Tomorrow a special Horry County tax referendum workshop meeting will be held at 2:00 p.m. Residents are invited to attend the workshop at the Horry County Courthouse located at 1301 Second Ave. Conway, S.C.
A non-binding tax referendum is being floated by Horry County Council for the November general ballot. Voters will be asked to decide if they want to raise taxes.
This referendum is supposedly in response to the wins by Horry County Chairman elect Johnny Gardner and District 104 Elect William Bailey this past June.
These candidates did not campaign on raising taxes, however. Each campaigned on adding impact fees to charge developers for the cost of new growth. These developers include among D.R. Horton, Beazer Homes, Bill Clark Homes, Lennar, Kolter Homes, Clayton Homes, and David Stradinger’s Dock Street Communities at Market Common.
Horry County resident Sharon Pollard says by attending this meeting, “We have no voice but we can show council we are united against this agenda.”
Johnny Gardner’s term begins January 2019. Residents are concerned that tomorrow’s Horry County tax referendum is simply an attempt at taking the agenda away from adding impact fees and/or examining the overall budget. A large portion of funds have been set aside for the building of I-73.
