-- ORDINANCE-- SECOND (FINAL) READING: An ordinance to lease office space and to authorize the use of a portion of the pool and other areas of the North Myrtle Beach Aquatic & Fitness Center to McLeod Seacoast Hospital.
-- ORDINANCE-- FIRST READING: An amendment to Ordinance 19-22 changing the effective date for implementation of the ban on single-use carryout bags by retail establishments.
In an effort to protect local wildlife, Chapter 12, Article VIII, a ban on the sale, use, or distribution of single-use carryout bags by retail establishments within the city, was adopted on April 15, 2019, with an effective date of January 1, 2021. Due to the catastrophic effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the City Council on May 4, 2020, postponed the effective date until January 1, 2022. City Council has recently received sufficient input from local businesses in North Myrtle Beach that delaying the start of this ordinance would help their economic recovery from losses sustained during, and incidental to, the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the lack of paper supplies and supply disruption, the City Council seeks to again assist the local businesses and grant economic relief wherever and whenever practical. The proposed ordinance amends the effective date of Ordinance 19-22 until January 1, 2023.
