2. Thursday’s temporary emergency orders were amended Friday evening by City Manager John Pedersen. You’ll find the full amended order on the city’s website. Here is a brief summary of the updates.
- Travelling medical staff.
- First responders and other government employees who are engaged in official business.
- Persons making deliveries of food, medical supplies, medicines, gasoline and other critical supplies.
- Myrtle Beach residents displaced by a fire, as placed by the American Red Cross or Myrtle Beach Fire Department.

- Persons having a valid reservation prior to the effective date of this Order who would otherwise be rendered homeless.

Finally, the Myrtle Beach Police Department is authorized to enforce these Executive Orders during a declared emergency. In most cases, the Police are directed to seek voluntary compliance, although failure to comply is a violation of city code and a misdemeanor, with a fine of up to $500 and/or 30 days in jail, upon conviction.

4. A new online E-Resources webpage is available on the city’s website. City buildings are closed to the public, but we are working to provide online content for all ages to enjoy.

5. Most activities for the next few weeks have been rescheduled, but we still maintain a comprehensive list on our Events webpage. This file of city-related festivals, concerts, programs and more is updated weekly.
6. Municipal Court is suspended through the month of April. At this time, we anticipate that court will resume on Monday, May 4. In the meanwhile, once-a-day bond hearings are being held at the Ted C. Collins Law Enforcement Center.
7. The Holmes B. Springs Park on Ocean Boulevard at 48th Avenue North is one of Myrtle Beach’s most beautiful spaces and the subject of our Photos of the Week. The park offers a quiet place to sit and contemplate nature or stroll under a majestic canopy of live oak trees. In the spring, azaleas and other flowers provide beautiful blooms for the eye to enjoy.
8. Did you know... That That Myrtle Beach could have been named Edgewater instead? Edgewater was the second-place suggestion in the 1900 contest to give “New Town” a new name. Conway was “old town,” and New Town became Myrtle Beach.
