Through Water Plans With Residents
HY TKKKY I'OI'K
Residents I rom live communities will
meet Friday to hear how the county plans to
provide them with water.
Design work has begun on Special
Assessment Districts (SADs) for
Raiulolphville Road, I'iney Grove Road and
portions of Mill Creek Road near Bolivia.
Also, several neighborhixxls have been
combined to form SAD 19, including Green
Hill Road, Cherrytree Road, Crabapple
Road, Governor's Road, Zion Church Road.
Town Creek Road. Old Town Creek Koail
and Maco Road.
SADs are areas where residents are as
sessed the cost of installing water lines
along their property.
Property owners in these areas will meet
with representatives from the Brunswick
County Public Utilities Department Friday,
Sept. 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the public assembly
building at the Brunswick County
Government Complex in Bolivia.
Public Utilities Director Jerry Webb de
cided to hold one community meeting for
residents ot the proposed water projects,
which represents SI million worth of coun
ty water lines.
"The purpose is u> get people in touch
with what we do, how we do it and the pro
cess of SADs be lore we go to a public hear
ing," said Webb.
Public hearings will be held later on each
Because the communities are beside ex
isting main transmission lines, they repre
sent areas that the department can begin
work on immediately. It is the last ol the
neighborhoods tluit can be served from
SADs without extending main transmission
lines through costly capital improvement
Combining neighborhoods into one larger
project, as is the case lor SAD 19, can cut
down on costs lor the residents, said Webb
"That's usually one ol the questions that
comes up at the community meetings," said
Ibe projects are listed as follows. Tile es
timated cost may decrease lor some areas as
a result of combining neighborhoods into
one SAD project:

Calabash Wants Planners
To Rethink Resignations

Calabash Commissioners want
the seven town planning board
members who resigned last week to
rethink the move and consider a

Chairman Pati Lewellyn, and board
members Warren Pienack. Frank
Chancier, Bruce Bunt, Forrest King
and Jack Hannaway stepped down
from their appointed posts last
In a joint, three-page letter of res
ignation, they said there was a lack
of sup|Hirt and guidance from the
town commissioners who appointed
them and poor communication be
tween the two groups.
Commissioner Jon Sanbom, who
drafted the statement of direction,
said it "answers substantially" the
concerns that were raised in the
planning board's letter.
"It is not meant to be a letter of
rebuttal or an argumentative answer
to the letter that they have forward
ed to us," Sanbom said at a special
meeting Tuesday called to discuss
the sudden resignations.

as annexation, waste disposal, zon

community services and finances.
Commissioners agreed Tuesday
that a lack of communication was
the biggest problem between the
two boards and that both groups
were at fault.
"None of us arc being paid for
il," Commissioner Phyllis Manning
said. "We should gel together."
Commissioner Ray Card defend
ed some of ihe recent planning
board actions, including a plan to
determine the amount of solid waste
going to the Persimmon Road dump
He said the survey would have
provided the town with stall sties lor

would have cost a maximum of
Card also said the planning
board's work to prepare for the 91 1
emergency telephone system was in
order. "They did exactly what we
asked them to do," he said.
However, Card objected to a
statement in the planning board's
letter that indicated financial prob
lems. He said the town clerk. Janet
Thomas, adheres to strict "money
"She's like a hawk on every pen
ny that comes in and goes out of
this town," Card said. "I think that
was a bum rap."
