AN ACT TO AMEND ACT 876 OF 1966, RELATING TO THE CREATION OF THE MURRELL'S INLET-GARDEN CITY FIRE DISTRICT, SO AS TO AUTHORIZE THE ANNUAL LEVY AND COLLECTION OF NOT EXCEEDING TEN MILLS UPON ALL TAXABLE PROPERTY WITHIN THE DISTRICT IN ORDER TO DEFRAY THE COST OF ITS OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. (A) The General Assembly finds that the Murrell's Inlet-Garden City Fire District is a special purpose district created pursuant to Act 876 of 1966. Included within the boundaries of the district are properties situated in both Georgetown and Horry Counties.
(B) Section 6 of Act 876 authorizes the auditors and treasurers of Georgetown and Horry Counties to levy and collect a tax of not more than five mills upon taxable property of the district within their respective jurisdictions in order to defray expenses incurred by the Board of Fire Control, the governing body of the district. Owing to the increase in operational and maintenance costs incurred by the district since 1966, the General Assembly finds that it is in order to authorize the levy and collection of additional millage for the district.
Tax to be levied
SECTION 2. Section 6 of Act 876 of 1966 is amended to read:
"Section 6. The auditors and treasurers of Georgetown and Horry Counties are directed to levy and collect a tax of not more than ten mills, to be determined by the Board of Fire Control, upon all taxable property of the district for the purpose of defraying its operational and maintenance costs. All monies collected from this levy must be credited to the fire district."
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
