MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach International Airport does not live off of tax dollars, and it is discussing new things that would bring in more revenue, which could really benefit travelers.

One option for the airport is to lease space out to gas stations, where it would make money on each gallon sold. If the airline doesn't have to spend more money on space, extra profits from things like gas stations could improve service by possibly adding more destinations or flights.

On Wednesday, the City of Myrtle Beach will discuss the future for what surrounds the airport. Interest has been expressed to develop off of Harrelson Blvd., and down Hwy 17 Bypass. The County wants to see high end commercial space and retail, but the City wants to keep a nice balance between nature and development.

    We'll make it to the 90s again at the beach and the middle 90s inland. With temperatures a degree or two cooler than the last several days, no heat advisories are in effect, but the heat index will still climb to between 100 and 104. The afternoon and evening will see just a 30 percent chance of a stray shower or storm.
