The week ahead for the Myrtle Beach area

December 1, 2013 

Loris City Council election

Loris will hold its municipal election from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, when voters will choose from among four candidates to fill three non-partisan seats on the City Council.

Candidates include incumbents Mike Suggs and Lewis Hardee and newcomers Casey Ward and Ricky Dew. Voters can cast their ballots at one of two sites: Loris Elementary School for East Loris and the Loris Public Safety Building for West Loris.

‘Don’t Strip the Neck’

The Citizens Coalition for Ocean Highway will meet Monday to hear analysis from a transportation expert on traffic flow and the proposed installation of a median on U.S. 17 from Baskerville Drive to Waverly Road.

Eric Tripi will speak at 3 p.m. Monday at Dezignworkz in Commerce Trade Center, 250 Commerce Drive in Pawleys Island.

The coalition argues that the S.C. Department of Transportation’s proposed plan for the median is costly and plans to present an alternative plan to the Georgetown County Council.
