SHORE LINE Published by The Town of Pine Knoll Shores In The Interests Of Its Citizens Post Office Box 757, Atlantic Beach, N. C. 28512 Volume One - Number Six February, 19^0 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.
