Update March 1, 2013: It's that time of year again (to update this story!)...
Update March 1, 2012: Just a friendly reminder that parking meter enforcement starts today in the city of Myrtle Beach.
So make sure to stop by the bank and exchange that $10 bill for a nice roll of shiny quarters, because it'll cost you more to park this year.
First Report February 27th: We have many seasons beyond the traditional four here in Myrtle Beach. There's tourist season, hurricane season, and Spring Break season. Get ready for the start of another - parking meter season.
Beginning on March 1, 2012, the City of Myrtle Beach will have their meters up, running, and expecting to be fed. The meters are in operation from 9 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week, through September 30. The fee for not paying the price to park starts at $20 and escalates while the ticket remains unpaid.
If you happen to find yourself parking at a meter without the appropriate amount of change, you can call 626-PARK (626-7275), and the City will send out one of their ambassadors to assist you. You can also use the ParkMobile option, which uses your cell phone and a credit card to avoid a ticket.
For more information, have a look at the City of Myrtle Beach's parking meter page.
