MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A $10 million performing arts center for Myrtle Beach is a step closer to reality.

City voters on Tuesday agreed to let the city raise property taxes to build the center. The proposal was approved by 54 percent of the voters.

Supporters have been working for 15 years on the project and Tuesday's vote allows the city to exceed the city debt limit set by the state to finance borrowing.

The center would provide a venue for off-Broadway shows, small symphonies, chorales and dance performances.

The vote represents all but one precinct in the city where one of the voting machines went down. Those votes were not counted Tuesday night but city spokesman Mark Kruea says there are not enough votes there to change the outcome.
