HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A meeting will be held Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. to discuss the fire fund in Horry County.
Horry County Fire Chief Fred Crosby says there needs to be a property tax increase. The meeting will discuss one that could add about $3.5 million each year to the fire rescue fund.
The change could have major effects on the fire department, who works with out-dated equipment right now. If the property tax increase is approved, the changes will go into effect on July 1.
