Ives steps down as Carolina Forest Civic Association chair

CAROLINA FOREST, SC (WMBF) - Bo Ives announced his resignation as president of the Carolina Forest Civic Association.

At a board meeting in July, Ives announced his resignation. Carolina Forest attorney Dennis DiSabato, a former president of the association, was elected president again on a temporary basis, according to a news release.

"The Carolina Forest Civic Association (CFCA) is saddened to announce that Bo Ives has resigned from the Board of Directors of the Carolina Forest Civic Association, citing a need to focus on other initiatives and projects that he is involved with," the release said.

Ives most recently was recently appointed to the RIDE III advisory committee, which will help identify road projects for the next penny sales tax.

An Avalon resident, Ives also chairs Keep Horry County Beautiful, serves on the Horry County Zoning Board of Appeals and was most recently appointed to the Horry County Solid Waste Authority technical review committee.

"I'm just challenged being able to satisfy all the requirements of the jobs," Ives said.

In prepared comments, DiSabato said Ives was an asset to the community who will be missed.

"I'm excited about this opportunity and feel that my past experience in this position will help the transition go smoothly. We have many new ideas for this organization and I am excited to help usher in a new era for the CFCA," DiSabato said in a statement.
