North Myrtle Beach Public Information Officer, Pat Dowling, informed MyrtleBeachSC News that furloughs are necessary for some town employees due to the coronavirus.
Wrote Dowling, ““Furlough” is an unpaid leave of absence, and implies this is a temporary arrangement. Hopefully, all furloughed employees will one day be able to return to their jobs with the City.“
At this point in time, some City departments have had to furlough more employees than others. That is simply because there is no current demand for some of the services offered by some departments.
For example, the Aquatic & Fitness Center is closed, all spring sports tourism events are canceled, umbrella and beach chair rentals and Italian Ice sales are postponed, etcetera.
Very little revenue is being generated in the community and that means very little revenue coming to the City.
