HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – More than 100 homeowners attended the public hearing to voice their concerns on county-wide Home Owners Associations. Homeowner after homeowner spoke their piece Wednesday night. Their concerns ranged from feeling ignored, feeling they have no say, construction limitations, and not knowing where their money was going. One homeowner compared her HOA to the Gestapo. More than a hundred people filled the auditorium and many say after years of being ignored by their HOAs, they finally got their say. The Horry County Delegation listened as each homeowner described what they’ve been noticing over the years living and working with their various HOAs.”We could not get a budget from them, yet this year we got a 63 percent increase in amenities,” Marvin Faine said.
“And said they can use our money any way they wanted! That’s plain stealing and cheating!” another homeowner said. “They sent something out saying we’re thinking about going to 55 and over, what do you think? Well, 27 percent of the people never got notified,” another homeowner explained about his HOA, that only sends information via email.

Residents in another HOA-based community, the Myrtle Beach Heron Point Golf and Yacht Club,  have been informed their golf course is closing. Many of their homes back the golf course. Some even moved to the community because of the golf course. Their HOA held a meeting to answer concerns about their golf course closing, but some didn’t feel much was answered. Read more:
