South Carolina law mandates that counties conduct a reassessment of all real properties every five years, and 2019 is a reassessment year for Horry County.  If your property value has increased by $1,000 or more since the last reassessment, you will receive a notice from the Horry County Assessor.  That notice will tell you three things:  the previous taxable value, the new taxable value and the estimated market value of your property.  

In 2019, the Myrtle Beach Police Department will present the first session of “Guardian Academy,” a new program for parents, guardians and various other caregivers to provide assistance and access to education and resources.  The program’s purpose is to promote, reinforce and strengthen relationships within families, benefiting the young people in our Myrtle Beach community.

Since 1999, Myrtle Beach has addressed stormwater management and maintenance with a monthly utility fee, charged to residential and commercial properties alike based on the amount of runoff that each site generates.  Much progress has been made in the nearly 20 years since the fee began, as evidenced by our lack of flooding and property damage inside the city from recent storms.
