Horry County Flood Resiliency Virtual Seminar Series Reminder
Horry County Government is hosting a seven-week virtual seminar series on flood mitigation and resiliency as a component of the flood resiliency plan. The virtual seminars take place each Wednesday at 4 p.m. from July 1st to August 12th, 2020. A schedule of topics for discussion is available here and below.
The purpose of the seminars is to provide resources and a venue for community members to ask questions about relevant programs and topics. The series will culminate with an update on the Horry County Resiliency Plan. A variety of County department leaders, as well as State and Federal agency representatives, plan to participate in the series.
The seminars are broadcast live on the Horry County Government Facebook Page, Government Access Channel (Spectrum/Time Warner channel 1301 or Horry Telephone Cooperative Channel 14), and on the County website at horrycounty.org/resiliencyproject. The format for each session includes one or two presentations followed by an opportunity for virtual attendees to submit questions. The question and answer session will be moderated. Each session is planned to last about an hour.
Participants can submit questions during the seminar by texting (843) 502-0033 (message and data rates may apply) or by emailing email@example.com. Users watching the seminar on the Horry County Government Facebook page can submit their questions in the comments section of the live video feed.

Horry County Government COVID19 Operations Update
Following the guidance from Governor McMaster and state agencies, Horry County will allow public access to its buildings with best safety practices being implemented. Safety measures will include:
To help alleviate crowding in public areas, Horry County encourages individuals to continue to do business online and over the phone with county departments where possible. Horry County will continue to phase into operations as conditions permit, and ask for patience if wait times exist.
Anyone planning to visit a County building should be prepared to check in with staff located at the entrance to the facility. Visitors may be asked to wait outside the office or facility depending on the capacity of the facility.
County officials remind everyone to continue to follow CDC and S.C. DHEC safety guidelines as well as Governor McMaster’s executive orders that remain in effect.
Jurors called by the Horry County Clerk of Court are excused through the end of July.
All local Magistrate Offices are open to the public for filings and court.
Central Traffic Court in Conway is open as well as is the Central Jury Court. Central Jury will only be receiving guilty pleas, so the public will not be required to serve jury duty.
