The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, January 20, 2017


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.

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


2.   The City of Myrtle Beach, the Downtown Redevelopment Corporation and others will host a news conference at 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, January 24, at Nance Plaza.  The public is welcome for this exciting announcement. 


3.   Former NBA player Chris Herren brings his story of addiction and recovery to Myrtle Beach High School in two programs this week.  At 2:00 p.m., Thursday, January 26, Herren will speak to the student body about his careers highs and lows, including his use of heroin and other drugs and his escape from those addictions.  At 7:00 p.m. that same day, he will repeat that program for the public.  Admission is free.  Both sessions will be held at the Myrtle Beach High School Music and Arts Center.  This is part of the city’s on-going efforts to combat heroin use and other drug-related issues. 


4.   The Myrtle Beach Police Department has two more “active shooter” safety education classes this week.  Called “Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events,” the public is invited to learn about strategies, guidance and survival plans should an “active shooter” event unfold.  Course times and locations are:


·    6:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 25 – Base Recreation Center, 800 Gabreski Lane

·    6:00 p.m., Thursday, January 26 – Mary C. Canty Recreation Center, 971 Canal Street


5.   City Council has a few vacancies to fill on boards or commissions, including the Seniors Advisory Committee, the Board of Zoning Appeals, the Chapin Memorial Library Committee and the Human Rights Commission.  To be considered for one of these appointments, send a letter of interest and biography to the City Clerk, P. O. Box 2468, Myrtle Beach, SC  29578, or bring it to City Hall, 937 Broadway Street.  


6.   An on-line renewal process for parking decals, which are valid for two-year periods, will be ready by early February.  Stay tuned for more information, including the web address.  The parking decals allow personal vehicles to park free at public parking meters and the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  Until replacements are issued, the Convention Center honors the current 2015-16 decals.  Personal vehicles which “live” inside the city limits are eligible for the decals.  With the on-line system, owners will need the vehicle’s paid property tax receipt and registration.  The city charges $20 to replace a lost or damaged decal. 


7.   Several winter construction projects underway currently in the City of Myrtle Beach are the subject of our Photos of the Week.  Projects include the final year of the streetscape and underground utility conversion on Ocean Boulevard, between Second and Ninth Avenues North, as well as construction of Burroughs & Chapin Boulevard between Oak Street and Grissom Parkway. 


8.   Did you know…  That the Myrtle Beach Fire Department answered 14,403 calls for service during 2016, a new record?  Of those, 9,266 were for EMS and Rescue needs, the most common reason.  Of the remaining calls, 1,854 were false alarms, 1,370 were “good intent” calls, 275 were for actual fires, 212 were for hazardous conditions, 18 were for “explosions” and 22 were for severe weather.       


Previous Did You Knows are available.
