Note:  City laws are known as ordinances.  Before a city ordinance can be enacted, it must be introduced (1st Reading) and then approved (2nd Reading).  Resolutions are actions through which City Council reinforces or makes policy not rising to the level of law.  Motions are related to direction from City Council to city staff to take certain actions. 

2nd Reading Ordinance 2022-038 confirming the assessment roll related to the Myrtle Beach Downtown Improvement District; and, other matters relating thereto. 

The purpose of the Municipal Improvement District (MID) is provision for, and funding of, various public improvements for the benefit of the current and future users of the real property located within the district set forth in Resolution 2022-017 (adopted on April 12, 2022).

The proposed public improvements consist of the following:

  • Ambassador Program
  • Events and Marketing
  • Special Projects
  • Planning and Research

This ordinance officially confirms the assessment roll, which identifies the parcels subject to the assessment within the Municipal Improvement District.  Property Owner Notices and the Advertised Notice of Completion provided an opportunity for written objections on or before August 10, 2022.  A public session and public hearing occurred at 9:00 a.m. today, Thursday, August 11.  Based upon City Council’s decision in response to any written objections and input received, City Council will determine any corrections to the assessment roll for second reading and final confirmation.
