Horry County is about to demolish 11 residential homes throughout the county.

On Tuesday, council voted to allow Horry County Administrator Chris Eldridge to take "such actions as may be necessary" to demolish "dwellings unfit for human habitation."

Horry County spokesperson Kelly Moore said that the county uses complaints to decide which structures need to go.

"The current system is complaint-based," Moore said. "We receive complaints and recommendations are made based on those complaints. If citizens wish to submit a complaint, they can be in touch with our code enforcement department."
