NMB City Council Adopts Anti-Littering Resolution

City Council has adopted a resolution in support of Governor Henry McMaster’s proclamation naming April “Zero Tolerance for Litter Month" in South Carolina.

Mayor Marilyn Hatley presented the city’s resolution to representatives of the Keep North Myrtle Beach Beautiful Committee (KNMBB). Shown left to right in the accompanying photo are Mayor Marilyn Hatley, and KNMBB representatives Rob Kayton, Linda Siceloff, Gregg Barnhill.

The Governor’s proclamation calls on South Carolina’s citizens and visitors to keep the state litter free. During April, enhanced law enforcement efforts are focused on the state’s litter laws.

The city’s resolution echoes the Governor’s assertions that South Carolina is a beautiful state with an abundance of natural resources, and that all should want to keep it clean.

The resolution also encourages people to consider the practical costs of littering— it detracts from economic development, areas of commerce, and real estate values.

The city’s resolution urges residents and visitors to work together to keep North Myrtle Beach and South Carolina clean.
