Horry County Government's offices, and all circuit/family and magistrates courts will be closed Thursday, September 5, 2019, and Friday, September 6, 2019. At this time, Horry County Government offices will remain open on a normal operating schedule Wednesday, September 4, 2019. However, staffing may be lighter than usual and we encourage members of the public to call before they travel to the Government and Justice Center to ensure the office they are visiting is open. 

In addition, the Public Safety Committee meeting scheduled to take place next week on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 has been cancelled. 

Between 60 to 70 percent of Horry County’s workforce are deemed “essential” employees and will be working to support the Horry County Emergency Operations Center, the ongoing evacuation of Horry County Zone A and the needs of our citizens and local businesses.
