Pause Beach Renourishment Project
To the Mayor and members of the Oak Island, NC Town Council:
As our duly elected representatives, it is your fiduciary responsibility to serve the long-term best interests of the citizens of Oak Island.
As such, we as residents and property owners of Oak Island, are respectfully asking the following of the Mayor and Town Council:
- Pause voting on the Beach Renourishment Project for 60 days to allow additional due diligence for alternative cost-effective environmental solutions;
- Explore and exhaust all possible county, state and federal funding sources for the maintenance of/renourishment of state owned public coastline;
- Explore and exhaust all possible tax-based revenue streams to allow for an equitable distribution of cost without placing an undue burden on any one person or area including but not limited to sales tax, hotel tax, and property taxes.
- Explore and exhaust all non-tax based revenue streams.
