Horry County prepares for RIDE III penny sales tax for road projects

Posted: Updated:

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County is starting the process for a new penny sales tax to pay for more road projects. First, a committee has to come together to figure out which roadways need work across the county.

WMBF News spoke with Eddie Dyer, the man in charge of the RIDE III Advisory Committee, about the next steps.  Dyer tells WMBF News he is rounding up the selected 18 people to get to work on another Penny Sales Tax. The RIDE III Advisory Committee is made up of representatives from all over the area: Horry County Council members hand-picked 12, and the different municipalities in the county picked the remaining six.

There was no set criteria for the committee, the person just had to be someone who knows the area they are representing, and who can be an advocate for the roads there. But this group's road choices won't be the final say. After the advisory committee comes up with a list of road projects, it will go to a smaller six-person committee for review, then Horry County Council has to approve, and then the projects will go to you for approval through an election.

Dyer says he's confident this will be a great committee to start the process of figuring out to use the third round of penny sales tax revenue.

"We should have a pretty good read of what people in the county are thinking when we hear from the committee," said Dyer. "So there might be a new direction, there might not be. We'll just have to wait and see when we all get together."
