The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, June 23, 2017


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


1.   Next week’s meeting schedule and agendas are attached.  


2.   Looking ahead, city offices and facilities will be closed Tuesday, July 4, for Independence Day.  However, solid waste and recycling will be collected on the usual Monday-through-Thursday schedule that week.  Please make sure your neighbors are aware that our staff will pick up on the regular days and routes during the week of July 3. 


3.   Watch for two construction projects early this week that could affect traffic.  Overnight lane closures may be needed on US 17 at 62nd Avenue North as a contractor bores underneath the southbound lanes for a new sewer line.  The work will be completed at night to minimize interference.  Inside lanes may be closed temporarily.  Then, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the contractor will be back on 48th Avenue North between Kings Highway and Pine Lakes Drive to install the last concrete storm drain box.  This item was delayed due to manufacturing issues and wasn’t available for installation earlier.  Weather permitting, 48th Avenue North will be closed at 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 28.  The work should be completed by the end of the day on Wednesday, June 28.


4.   Applications are being accepted for the 34th session of the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s Citizens Police Academy.  Participants get a behind-the-scenes look at law enforcement.  Topics include crime scene investigation, K-9 units, emergency vehicle operations and simulated firearms training.  Class members also ride along with Myrtle Beach police officers.  The class meets at 7:00 p.m. every Monday for 10 weeks.  Applicants must be residents of Horry County and at least 21 years old.  A valid driver’s license is required, along with criminal history check and driver’s license background check.  Once accepted, class members must attend at least eight of the 10 sessions to graduate.  Applications are available on-line at or in person at the Ted C. Collins Law Enforcement Center on Oak Street or the Law Enforcement Center Annex on Mustang Street.  Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m., Monday, July 31.  Contact Master Sergeant Bryan Murphy at 843-918-1803 for more information.  The fall class begins Monday, September 11.


5.   With Independence Day approaching, remember that selling, possessing or using fireworks is illegal inside the City of Myrtle Beach.  Don’t risk receiving a ticket for illegal use or possession of fireworks.  Instead, enjoy one of the many professional fireworks shows available in and around the city during the Fourth of July week. 


6.   The recent 50th anniversary showing of Don’t Make Waves at the Base Recreation Center is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  The 1967 movie starred Tony Curtis, Claudia Cardinale and newcomer Sharon Tate.  It premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in Myrtle Beach as part of the 1967 Sun Fun Festival.  Photographer Jack Thompson was there to take photos and recounted his experience for audiences earlier this month.  .


7.   Did you know…  That the Myrtle Beach Fire Department recently won its seventh consecutive Richard S. Campbell Award for excellence in public fire safety education?  The award is presented by the South Carolina Fire Chiefs Association.  Our Fire Department has now won this statewide award 12 times.
