South Carolina: Horry County council approves AvCraft's incentive package

The Horry County council approved a resolution Tuesday night that gives AvCraft Aviation of Myrtle Beach the promised $100,000 incentive package.

The measure passed in a vote eight to three. Councilmen Marion Foxworth, Jody Prince and Carl Schwartzkoff were against giving the company the money. Foxworth denied to comment and the other men were unavailable after the meeting.

With the money, AvCraft will be able to expand its operations and hire 150 additional employees. It was a deal worked out with the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development.

Brad Lofton, the group's director, said the approval is good news for AvCraft and Horry County.

Lofton said the company has already begun to fill the 150 jobs and encourages anyone with aviation skills to apply.
