On Monday, March 23, all City of North Myrtle Beach buildings closed to entry by the public until further notice. However, all city employees report to work as usual and all city services continue according to their regular schedules.
Police, Fire/Rescue, Sanitation, Water and Sewer and all other city services are provided as usual, the only difference being that all city buildings are closed to entry by the public.
Many of our daily customers can conduct business with the city online. These online options are available to you:
Renew business licenses and pay hospitality taxes at https://northmyrtlebeach.progressivecloud.net/webrenewals/.
Pay utility bills at https://www.govhost.com/northmyrtlebeach-sc/.
Use the drive-thru at City Hall to drop off business license applications and renewals and to make hospitality tax and utility bill payments.
Complete all planning and development permits (including payments) and plan review processes at https://northmyrtlebeachsc.viewpointcloud.com/.
Applications for resident and nonresident property owner parking decals may be submitted at https://northmyrtlebeach.vc3.com/main/default. If you experience problems, call 843-280-5509 for assistance (Monday-Friday, 8a.m.-5p.m.).
If you experience a problem with an online service other than parking decal applications or if access to the service you need is not available online, please call 843-280-5555 (Monday-Friday, 8a.m.-5p.m.), and we will connect you to the person who can help you.
