Leave no stone unturned.
That's the attitude Shallotte offi
cials are taking concerning sources
of funding for their proposed sewer
The town board's current plan is
to apply for a $1.5 million loan
through the State Revolving Fund at
4 or 5 percent interest.
At a special meeting last Friday,
aldermen authorized a grants writer
from Raleigh to talk with the engi
neer designing the expansion about
going after grants and loans with
lower interest rates.
"We're giving you the right to go
for what you can help us with,"
Mayor Sarah Tripp said. "Anything
that can help us ? anything less than
4 percent for sure ? we're reaching
Tripp and board members David
Gause, Bill Allen and Carson Dur
ham met for an hour with grants
writer Skip Greene and Chip Leav
itt, assistant general manager of
Brunswick Electric Membership
Discussion focused on how to
fund an expansion of the sewer ca
pacity from 206,000 to 750,000 gal
lons per day Construction is expect
ed to begin in July 1995 and take
about 18 months to complete
Leavitt said Brunswick Electric,
through a possible grant from the
Rural Electrification Administration,
may be in a position to loan the
town $400,000 at low interest.
BEMC could use the grant to set
up a revolving loan fund, similar to
the state's revolving fund However,
Ixavitt said BEMC would only
charge about 1 pcrccnt interest to
cover administration costs.
"This is the best avenue we have
right now to help you all, this re
volving fund," Leavitt told the town
Town officials indicated a strong
interest in the loan opportunity and
the savings in interest payments.
"If we could get S 400,000 at 1
percent I'd say go ahead and pursue
that. 1 definitely think we should go
for that," Tripp said.
Said Allen, "I think any money
that we're borrowing in that 1 to 2
percent area I'm glad to get."
Brunswick Electric has already
secured a $10,000 grant for the town
to help pay for the engineering study
by McKim & Creed. BEMC put up
half the money and it was matched
by the statewide Carolina Electric
Greene indicated that Shallotte
could receive grants if town officials
can show that sewer expansion will
attract new business to Shallotte and
create jobs in an area with a double
digit unemployment rate.
Among the opportunities dis
cussed were a $500,000 economic
development grant for job creation
and a $100,000 grant to supplement
what the town will be able to ac
complish through the $1.5 million
Shallotte officials say expansion
will create jobs by providing the
wastewater treatment capacity need
ed to serve a planned shopping cen
ter on N.C. 130 West and the
planned expansion of Mirrorlite's
Smith Avenue plant.
"There arc a lot of little towns be
coming big towns because of grants
like this," Durham said.
'Growl Test' Set At CP&L
I arolina Power and Ljghl will
test the alert notification sirens in
the l()-mile area around CP&L's
Brunswick nuclear plant on Thurs
day, Oct 20
The low-volume test will sound
like a "growl" and will last only a
few seconds. Residents should not
hear the test unless they are very
close to a siren at the time Low-vol
ume tests are not intended to chcck
siren volume, hut to make sure each
CP&L conducts silent siren tests
every two weeks and conducts
"growl" tests at least every three
months A full-volume test is con
ducted yearly. The rotating sirens
arc mounted on tall poles at 34 loca
tions within 10 miles of the Bruns
The sounding of the sirens does
not mean the public should evacu
ate If an emergency occurred, the
sirens would alert the public to listen
to the radio and television stations
for information and instructions
from the Emergency Broadcast
Questions about the tests may be
directed to county or state emer
gency management agency offices,
