State Representative William Bailey visited North Myrtle Beach City Hall last Friday to present a check in the amount of $1 million to Mayor Marilyn Hatley. The funds go toward the $14 million 18th Avenue North Ocean Outfall, which begins construction in fall 2020.
In an accompanying letter, Representative Bailey thanked Mayor Hatley for her “selfless leadership not only for North Myrtle Beach, but the state as a whole.”
Mayor Hatley commended Representative Bailey for the “wonderful job he is doing for House District 104 and all of South Carolina” and thanked him for his efforts to help fund the City’s Ocean Outfalls.
The 18th Avenue North Ocean Outfall will collect storm water from between 14th and 23rd Avenues North. It will also help reduce flooding problems along 11th Avenue North, reduce the amount of storm water that enters the marsh off Sea Mountain Highway and reduce flooding that occurs on Ocean Boulevard between 18th and 20th Avenues North after heavy rain, which also negatively impacts a large oceanfront condominium property.
Representative Bailey serves on these House Committees: Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee; Interstate Cooperation Committee and the S.C. House Tax Policy Review Committee.
The city thanks Representative Bailey for his work on behalf of North Myrtle Beach and House District 104.
