GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) — The Georgetown County Public Services Department has scheduled a public meeting in Murrells Inlet to present plans for an inlet dredging project expected to begin this fall.

According to a press release, the meeting will take place at 6 p.m., on Thursday, July 21 at the Murrells Inlet Community Center, located at 4462 Murrells Inlet Road.

County officials and others working on the project will be on hand to review plans and answer questions, the release stated. There will also be an opportunity for public input.

A main component of the project will address dredging of jurisdictional areas belonging to the Army Corps of Engineers. This component will also include a beach renourishment element, as sand reclaimed in the dredging effort will be deposited on the beachfront at Garden City Beach.

A second component of the project involves dredging of access channels the county is required to maintain. An option was also given to private landowners to partner in the dredging effort.

According to the press release, the project is funded through the Georgetown County Capital Project Sales Tax, which went into effect in May 2015, following a public vote.

Several other projects funded through the tax are already underway, including countywide road improvements and construction of fire substations.

All members of the public with an interest in the Murrells Inlet dredging project are encouraged to attend the meeting.
