[ARCHIVED] Results -- May 21 Special Called City Council Meeting

NMB City Council - April 5 2021 - FINAL - Reduced

RESULTS -- SPECIAL CALLED MAY 21 CITY COUNCIL MEETING AGENDA

The North Myrtle Beach City Council held a Special Called Meeting on May 21 at 1:30 pm at City Hall.

City Council passed the second (final) reading of an ordinance pertaining to transient parking in residential neighborhoods. The ordinance addresses parking concerns related to short-term rentals in residential neighborhoods.

City Council adopted a Resolution ratifying and retroactively consenting to certain Horry County ordinances.

The City of North Myrtle Beach (City) is a member of a proposed class of plaintiffs in the civil action, “City of Myrtle Beach, For Itself and a Class of Similarly Situated Plaintiffs, vs. Horry County,” brought in the Court of Common Pleas for Horry County in Civil Action Number 2019-CP26-01732 (“Class Action”).

The City is also a signatory to the Class Action Settlement Agreement dated February 12, 2021, resolving the Class Action, approved by order of the Court of Common Pleas for Horry County dated April 20, 2021 (Settlement Agreement).

The effectiveness of the Settlement Agreement was conditioned upon, among other things, the ratification and retroactive consent of the City to Horry County Ordinance Numbers 105-96, 11-04, 93-16, 32-17, 7-97, 76-97, 80-01, 111-01, and 50-04 (“County Ordinances”).

The City willingly gives its ratification and retroactive consent to the County Ordinances, providing the City and County have executed the same, and the required written consents of other municipalities to the same are given.

Via the Resolution, the City ratifies and gives its retroactive consent to the County Ordinances as required by Section 6.2.1 of the Settlement Agreement. 2. The Resolution is made pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. §5-7-260.

City Council passed the second reading of a proposed ordinance reinstating a 1% Hospitality Fee and a 1-1/2% Accommodations Fee.

The ordinance amends Chapter 7, Article VIII, of the Code of Ordinances of the City of North Myrtle Beach to reinstate provisions for a 1% Hospitality Fee and a 1½% Accommodations Fee from Sections 7-120 to 7-155. It also repeals other provisions of that Article and Chapter 7, Article XII, which pertain solely to the imposition of Hospitality and Accommodations Taxes. These actions are required to comply with a court order approving the settlement, and authorizing related procedures, in pending litigation, Case # 2019-CP-26-01732.
