When people say they are going to the beach, around here that usually means Myrtle. There may be no “off season” at Myrtle Beach soon. Year round pay to park could be coming soon to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
According to WPDE, right now Myrtle Beach parking runs from March to October. The parking runs from 2$ to 15$. Now the city is one step closer to making paid parking a year round thing. Myrtle Beach spokesman Mark Kruea tells the Myrtle Beach television station that the 365 day plan is meant to simplify things. He gives this statement to the TV station, “I know that sounds strange, but if you have regular parking throughout the year, there’s no learning curve for everybody when you go back to having paid parking in March, or when you go away from having paid parking at the end of October.”
The additional revenue will go back into the town and is expected to bring in an additional $250,000 yearly. The city council is expecting to take up the matter May 9. If passed it could go into effect July 1.
