Those having difficulty paying their water bill should call 843-280-5550 and select Option #2.
BUSINESS LICENSE RENEWALS

A business must renew its business license to continue operating in the city, however, in the case where a business may not reopen until after the business license due date, the business may wait to renew its license on the date it reopens. The City will waive penalties for late renewals but a business may not operate in the city without a business license.
LOCAL ACCOMMODATIONS TAX AND HOSPITALITY TAX PAYMENTS
Businesses must continue to file their Accommodations Tax and Hospitality Tax returns on time.
