PUBLIC HEARING The Board of Commissioners of Pine Knoll Shores has set
March 19, as the date for a public hearing concerning the
ON SILTING PROBLEM silting of the channel in Bogue So\ind paralleling a portion
of the town*s north shore and its approaches to the canal.
Some months ago a committee consisting of Peter Gomar, John Elder and George
milard was asked to investigate the silting and recommend corrective action. Upon
completion of their study they prepared a report and recommendations which were
submitted to the Board of Commissioners.
With respect to the cost of the project commissioner Dixson, the town’s
finance officer, stated that in his opinion the town’s revenue reserve fmds should
not be used for this purpose since these funds are assigned to other municipal
activities. He stated that the funding for the project should involve a matching
grant from the North Carolina State Council for Economic Development. The project,
he said, will cost approximately $100,000 and a matching grant is possible in the
amount'- of $80,000, with the balance, $20,000, to be raised through a special five-
cent tax on all property over a period of one or two years.
To the end that citizens of Pine Knoll Shores should understand the problem
and also make their input available to the Board the hearing has been scheduled for
3^p.m., on Wednesday, March 19, at the Town Hall. The study committee will be on .
hand and a discussion of the financing for the project will be discussed. All
residents of Pine Knoll Shores are urged to attend this important meeting.
