My guess is that folks will continue to misbehave on Folly. It takes at least a generation to change the Folly Beach culture and you can't fix stupid ever.
So here is the solution: Get the town to buy a block of beachfront property, build a rectangular tall secure fence down to and around the average low tide line, and declare this area a lawless zone. No cops, no civic involvement, pay $10 a day and enter at your own risk. Drunks, nudes, prostitution, noise, drugs, cursing and violence is just fine. One season of this and the place will be abandoned. The town can redevelp the area, sell at a profit, the property owners get the town back and problem solved.
