RESULTS – SPECIAL MEETING CALLED JULY 2 CITY COUNCIL
During a Special Called July 2 Meeting, the North Myrtle Beach City Council met in executive session for a detailed legal briefing and strategy discussion on Judge William Seals’ June 21, 2019 Order On Motions For Preliminary Injunction In Relation To Civil Action 2019-CP-26-01732.
This civil action concerns Horry County’s claim it has the right to continue collecting a 1.5% Hospitality Tax in cities across the county. Judge William Seals ruled the county could not collect the tax in the City of Myrtle Beach nor among other similar plaintiffs while the case continues to be tried.
The City of North Myrtle Beach continues to assert with full confidence that it and all other municipalities in Horry County are included and protected equally in Judge Seals’ Order.
The City of North Myrtle Beach is proactively, directly and equally involved in legal activity pertaining to this case.
In addition to the city attorney, several months ago the City retained the Nexsen Pruet law firm, which is actively providing the City with advice on this case.
