Welcome to Myrtle Beach!


Here's what's happening...


Orange Box  Disaster Recovery Workshop...  Register now for the Coastal Business Disaster Recovery Workshop, 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Friday, January 26, at the Myrtle Beach Train Depot.  Learn how to cope with business interruptions due to disasters or large-scale emergencies.  The SC Emergency Management Division and local governments are sponsoring this workshop.  Our economy will rebound more quickly if local businesses are prepared in advance to handle the disaster effectively.  To sign up, call 843-918-1069. 


Orange Box  Police salary proposal calls for market rate adjustment...  The Myrtle Beach City Council is considering a market rate adjustment for certified police, detention and telecommunication officers that would help with retention and recruitment.  To compete for new police officers and retain existing ones, the compensation package must be attractive, especially in the mid-career years.  It calls for a 10 percent increase in January 2018, and step increases thereafter to maintain competitiveness.  The City Council presentation is available online for your review.  


Orange Box  MyBeach 101 applications...  Myrtle Beach's citizens' academy, MyBeach 101, is accepting applications for its third session.  This free, eight-week program is similar to the Citizens Police Academy, but focuses on general government services.  MyBeach 101 meets Thursday evenings beginning February 1, 2018.  Class members must complete at least six of eight classes to graduate.  The MyBeach 101 Application is available on line, with the class limited to 25 participants.  Applicants must be city residents.  The application deadline is Thursday, January 18, 2018.

Orange Box  Controlling coyotes in urban areas...  Myrtle Beach is an urban area, but we still have wildlife all around us.  Residents have reported coyotes in or near their neighborhoods.  To address the issue of nuisance wildlife, the city has created a publication called, “Controlling Coyotes in Urban Areas.”  It’s available in two print-on-demand formats.  The first is a standard tri-fold brochure, while the other is a two-page flyer(Note:  When printing, be sure to set “page scaling” to “none.”  Both documents are designed to be printed at full size.) 


Orange Box  Golf cart laws...  South Carolina regulates how golf carts may be driven on the public streets.  The complete list of golf cart requirements is available.  Among other things, the cart needs a permit from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as liability insurance.  Only licensed drivers, age 16 and older, can drive golf carts on public streets and only during daylight hours. 


Orange Box  City seeks stormwater grants...  The City of Myrtle Beach is submitting two stormwater improvement disaster recovery grant applications in response to Hurricanes Joaquin/Matthew.  The grants would require a 25-percent local match.  Visit for application information.
