The town is also investing in some new equipment to help crews pick up debris and tree limbs off the streets plus a mini excavator to help clean the channels that run through neighborhoods.
The proposed budget will also address an issue Surfside Beach, as well as the rest of the Grand Strand, must face in the coming years. That is beach nourishment.
Mayor Samples hopes the work is done no later than 2018 and the town is getting ready to pay for it.
Town council still needs to give this proposed budget the green light at upcoming meetings.
Mayor Samples said he expects it to pass some time in May.
