Utility Billing Division
The Utility Billing Division is housed within the Financial Services Department at the City Services Building, 921 North Oak Street. The division is responsible for processing the following (all billed monthly on the same utility statement)....
- Water Services Fees
- Sewer Service Fees
- Sanitation Fees
- Stormwater Management Fees
Myrtle Beach city utility customers will notice a slight increase in their bills for water, sewer and stormwater service starting in August 2022. Water and sewer charges increase slightly (4.0 and 5.0 percent, respectively), largely due to wholesale cost hikes passed on by Grand Strand Water and Sewer Authority. The city’s stormwater fee also increases by $1.67 per month, per ERU (equivalent residential unit). For a typical family using 4,000 gallons of water per month, these fee increases – combined – add $4.25 per month to your utility bill. Solid waste fees did not change this year.

The City of Myrtle Beach supports the Grand Strand Humane Society, 3241 Mr. Joe White Avenue, in various ways. Animal lovers are making regular contributions to the Grand Strand Humane Society through their monthly City of Myrtle Beach utility bills. Called "R.A.I.N.," or Remembering Animals In Need, the program allows city utility customers to easily and regularly support the Humane Society's efforts.
Interested in becoming a contributor? Look for sign-up information in your next Myrtle Beach utility bill. Or, if you pay your utility bills online, download and submit our R.A.I.N. Contribution Form to the City Services Building, 921 North Oak Street. Every little bit helps. The city forwards ALL collections to the shelter each month, and the money helps feed and care for the shelter animals, including a spay and neuter program.
The Grand Strand Humane Society works closely with the city’s animal control officers, and accepts found or unwanted animals from inside city limits. It serves as the city’s animal shelter and receives use of the building and some funding. However, as a non-profit organization, the Humane Society works to raise additional funds necessary to care for cats, dogs, kittens and puppies until they are adopted. Making a little “R.A.I.N.” through your monthly utility bill will help meet the animals’ needs.
