Brunswick County to remain in Myrtle Beach metro area

READ MORE:
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) -- Appeals from local officials failed to persuade federal agencies that Brunswick County is tied more closely to Wilmington than to Myrtle Beach.
 
The federal Office of Management and Budget found no reason that Brunswick should be moved back to the Wilmington Metropolitan Statistical Area, according to a response recently sent to U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre's office.
 
"The OMB and Census found no... basis for an exception with Brunswick County," the response says. "It meets the criteria in the standards to be a central county of the Myrtle Beach, S.C. MSA"
