OUR MAYOR - Surely there is no one In Town who doesn't know that Wayne Cleveland
has been spending sone tine in Carteret General* Surely, too, there is no one in
Town who hasn't been fervently hoping botli for his speedy recovery and for the oppor
tunity to express to him and to Karolyn our deep concern. So, on behalf of the
entire Town, we say **God bless, **Get well soon" and “Come on home!**
The PKS Town Board began iti^ study of an engineering firm's recommendations for
improving drainage in the eastern portion of town at its October 11 meeting by voting to
extend for 60 days a moratorium on construction in part of the affected area.
DIUINAGE PLAN Mayor Pro-Tem Bill Dixson, who was presiding due to the ilness of Mayor
STUDY BEGBGS Cleveland, recommended extending the moratorium while a number of
——— qiuestions in connection with the drainage recommendations are settled.
He said these questions would include whether the town would bear part
of the cost estimated by the firm of Henry Von Oesen and Associates at $150,000 or more.
Commissioner Aubrey Johnson made the motion to extend the building moratorium aind
suggested that a public hearing be held at which representatives of the engineering firm
would be available to explain their recommendations and to answer questions,
Dixson noted that it would take some time before work can begin on the drainage
recommendations. Plans would have to be made to raise the money, and these would have
to be submitted to a vote of the people.
The proposals plan call for digging drainage ditches from the vicinity of Juniper
Road to carry runoff water to the canal. The ditches would follow existing drainage
rights-of-way for the most part. The Von Oesen firm estimated it would cost an additional
$50,000 to enclose the drainage ditches with pipe.
The moratorium on building applies to some 21 lots lying between the canal and
Juniper Road, the Bogue Banks Country Club property, areas surrounding the cul-de-sacs
on the north side of Salter Path Road just east of Juniper and a tract at the eastern
end of Cypress Drive.
The 'boaxd discussed, but did not take final action on a rewrite of the town's water
ways ordinance after Commissioner Larry Jerome stated that the rewrite included several
substantive changes.
