Myrtle Beach City Manager John Pedersen will keep his post for another year.
The city council Tuesday approved a one-year contract with a 3% raise.
Prior to the adjustment, city spokesman Mark Kruea said Pedersen’s salary is $193,627.83 annually. He has a monthly car allowance of $850.
Pedersen began working with the city in 2002 as an assistant city manager. Previously, he had been the assistant city manager and finance director for the city of Durham, North Carolina. In late 2014, he took over the Myrtle Beach city manager job when Tom Leath retired.
Myrtle Beach has the council-manager form of municipal government. The city council hires the manager to oversee the daily operations of the city and its staff.
