was out of the office when WMBF News contacted town hall to confirm the retirement.

Pieper previously served as town manager for Fort Mill before being chosen as Surfside Beach’s next administrator in May 2018, WMBF News’ partners at MyHorryNews previously reported.

He took the reins from Jim Duckett, who had served as the town’s interim administrator following the January 2018 ousting of then-town administrator Micki Fellner and then-deputy administrator Jon Harrah.

“We wish him the well in his retirement. We will be actively searching for a qualified replacement,” Mayor Bob Hellyer stated in his daily update on Facebook.
