Myrtle Beach city workers who have had to work harder due to staffing shortages could get a big thank you this year. It all comes after job shortages during the pandemic pushed those employees of the city to fill gaps in other needed areas. During a specially held meeting for the Myrtle Beach City Council, an ordinance was presented to amend the city’s budget to allow a one-time bonus for city employees. The city says that staffing and filling vacant positions remains a challenge, but the staffing shortages have led to savings of nearly $3.5 million. In addition to extra funds, city leaders also said that a good year of tourism brought on a surplus and now it could help fund a few new projects. New fire trucks and renovations of Crabtree gymnasium are just a few items on the list that the extra money could help pay for.
