If there’s money left over from RIDE, why must taxes go up?

I still have trouble understanding the new road tax. If RIDE II road tax has enough money in it to fund all of the projects and the leftover funds are put in county coffers and spent on safety items, that's well and good. Now what I don't understand is why the sales tax is going up another penny? If RIDE II is done, why doesn't RIDE III take its place and the tax rate stay the same?

School board pay raise simply ridiculous

I can't believe the audacity of the Horry County school board, to think that they deserve a 66 percent raise. They take the highest bid to build new schools at a cost of more than 50 percent more than had been originally budgeted. Then they find that they hadn't budgeted for needed repairs to existing schools. And to top it all off, they found that they didn't budget for general maintenance supplies needed for schools when private companies had been let go.
