The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, August 11, 2017


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


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


2.   The public is invited to a hearing on the proposed Assessment of Fair Housing Plan for this region, to be held at 4:00 p.m., Thursday, August 17, at the Myrtle Beach Housing Authority, 605 10th Avenue North (next to City Hall).  Agencies and jurisdictions that receive funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development are required to hold public hearings on the regional plan.  Copies of the plan are available for review at the Housing Authority.  For more information, contact Courtney Kain, Horry County community development director, at 843-915-7031.


3.   Longtime K-9 Officer Alli retired this week, after more than six years on the job, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the Week.  The Myrtle Beach Police Department celebrated Alli’s retirement with a party at the Train Depot.  During her career, Alli was been called upon 672 times to assist in locating illegal drugs or weapons, fleeing suspects or missing person and other items of evidence.  She assisted with the recovery of more than 16 pounds of marijuana, 25 ounces of cocaine and 10 ounces of heroin.  In retirement, Alli will become the pet of her human partner, Corporal Chris Smith and his family.  See photos at


4.   Did you know…  That Myrtle Beach set a record for the number of building permits issued last fiscal year?  The city granted 6,521 building permits of all kinds in 2016-17 for a total construction value of $411,450,395.  That’s the third highest annual construction value ever in the City of Myrtle Beach.  The record is $489.7 million, set in 2005-06, followed by $427.3 million in 2006-07, both before the Great Recession.  Last year’s permit totals included 445 new single family homes (up from 385 the year before), four new multi-family residential buildings and 34 new commercial buildings.
