Myrtle Beach residents, business owners thank city for safer Memorial Day weekend

The atmosphere in Myrtle Beach City Council chambers was completely different than this time last year as residents and business owners thanked the city for the plans put in place to try to make sure Memorial Day weekend was as safe as it could be.

“I was upset last year,” David Perkins said during a City Council meeting Tuesday. “I was pissed off. This year, I want to apologize. ... This year was so much better.”
