Paid parking is returning to Myrtle Beach beginning March 1 and will be in effect from through Oct. 31.

City residents are eligible for resident parking decals, as long as they have a vehicle registered in the City of Myrtle Beach and that city property taxes have been paid.

Those interested can register online and must have a 2016 Horry County Vehicle Paid Tax Receipt and a current South Carolina Vehicle Registration Card.

The plan for paid parking was finalized in 2016 when city council voted to charge at beach accesses along Ocean Boulevard north of 31st Avenue North.

The decision caused controversy for county residents who would come to the beach in city limits.
