In light of today’s filings by the South Carolina Supreme Court, the Horry County Government budget retreat scheduled for Friday, December 4, 2020 has been postponed to Friday, January 15, 2021. This will give staff time to evaluate what, if any, impacts this decision will have on our FY21 and FY22 budgets.
As a matter of course, we will not offer any further commentary on substantive matters related to pending litigation.
