[ARCHIVED] Results -- April 19 City Council Meeting

NMB City Council - April 5 2021 - FINAL - Reduced

RESULTS -- APRIL 19 CITY COUNCIL MEETING

The North Myrtle Beach City Council met Monday, April 19, at City Hall for a 6:30 pm executive session and a 7:00 pm meeting.

During the executive session, City Council discussed appointments to the Planning Commission and the Board of Zoning Appeals and discussed the potential sale of City property in exchange for a drainage easement. City Council took no action.

During the meeting, City Council adopted motions to approve special event permits for the June 22-August 14 Summer Junior Lifeguard Camps, the August 7 Take a Kid Surfing Day, the September 25 BFF Pink Ribbon Run, and the October 23-24 Fourth Annual Kite Festival.

City Council passed the second (final) reading of an ordinance to adjust the residential roll cart fee for short-term rentals.

Based on numerous neighborhood complaints about trash, there was a need to provide additional solid waste collection services for short-term rental (STR) properties. The proliferation of web-based rental platforms has resulted in many STR properties being located in residential neighborhoods.

The fiscal year 2021 (July 1, 2019-June 30, 2021) North Myrtle Beach solid waste service fees were not intended to provide additional service, and the City had to start the expanded service prior to the beginning of the next fiscal year budget, which begins July 1, 2021.

STR properties are now serviced four days a week on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday along the beachfront route and throughout the city as neighborhood STR properties are identified. The rate for this expanded service is $80 a month for one cart and $65 a month for each additional cart. This expanded service began Easter weekend and the City starts billing the new rate in May.

City Council passed the first reading of an ordinance to amend Chapter 23, Zoning, of the Code of Ordinances of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

An applicant proposes a text amendment to the Zoning Ordinance allowing duplex and “in common” developments in the R-2A zoning district. The amendment would also allow multiplexes in an in common development.

In common developments are developments where multiple dwelling units are located on a single lot owned in common. The standards for in common developments are listed and further clarified in separate sections of the Code of Ordinances of North Myrtle Beach (§ 23-117 and § 23-119.1). Over the years as individual districts were amended to allow certain uses, these other sections of the ordinance were not updated to coordinate with those changes. This is the case for the R2A district, which allows single-family and duplex uses on individual parcels, but not in common. This is also the case for multiplex buildings, allowed in certain districts but not in common.

City Council passed the first reading of an ordinance to amend Chapter 16, Section 16-49 of the Code of Ordinances of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The Code of Laws of South Carolina §23-31-215 authorizes the SC Law Enforcement Division (SLED) to issue a permit to carry a concealed weapon to persons who qualify for a concealed weapons permit pursuant to the requirements of the above-referenced section.

Section 16-49 of the Code of Ordinances for the City of North Myrtle Beach provides “It shall be unlawful for any person to carry, either concealed or not, any pistol, dirk, slingshot, metal buckler, razor, or other deadly weapon used for the infliction of injury to the person or property. Upon conviction thereof, besides such penalty, as may be imposed by the court, the defendant shall forfeit the weapon to the City.”

To make the City’s code section consistent with state code Section 23-31-215, the City’s code section would be amended as follows:

“Except as authorized by Section 23-31-215 of the Code of Laws of South Carolina, it shall be unlawful for any person to carry, either concealed or not, any pistol, dirk, slingshot, metal buckler, razor, or other deadly weapon used for the infliction of injury to the person or property. Upon conviction thereof, besides such penalty, as may be imposed by the court, the defendant shall forfeit the weapon to the City.”
