$3 million to go toward Wrightsville Beach renourishment


Wrightsville Beach is getting $3 million for beach renourishment. The New Hanover County commissioners voted Tuesday night to allocate one and half million dollars of the county's room occupancy tax to renourishment. The state contributed another $1.5 million, which will go toward dredging the channel and putting sand on Wrightsville Beach and Masonboro Island. "I think it's a great idea,” said Brad Pryor of Wrightsville Beach. “I think anything you can do to keep the beach renourished and healthy is excellent and you need to dredge the channels anyways so it's not a big deal." The work is expected to start around November.
