The City of North Myrtle Beach held a special called city meeting this afternoon.
Ordinances similar to the city of Myrtle Beach were passed.
Those ordinances allow the city to no longer pay Horry County a 1.5% hospitality tax.
The tax will still be collected under a new ordinance and the proceeds will stay and be used inside the city limits of North Myrtle Beach.
A second reading is required. Should that reading pass, and second reading in Myrtle Beach pass as well, it is virtually impossible for Horry County to honor the 20 year agreement the county signed last December with the SCDOT.
