City leaders vote to pay for portion of Cherry Grove dredging project, leave residents to foot $5.5M

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - North Myrtle Beach city leaders voted to pay for a portion of the Cherry Grove dredging project, which means residents will need to fund $5.5 million worth of the work.

In the past, the city said it's not fair to fully-fund the project because the project won't benefit all the taxpayers.

The dredging is set to begin in October.
