HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — The Horry County School Board in Monday’s meeting approved additional funding for safety and security initiatives as well as for the demolition of the old Socastee Elementary School.
$15 million will be funded for safety and security initiatives, while $1.1 million will be used toward a demolition project of the old Socastee Elementary School, which was initially passed in September.
A spokesperson for Horry County Schools, Lisa Bourcier, said the items were passed unanimously.
“Those two items required a little bit more discussion, which we had today,” she said. “Everybody felt comfortable enough in voting unanimously to approve both of those items.”
