Former Mayor William “Bill” Wert
We regret to announce the passing away of former Kiawah Island Mayor William “Bill” G. Wert. William Wert was elected in December 2002 and held four consecutive terms until 2010. Under his leadership, Town Council negotiated and passed the development agreement with Kiawah Island Golf Resort, renovated the Kiawah Island parkway adding the bike path to Freshfields, established an island recycling initiative and passed the largest non-federally funded beach restoration project on the east coast.
The Town flag will be flown at haft-staff until May 10. The Town would like to express our deepest sympathy to the Wert family and gratitude for his life and service to the community. His obituary can be viewed here.
