If you are a PKS er required to pay the 1975 Fire District tax and haven't yet paid,
it might be wise to consider doing so. Our Town Attorney has said that if you don’t
pay, the tax will become a lien against your property. This can be avoided by making
the payment and then recovering it from Atlantic Beach as reported in the Carteret
County News-Times of February 12 (and this Shoreline),
IMPORTANT reminder for PKS residents — when you fill in your Federal Income tax
form, you will find a question ”In what city, town, village, etc,, do you live?,”

When we had the February storm which blew down so many branches, some of us had such
a pile of brush to bum that we wondered whether we needed a burning permit. We askec
at the Town Office for a review of the regulations, and here is a summary. Paper,
leaves, litter, shavings (i,e, a small fire) may be burned if (a) an adult person is
in constant attendance!^. (^) a- connected water hose is available at the site of the
fire; (c) the site of the fire is a safe distance from adjacent building, trees, or
inflammable refuse; (d) the wind velocity does not exceed ten miles per hour. For
any larger fire, you should secure a burning permit from the building inspector. In
cidentally, he reminds us that nothing can be bvirned on the shoulders of the road.
GEORGE KLOEK has been selected chairman of the Environmental Resources Commission for
