• The plan to bring a food truck program all across Horry County was shut down by council members at an Oct. 18 meeting, despite a large local support. The one-year pilot plan would have allowed a number of mobile food vendors to run around the area. A few council members showed concern about the competition between mobile food vendors and stationary restaurants. The idea cannot be discussed for another year. However, it does not mean there will never be food trucks in Horry County in the future.
