Are Horry County cities putting I-73 in jeopardy?

Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach city councils, and Surfside Beach leaders recently gave first reading to ordinances re-allocating hospitality fees and accommodation tax funds, bringing more money into the two cities’ budgets. But it could spell trouble for I-73. In the past the hospital tax and the accommodations taxes were split betweeen the county and the cities and town. Horry County Council previously allocated $25 million annually from these taxes for construction of I-73 from the coast to I-95. If the cities keep those taxes for their own purposes, the project could be in jeopardy. Do you think Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach and North Myrtle Beach should keep these taxes for their own infrastructure and tourism promotion instead of funding I-73?
