Myrtle Beach raises taxes to throttle bike rallies

June 19, 2008 by  

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WIS) – After years of complaining, people living in Myrtle Beach may finally get some relief from the loud roar of motorcycles in May.

For years, residents have been trying to get the city of Myrtle Beach to do away with the two biker weeks held every May.

They are tired of the noise, reckless driving, crime and litter that comes with it.

Now the city council is taking action. Wednesday night the council took the first step at eliminating bike weeks.

It passed a new property tax increase, and the extra money will go toward efforts to stop the bikers from coming next year. Also, a motion was passed to cancel any city contracts with biker-related events.

    My wife and I stopped going down to Myrtle years ago. It is painfully obvious that they do not want us down there. It is a shame,it’s a nice place.

    What has your experience been with the Myrtle Beach rally?

    The Myrtle Beach area is a fun place to go. It is a shame the people there do not like our money. We have many places that want us. I guess the locals have their rights just like we do. We don’t need to go where we aren’t wanted.

    The bikers who make unnecessary noise, burnouts, and the drunks hurt us. If you get the tourism website from South Carolina, put a word in about how you will go where you are wanted.

    Scoot to live!
