Liberty Steel announces growth plan for Georgetown Mill with roughly 40 new jobs

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WPDE) — Using the backdrop of a customer and worker appreciation day, Liberty Steel USA officials announced plans to expand operations at the Liberty Georgetown Steel Mill.The announcements come roughly a year after the city leadership issued an order for the mill to close claiming executives let the mill r...

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WPDE) — Using the backdrop of a customer and worker appreciation day, Liberty Steel USA officials announced plans to expand operations at the Liberty Georgetown Steel Mill.

The announcements come roughly a year after the city leadership issued an order for the mill to close claiming executives let the mill remain shuttered for too long during the COVID-19 pandemic. The mill and city manager had worked out an agreement that the mill could remain in a shuttered, but maintenance-focused capacity until February 2022.

When that deadline was reached and mill workers returned as did production, the outgoing city zoning administrator declared that the mill violated a local ordinance and should lose its special zoning status grandfathering it into the area where the city has made an effort to reduce heavy industrial activity in favor of more tourist-focused business.

In the summer, the Georgetown Board of Zoning Appeals decided the mill was justified to remain open citing that agreement between executives and the city administrator.

Friday, the city's mayor among other public officials joined mill and union leadership.

"We have a very good relationship with the executives of the steel mill at this point," said Mayor Carol Jayroe. "Currently Liberty Steel and the city are partnering to beautify the perimeter along South Fraser Street. We are looking forward to working with Liberty on this project."

Mill executives say the landscaping and the efforts to expand are part of a broader plan to show the mill is trying to be a good steward of the community given its roughly 50-year history being a symbol of Georgetown.

"We want our colleagues to have pride in the place they work when they come in," said Executive VP of US Operations Axel Ampolini. "We want this steel mill to be an asset to this community."

Ampolini says the business has slowed some given the economic headwinds consumers face with inflated prices on construction and automotive products. Those are the main industries for the mill's wire rod supply sources. He however says the mill is turning a profit even with its smaller output compared to larger operations like the Peoria, Illinois sister plant. Friday, he announced that they plan to increase production from 120,000 tons of wire rods to 300,000 tons.

"We're going to be expanding from one shift to two shifts so that we can work around the clock," Ampolini said. "We will reach triple digits with this expansion that we are announcing today we will be right around 100 folks."

It's welcomed news for union workers and union leaders who have told ABC 15 News that the contract between the united steelworkers and Liberty Steel calls for roughly 125 full-time workers at the Georgetown Mill by 2025. This expansion and the addition of downstream integration, meaning Liberty will buy its own product from the mill for separate operations, will bring the mill's labor force closer to that threshold.

"Up to 40 additional employees will be coming up here to our plant site and I think that's going to be a win-win situation for everybody involved," said Georgetown branch president James Sanderson with the United Steelworkers.

A spokesperson for Liberty Steel USA says the work to hire new plant workers and staff for the integration will begin in the coming months with a goal to have the expansion efforts complete by the end of the year.

"This is a great day in Georgetown," Sanderson said. "There's no doubt in my mind that I think everybody needs to come together, work together, and start looking out for the best interests of Georgetown and I do believe that we are on the right path now."

Georgetown leaders demand answers, transparency on 17% utility bill increase

GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - After a 17% utility rate adjustment increase went into effect over the summer, a local leader and former Georgetown council member say the reasons behind the increase are false.

Former Georgetown City Councilmember Sheldon Butts and NAACP South Carolina State Conference Third Vice President Marvin Neil say the decision made by the current administration has lowered the quality of life for residents in the area.

“The common man, woman, elderly person, veteran, that’s on fixed disability, cannot afford that,” Butts says. “It’s just not feasible for individuals who are hardworking or those who are disenfranchised and low income.”

The 17% utility fee increase in the city includes city water, sewer, sanitation, stormwater and electric service fees, except stormwater, which is increased by 9.97%.

The City of Georgetown’s 2024 budget is $44.5 million, increasing $2.5 million from 2023.

“It makes more sense to increase taxes, property tax, but you can’t balance the budget by increasing electrical utilities. That just doesn’t work,” Neil says.

In the city of around 9,000 people, the budget over the last two fiscal years has increased by over $7 million.

“The city of Georgetown has a spending problem, that’s the problem,” Butts says. “It’s not a utility rate problem, it’s not solely an infrastructure problem. They have a spending problem.”

Georgetown’s Mayor Carol Jayroe said back in August that the city’s utility rates had not been raised since 2010.

But when looking back at past budgets, the city did increase utility rates in 2017 and 2019.

“That’s the bigger problem, every year increasing the budget,” Butts says. “At the end of the day, what services have been enlightened? What are the citizens of the city of Georgetown receiving from being increased?”

“There’s nothing to show for it,” Butts says.

Butts and Jayroe served together on the city council for four years prior to Jayroe taking office in 2022. He claims in the time they worked together, Jayroe never discussed or brought up any concerns about the budget or utility rates.

“I think over a four-year period, she would have made it known to somebody that she had a concern that would be critical to the increase that she’s imposed upon people this last fiscal year,” Butts says.

But now that the budget has already been approved, both Butts and Neil say the people of Georgetown deserve answers.

“It tells a story to the people. If they want change, they have to vote for that change,” Neil says.

“This is a people problem; this is a working-class people problem,” Butts says. “People who are trying to make a livable wage in the city of Georgetown, those people are the ones that are having the problem.”

The utility increases do not stop here. The city forecasts a 4% water and sewer utility rate increase through 2028, 7% electricity in 2025 and 4% electricity in 2026 until 2028.

Jayroe’s team has not yet responded to a request for comment.

City to turn former Liberty Steel office building into new Georgetown City Hall

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WPDE) — Being South Carolina's third oldest city, Georgetown has several iconic sites in its more than 290 years of history. For the past half a dozen years, it's been lacking a formal home for those who run the city.

Thursday, that changed with the official unveiling and handing over the keys to a new city hall site along Hazard Street just a block from the Liberty Steel Mill.

It will be a new chapter for the city, but it will be written on top of a storied past for the location. The building that will now house city offices for decades stood as the administrative building for the Georgetown Mill now called Liberty USA.

What has been Steelworkers Square will now be City Hall nestled next to the Mike Johnson ballpark, the United Steelworkers Union Hall, and the Georgetown County operations center as well as Howard Auditorium.

"What a pleasure it is to stand before you here today and know that we the City of Georgetown have the privilege of owning one of the most beautiful pieces of property in our beloved city," said city Mayor Carol Jayroe.

The property has been home to mill workers and mill officials for decades. It was not up for sale, but mill officials say the city persuaded them to convey it since it was sparsely used since the pandemic.

"We will miss it, but Liberty is proud to have a hand in bringing in the next chapter of Georgetown's storied history," said LIBERTY Steel plant manager Tom Houlihan.

It's a deal you would not have seen struck between the city and the mill a little over a year ago. In early 2021, the city aimed to see the mill close for good with the former zoning administrator declaring it had violated city law by remaining shuttered for too long during the COVID-19 pandemic. That decision was later overturned by an appeals board and went in favor of the mill's reopening and remaining in operation.

Union leaders for mill workers call the transaction between the city and LIBERTY a win-win.

"We have formed a great working relationship and we see now that the city wants to come in and be a part of that relationship," local union president James Sanderson said.

The city purchased the land as well as a neighboring parking lot for a little more than $1.5 million. Mayor Jayroe says the city has access to $3.5 million in reserve funds from insurance payments when the city had to destroy the old city hall due to structural concerns from sinkholes.

The city has an active request for builders to offer quotes for renovating the building. It's expected to house a majority of city business offices.

"We will, the city of Georgetown promise to be good stewards of this property that has meant so much to our city and steelworkers for decades. That is our pledge," Jayroe said.

The mayor hopes to see another ribbon-cutting ceremony take place roughly a year from now to welcome a fully operation City Hall for the residents of Georgetown.

GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - The city of Georgetown is recovering after a coastal storm brought flooding to the area on Sunday.

More than 12 inches of rain fell in Georgetown as the coastal storm made its way up the coast.

Georgetown Mayor Carol Jayroe says they received double the amount of rainfall they were anticipating.

She says about 60 people were pulled from cars Sunday by first responders, and that the City’s downtown fire station, holding their emergency operations center, was flooded.

“They were in the conference room and low and behold, water came under their feet unbeknownst to them, it came up that quickly,” Jayroe says.

She says Front Street was one of several areas hit the hardest.

Employees at Monkee’s of Georgetown, a clothing store on Front Street, worked all day Sunday to clean up flooding damage in their store.

“We had water rushing in through the front and through the back,” employee Streater Mitchum, says, “Every employee was here today helping clean up.”

She says thanks to their hard work, they’ll be able to reopen Tuesday to customers.

“It’s the holiday season so we had lots of people knocking on the door ready to shop today,” she says, “We’re a small town, and we appreciate all the transient business that comes through.”

Resident Len Kelpsh described Sunday’s flooding as the “absolute worst he’d ever seen.”

“There were cars floating in front of me,” Kelpsh says. “It’s just such an odd experience to have 13 inches of rain and I hope we don’t have it again but, what can we do?”

Jayroe says the city’s assessment teams have been out all day Monday gauging the damage. She says that business-wise, most of the cleanup efforts are finished.

She says anyone displaced from their home due to the storm should call Black River United Way at 843-546-6317.

She encourages any business that experienced extensive flooding to call the Georgetown County Economic Development Department with the South Carolina Department of Commerce.
