COMMISSIONERS MEETING: At their March 1 meeting in the Marine Resources
Center the Commissioners voted to request Carteret County to allow Pine
Knoll Shores to issue all landscape permits within its town limits rather
than have permits issued at the Beaufort Courthouse, The Commissioners
were interested in providing close supervision and communication at the
local level concerning grading and clearing of lots prior to any construction*
Interested citizens should report any violations of the building ordinances
immediately to the to^^m office in order to stop unnecessary clearing*
Mayor Haller commended the Police Department for the report given by Chief
Overman, including a letter from Cartoret Tech thanking the tov/n for police
training given by the department* The mayor again urged citizens to support
our police by agreeing to show up as witnesses or by sii/earing out a warrant.
Meeting of March l6 - Mail should continue to be addressed to Pine Knoll
Shores, Route 1, Morehead City, 28557* not to a post office address of Pine
Knoll Shores according to a letter received from the Post Office. There is
no feeling on the part of the Post Office Department that a separate post
office is needed here. After all, Atlantic Beach is very close when we need
to mail packages'*
Tax status: All taxes are in except 15 listings, representing 2*73% which
is V-.RY GOOD.
The Commissioners voted to sponsor residents taking the training course for
rescue and first aid work to be given at Carteret Tech beginning March 31*

beautifying and landscaping, along v/ith neighboring tovms on the island.

is federally funded.
