Voters to decide whether to join Myrtle Beach

      MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Voters in two subdivisions in Horry County decide this week whether they want to be annexed by Myrtle Beach.

      The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports ( ) that the vote Tuesday is whether more than 600 acres that includes the subdivisions and more than a dozen businesses will be annexed to the city.

      The areas are so-called doughnut holes - unincorporated areas which are completely surrounded by the city.

      Those in favor of annexation say it would mean better streets as well as police and fire protection.
