The Friday Fax Weekly Memo

   
 

Posted Friday, February 17, 2017


   

A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.

1.   Next week’s meeting schedule and agendas are attached.  Monday (February 20) is NOT a city holiday.  City offices will be open as usual and solid waste and recycling will be collected on the regular schedule.    

 

2.   On-line registration for resident parking decals continues.  To register, start at www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/decal.html, then follow the instructions.  Note that you must enter your name on the “vehicle information” page EXACTLY AS IT APPEARS on your 2016 property tax receipt, without punctuation.  Good for two years, the parking decals allow personal vehicles to park free at public parking meters and the Myrtle Beach Convention Center/Sports Center.  The decals are tied to where the car “lives,” meaning the vehicle must be registered inside the city limits and city property taxes must have been paid on it.  If on-line registration doesn’t work, you may register in person at the Parking Office on the first floor of the Pavilion Parking Garage, corner of Kings Highway and Ninth Avenue North.  Bring your vehicle registration and property tax receipt, along with your driver’s license.

 

3.   The winter craft show at the Base Recreation Center last Sunday drew a large crowd, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the Week.   Created by Maxine “Mickey” Davis, a snowbird who spends her winters in Myrtle Beach, the craft fair drew 85 vendors and more than 1,600 attendees.  Admission was a non-perishable food item, generating more than two tons of donations and $2,000 in contributions to the Low Country Food Bank.

 

4.   Did you know…  That the economic impact from sports tourism in the City of Myrtle Beach totaled $187.5 million in 2016?  The estimate is up $20 million over 2015 and $32 million over 2014.  The dollar amount represents direct spending by event attendees at facilities inside the city, including the Grand Park Athletic Complex, the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium and the Myrtle Beach Sports Center, among others.  Cheer and Dance competition participants were the biggest economic contributors at $65 million, followed by baseball tournament attendees at more than $43 million.  Other top revenue-generating sports for the community included fast-pitch softball ($21.5 million), basketball ($20.2 million), slow-pitch softball ($5.9 million), running events ($5.3 million), volleyball ($5.1 million) and soccer ($5.1 million).  Dollar-wise, July was the biggest month with $78.3 million in direct spending. 

Previous Did You Knows are available.
