Permit For Bo
HY DOUG RUTTER
Varnamtown officials arc one step
closcr to rebuilding the community's
boat ramp on Lockwood Folly Riv
er, voting Monday to apply for a
state permit needed to do the work.
Despite previous opposition from
a handful of residents who live near
the waterfront, aldermen voted un
animously to submit a CAMA per
mit application. Board member Ton
ya Robbins was absent.
Earlier plans to build a boat ramp
44 feet wide have been scaled down
by the town's planning board. It has
recommended a ramp 16 feet wide
on land owned by Nicky Varnam,
Junior Thompson and Blondell Rob
In January, a dozen residents who
live near the ramp turned out at a
town meeting to oppose the planned
improvements. They said fixing the
ramp would draw more boaters to
Varnamtown and make existing
parking problems worse.
At the board's February meeting.
Mayor Judy Galloway announced
that she had received a petition con
taining 87 signatures of people sup
porting town plans to rebuild the fa
Alderman Ada McDonald also re
ported at that time that the town had
come up with a solution to the prob
lem of parked vehicles that block
driveways near the ramp.
In addition to leasing property for
the ramp, she said Varnam had
agreed to provide land along Var
namtown Road for boat ramp park
ing. Town officials want to fix the
ramp because people damage their
boats when they use it.
Trash Pickup Coming?
Vamamtown's finance committee
has started working on the 1993-94
budget and plans to meet again
Tuesday, April 27.
At Monday's meeting, aldermen
kicked mound the idea of including
money for trash pickup in next
year's budget. Several board mem
bers said residents have asked for
Town officials agreed that if a
company is hired to pick up garbage,
the residents and business owners
would have to foot most the bill.
"I can't see having trash pickup
and the users not pay," McDonald
Mayor Pro Tem Ennis Swain,
chairman of the finance committee,
said estimated prices for trash pick
up two years ago were about S8 per
house per month. He said the cost is
probably higher now.
Mayor Galloway said the town
would have to poll residents to see
how many would sign up for trash
pickup and be willing to pay for it.
"1 don't know how much more
we can get in the budget this year,"

No Rim Hangers, Please
To serve the community's youth,
Varnamtown officials plan to put up
two basketball goals in the town hall
There's a catch. If the goals are de
stroyed by people hanging on the rim
they'll only be replaced one time.
Resident Tcrrencc Galloway had
suggested the town install basketball
goals at last month's meeting, but
town officials wanted to first check
with their insurance company.

BEACH PROPERTY OWNERS
PETITION TO THE
HOLDEN BEACH TOWN BOARD
For the following reasons, we the undersigned, ask the
Town Board of Holden Beach to resist all efforts to cause a
sewer system to be installed on Holden Beach:
?Numerous studies commissioned by the Town have failed
completely to prove a need for a sewer system. Such
pollution as we may have is caused primarily by storm
*Sewer systems traditionally result in over-development,
which in turn adds to storm water run-off, as pointed out in
the 1984 environmental impact study done by the EPA.
*Above is exemplified by the New Hanover sewer system
which has added up to four or five times the original dollar
amount and has not prevented the waters around Wilming
ton from continuing to be closed to shellfishing.
*A sewer system on Holden Beach will benefit only the
special interest groups and we will lose our family beach
Signed: Concerned property owners of Holden Beach
