ARE YOU PREPARED FOR A HURRICANE?

01 September 2017 - 07:40 PM

Currently, no hurricanes are headed to North Myrtle Beach but the hurricane season is young, and you should prepare for the possibility that one or more storms could visit us this year.
 
EVACUATION ZONES
 
When South Carolina’s Governor calls for an evacuation in the face of a pending hurricane, he does not base his call so much on the wind speed of the approaching storm but on the potential storm surge associated with it. Along the coast, storm surge is often the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane.
 
In order to ensure your safety and that of your loved ones, you should familiarize yourself with your evacuation zone, which is based on the level of storm surge associated with a given hurricane. You can do that by visiting: http://www.horrycoun...gencymanagement
 
It is important that you know the zone in which your home or business is located so that you can respond effectively when the Governor orders an evacuation.
 
EVACUATION ROUTES
 
The evacuation process for North Myrtle Beach requires all people located north of Briarcliffe Acres to evacuate via SC 9 north to I-95 and beyond.
 
You may find yourself elsewhere in the County when an evacuation is ordered, so be aware that lane reversals may be instituted automatically for two sections of Highway 501: U.S. Highway 501 from SC 544 to SC 378, and U.S. Highway 501 from SC 22 to the U.S. 501/SC 576 split in Marion. Once you enter a lane reversal pattern, you will not be able to get out.
 
Evacuation routes are based on the South Carolina Hurricane Evacuation Study for the
Northern Conglomerate released by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 2012.
 
DISASTER "KIT" CHECKLIST
 
Given the variety of weather-related scenarios that can quickly turn one’s world upside down, it is smart to create and maintain a Disaster "Kit."
 
FEMA suggests that you plan on being self-sufficient for at least two weeks. Place your items in sealable plastic tubs. Make sure everyone in the family knows where the tubs are located, and check them annually to make sure the contents are in good order.
 
Your items might include a battery operated radio, NOAA weather radio, flashlight and extra batteries, First Aid kit, one gallon of water per person per day, canned and other non-perishable foods, a manual can opener, personal hygiene items, towels, rain gear, sturdy shoes or work boots, blankets or sleeping bags, a complete change of clothing, tarp, aluminum foil, plastic bags, local map, plastic utensils and plates, napkins, toilet paper, tools (wrench, hammer, screwdriver, etc.), baby care items, and pet care and pet food items. Be sure to include copies of important documents, such as insurance papers, family records, an inventory of household goods, wills and deeds.
 
DO A DETAILED HOME INVENTORY FOR INSURANCE PURPOSES
 
Inventorying your home before a disaster strikes can save you time and money. One of the easiest ways to document your household inventory is to take digital photos, stamped with date and time, of everything you own in every room of your home. Don’t forget to record the small details, such as the serial numbers, makes and models of all appliances. Gather up any receipts you have for the big ticket items in your home, such as appliances, furniture, art, jewelry, and electronics, and store them in a safe place. It is wise to make a second copy of your inventory and store it outside your home with a trusted relative or in a safety deposit box. You stand to get the best and quickest return on your insurance policy when you can clearly document the contents of your home.
 
REENTRY PROCEDURES
 
You are not required to file proof of residency or property ownership with the City of North Myrtle Beach prior to an evacuation. However, when reentry to the city begins property owners and residents should be prepared to show officials located at their point of reentry a current driver’s license, a copy of a recent utility or property tax bill, a copy of a deed, a rental lease agreement or other formal identification that proves residency or property ownership within the city.
 
Prior to evacuation, owners of businesses should provide to their employees a letter on company letterhead identifying them by name as being essential to the recovery of the business. Use each employee’s name as it is shown on their driver’s license. This is particularly important for employees who do not reside within the city limits.
 
HOW TO ACCESS CITY INFORMATION PRIOR TO, DURING AND FOLLOWING AN EMERGENCY
 
The City maintains a variety of information outlets that you can access prior to, during and following a hurricane or other emergency-- www.nmb.us, Channel 15 on Time Warner Cable (Spectrum), Channel 9 on HTC Cable, Facebook.com/cityofnmb, and Twitter @cityofnmb.
 
You can also receive City news releases by email at the same time they are sent to news media. Provide your email address to pcdowling@nmb.us and you will be added to this news group. You may drop out at any time, and your email information will not be provided to others. (For this service, if you want to receive only hurricane or other emergency related emails, let us know that when you provide us with your email address, otherwise you will get news releases on all topics.)

RESULTS OF APRIL 3 NORTH MYRTLE BEACH CITY COUNCIL MEETING

04 April 2017 - 07:50 AM

The April 3 North Myrtle Beach City Council meeting was preceded by an executive session, during which City Council conducted its annual evaluation of the city manager; discussed a potential contract between Grand Strand Water & Sewer Authority, the City of North Myrtle Beach, and the City of Myrtle Beach; and discussed the potential purchase of property within the city.  

 

Mayor Marilyn Hatley presented to representatives of the North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club (photo) a Proclamation declaring the month of April to be National Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Month. One of the Club’s many objectives is to raise community awareness for the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

 

In her Proclamation, Mayor Hatley stated that in one year, 52 states reported 678,932 victims of child abuse or neglect, underscoring the fact that child abuse and neglect are serious problems affecting every segment of our community. Finding solutions requires input and action from everyone in the community.

The Mayor said that child abuse creates long-term psychological, emotional, and physical effects that can have lifelong consequences for victims of abuse. She encouraged members of the community to support protective initiatives that reduce or eliminate risk and promote the social, emotional, and developmental well-being of children.

Effective child abuse prevention activities succeed because of the meaningful connections and partnerships created between child welfare, education, health, community and faith-based organizations, businesses and law enforcement agencies.

Mayor Hatley emphasized that we must work together as a community to increase awareness about child abuse and contribute to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families in a safe, stable, nurturing environment.

City Council passed second (final) reading of an ordinance to revise the Town Centre on Main Planned Development District to replace a 3,400 square foot restaurant with additional residential townhomes.

City Council passed second reading of an ordinance to amend the Franchise Agreement for Randall Duke to allow the addition of a fourth Parasail Boat. His franchise fee increases from $45,000 annually to $60,000 annually.

City Council tabled until a Wednesday, April 5, 2:00 p.m. Workshop:

 

  • First reading of an ordinance to amend the Land Development Regulation Text to create a new, required 25-foot wide private street right of way cross section where private roads are allowed by Code.
  • First reading of an ordinance to amend the Land Development Regulation Text to waive the 600-foot block length maximum in situations where environmental, topographic or other limitations render compliance impractical.
  • First reading of an ordinance to amend the Land Development Regulations Text to address cross access concerning nonresidential development and safe distances from adjacent roadways
     
  • The Wednesday, April 5, 2:00 p.m. Workshop is open to the public.

MAYOR MARILYN HATLEY PARTICIPATES IN HEARING ON DEDICATED STATE FUNDING OF BEACH PRESER...

04 April 2017 - 07:41 AM

Acting in her role as Vice Chairperson of the South Carolina Beach Advocates organization, North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley traveled to Columbia, SC on March 31 to participate in a hearing on “Dedicated State Funding for Beach Preservation” sponsored by S.C. Senator George Campsen and S.C. Representative William Herbkersman. S.C. Representative Greg Duckworth was also present on the panel.

 

South Carolina Beach Advocates includes mayors and administrators from municipalities located along the South Carolina coast. It’s mission is to help educate decision makers and the public as to the economic, environmental, and civic benefits of South Carolina beaches.

 

During her remarks, Mayor Hatley said that the economic benefits resulting from beach preservation or renourishment do not accrue only to the beach communities. For example, the Grand Strand tourism industry contributes about $485 million each year to the state economy in state and local taxes. That revenue flows throughout all of South Carolina.

 

South Carolina beach counties contributed 72% of all the state Accommodations Tax revenues collected last year, with over $45 million of that revenue going directly into the state’s treasury each year. A “Robin Hood” provision in the state’s Accommodations Tax law redistributes a portion of all Accommodations Tax dollars collected to communities that do not have tourism.

 

Mayor Hatley also pointed out that, if one considers property ownership east of the Intracoastal Waterway along the South Carolina coast, it is again clear that our beaches are a statewide asset. Coastal property east of the Intracoastal Waterway is owned by someone in every county in South Carolina, and every state in the union.

 

In addition to Mayor Hatley, South Carolina Beach Advocates Executive Director Nicole Elko, Pawley’s Island Mayor Bill Otis, and Edisto Beach Mayor Jane Darby participated in providing testimony to the panel. The South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control and the South Carolina Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department also partnered with South Carolina Beach Advocates to encourage dedicated funding of beach preservation and renourishment.

 

“Our message is that South Carolina’s beaches are a statewide environmental treasure and a generator of revenue that require a strategic, long-term investment in regular maintenance,” Mayor Hatley said. “It just makes good sense. Revenue from our beaches positively impacts all of South Carolina and we should not have to start from scratch every time renourishment is determined by appropriate agencies to be necessary. We are not asking the state to do it all, only to establish dedicated funding for its share so that when we have to act to preserve our beaches, we can do so in a timely manner.”
