$20,000 a year for the county, the new tax will only generate about
While the measure passed, it did face stiff and lingering
opposition from a couple of council members. Councilmen Marion
Foxworth and Mike Ryan voted against the change. "This is nothing
more than a rather large tax cut for a rather small group of
people," Foxworth said, as quoted by the Myrtle Beach Sun-News.

aircraft owners were voting with their wings and moving their
planes out of the county. Right now, about 146 people have
registered general aviation aircraft in Horry County.
