HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A settlement between Horry County and SunCruz Casino is scheduled to take place this week for nearly half a million dollars.
The county required the casino boat company charge a boarding fee during its operations. SunCruz stopped paying the county years ago, County Attorney Arrigo Carotti explained at the meeting Tuesday night.
In January 2014, Big M began talking about taking over SunCruz, which the plans are still in the works to do so.
The county plans to settle for $484,272.
The closing is scheduled to take place no later than August 15.
SunCruz stopped its operations Monday, July 28.
