BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) –- There will be no quarter-cent sales tax increase in Brunswick County.

A referendum for the hike failed by a 60-40 margin Tuesday. The estimated $3 million generated would have gone to beach and school projects.

Voters on Bald Head Island, though, did overwhelmingly support bonds to pay for beach improvements. By a 90-10 margin, voters approved $18,000,000 of bonds plus interest will to pay capital costs of beach improvements, including building groins and moving sand to protect against beach erosion and for flood and hurricane protection.
