Horry County to take final vote on flow control Tuesday
Horry County will take a third and final vote Tuesday on whether to repeal the construction and demolition debris portion of flow control.
Flow control, adopted by the county in 2009, forces those hauling construction and demolition debris to keep that debris in Horry County’s landfill on S.C. 90. By repealing the portion, that will allow businesses to haul to nearby landfills outside of Horry County that have cheaper rates per ton.
The vote is slated for 6 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers of the Government and Justice Center, 1301 Second Ave., Conway.
