MYRTLE BEACH- Voters in two subdivisions in Horry County decide this week whether they want to be annexed by Myrtle Beach.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports (http://bit.ly/1ko8rNx) that the vote Tuesday is whether more than 600 acres that includes the subdivisions and more than a dozen businesses will be annexed to the city.
The areas are so-called doughnut holes - unincorporated areas which are completely surrounded by the city.
Those in favor of annexation say it would mean better streets as well as police and fire protection.
