MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Surfside Beach has hired an engineering firm as it makes progress on plans for a new pier and is holding a public meeting.

The Sun News (https://bit.ly/2qDsZQ1 ) reports that the beach selected Collins Engineers of Charleston. The Town Council approved hiring Collins at a meeting Tuesday.

Hurricane Matthew in October had done significant damage to Surfside Pier.

The new pier could be a simple walkway or have a restaurant on it.
