The Friday Fax Weekly Memo

   
 

Posted Friday, August 19, 2016


   
 

A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.

 

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

 

2.   Milling and re-paving of a portion of Robert M. Grissom Parkway, from Mr. Joe White Avenue to 21st Avenue North, now is expected to begin Monday, August 22.  The work was postponed last week.  It will occur in the daytime and should take about a week to complete.  The milled surface will be rough until paving is accomplished.  Re-striping may occur during evening hours.  At least one lane in each direction will be open to traffic at all times.  

 

3.   Speaking of paving, on Monday, crews will transform the intersection of Country Club Drive and Louise Drive from a curve into a traditional T intersection.  The work is expected to take about a day, weather permitting.  No lanes will be closed, but drivers should expect paving and flagging operations Monday and perhaps Tuesday.

 

4.   Applications are being accepted now for the second session of MyBeach 101, the city’s general government citizens’ academy.  The eight-week program focuses on the city as a whole, including its organization, form of government and many services.  Classes will be held on Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. at various locations, beginning October 6.  Class size is limited to 25, and all participants must be residents of the City of Myrtle Beach.  The application is available at www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/mybeach101.pdf and must be received by 5:00 p.m., Friday, September 16.  Applications may be submitted via e-mail to neighborhoodservices@cityofmyrtlebeach.com.  For more information, call the Neighborhood Services Department at 843-918-1062. 

 

5.   Interest is high for this year’s Mayor’s Cup Amateur Golf Championship, which will be played at all three in-city golf courses!  The first day’s competition will occur at Whispering Pines Golf Course, followed by day two at Pine Lakes International Country Club and day three at Grande Dunes.  Male and female players, age 18 and up, will vie for the championship titles, November 18-20, in these 54-hole tournaments.  The application form is available at www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/mayorscup.pdf.  City residency is not required.  The entry fee is $249 and includes course fees, lunch each day, range balls, a practice round and a tee gift.  Entry applications for the 2016 Mayor’s Cup are available at all three courses and must be received by 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 4.  For more information, call 843-918-2305. 

 

6.   More than 400 people turned out Tuesday night to learn about the heroin addiction problem, and that’s is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  The Myrtle Beach Police Department sponsored the program at the Base Recreation Center.  Nearly 450 people attended, exceeding expectations.  Speakers include representatives from the Police and Fire Departments, along with the 15th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, the Coroner’s Office and the FBI.  A recovering heroin addict spoke, as did a mother whose child is wrestling with addiction. 

 

7.   Did you know…  That the Myrtle Beach Fire Department recently won its sixth consecutive Richard S. Campbell Award for excellence in public fire safety education?  The award is presented by the South Carolina Fire Chiefs Association.  Our Fire Department has now won this statewide award 11 times.   

Previous Did You Knows are available.
