• 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 IV Niimber ? April I983 Ken Haller and Noel Yancey - Co-Editors At its regular monthly meeting on April 12th, the FKS Board of Commissioners adopted an **Annexation Ordinance” designed to make annexation of the area between the western boundary of PIS and Indian Beach effective on July 1, V/ithin the time frame specified by statute, the annexation is subject to challenge in the Courts by owners of property in the area to be annexed, COMMISSIONERS * The *82-'83 budget was amended to increase the funds of the Department of Streets and Public Property by and to decrease the Town's unappropriated balance by the same amount. The increase will be used by the Department to provide a watering system for the grounds of the Town Hall, Commissioner Johnson regretfully announced that PKS will not receive State funds for the purchase of a new ambulance, since the sums available for such purposes have ^^een awarded to two other communities, Don Clements, who had requested time before the Board, appeared there to complain about the proposed Taylor-Schrum subdivision (see ‘'Planning Board”, this issue). He stated that he owned property on Oakleaf Drive and asserted that the Board of Commiss ioners cared nothing about the value of his property. A somewhat heated dialogue ensued between Mr, Clements on the one hand and the Mayor and Commissioner Johnson on the other. Apparently Mr, Clements believed that the Planning Board had approved the subdivision, whereas Board members insisted that only the Commissioners could give a final approval or disapproval and that they had done neither. The Finance Officer announced that tax collections of $193,000, are anticipated and she reported that the Fund Balance exceeds $300,000, Don Brock appeared on behalf of the owner of Lot 29 in Maritime Place, who had earlier appealed to the Board of Adjustment for a variance from requirements of set-back from the ocean. That Board had postponed a decision on the appeal, as reported under "Board of Adjustment” in this issue. Following considerable discussion, in which the Town Attorney and Ed Baker (Chairman of the Board of Adjustment) joined, it was decided that the matter should be left with Mr, Baker's Board. He then indicated his willing ness to reconvene the Board of Adjustment for a further look at the case. The Mayor announced that the week of May 8-14 is declared "Municipal Clerk's Week" in PKS and elsewhere in the State, in honor of those who serve in that capacity.
