The City of North Myrtle Beach has furloughed some part-time and full-time employees because there is currently "no demand for the services they provide."

"At this point in time, some City departments have had to furlough more employees than others. That is simply because there is no current demand for some of the services offered by some departments. For example, the Aquatic & Fitness Center is closed, all spring sports tourism events are canceled, umbrella and beach chair rentals and Italian Ice sales are postponed, etcetera," the city said.

Furloughed means the employee is temporarily not working and is not receiving pay.

"Hopefully, all furloughed employees will one day be able to return to their jobs with the City," the city said.
