Here's what's happening...


   
 

Orange Box  Mayor's Cup Golf Tournament...  We'll soon find out who the best golfers are on the Grand Strand in the Mayor's Cup Amateur Championships for men and women.  These are three-day, 54-hole tournaments where the best score wins.  Registration forms are available on-line or at Whispering Pines Golf Course.  The men's tournament is Friday-Sunday, September 12-14.  The women's tournament is Friday-Sunday, September 19-21.

 

Orange Box  Fourth Avenue North Deepwater Ocean Outfall...  Work begins after Labor Day on a new deepwater ocean outfall at Fourth Avenue North.  Completion is scheduled for November 2015 on this $10.4 million project that will carry rainwater more than 1,000 feet off shore.  A print-on-demand brochure with details about the project and timeline is available on-line.

 

Orange Box  Solid waste fee increases...  Beginning with August utility bills, residents will notice a $2.40 per month increase in solid waste charges.  The rate increase will provide another three-person collection crew and truck to keep pace with residential growth.  The new monthly rate of $22.90 covers weekly curbside collection of solid waste, recycling, yard waste and bulky junk.

 

Orange Box  Sports Center sponsorships...  With construction well underway on the Myrtle Beach Sports Center, sponsorship opportunities are now available.  For more information about sponsorships at the Sports Center and other city recreation facilities, see www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/advisory.pdf.  The Sports Center is on track for a spring 2015 opening. 

 

Orange Box  Beach regulation regarding tents...  The City of Myrtle Beach has approved a change in beach regulations that restricts the use of tents and other shading devices, except umbrellas, from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  Umbrellas up to seven-and-a-half feet in diameter are allowed, but no other shading devices are permitted during those summer months.  From the day after Labor Day until Memorial Day, tents up to 12-by-12 feet and less than nine feet tall may be used behind the umbrella line and 10 feet apart.  Visit our Tent Rules page for more information and a printable hand-out. 

 

Orange Box  Golf cart laws...  South Carolina regulates how golf carts may be driven on the public streets.  The complete list of golf cart requirements is available.  Among other things, the cart needs a permit from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as liability insurance.  As before, only licensed drivers, age 16 and older, can drive golf carts on public streets and only during daylight hours.
