'Signal 30' Award
The City of Isle of Palms gives an award for special citizen service. This special award occurs on an extremely limited basis as a result of a recommendation. The decision to give a "Citizen Service" award is made by City Council and actual award is bestowed by the Mayor and City Council.
The award was developed in 2002. It is named the "Signal 30" award because "Signal 30" is an Isle of Palms Public Safety code for "citizen service." The "Signal 30" Award is presented by the Mayor at a meeting of City Council.
