Police Department investigation continues in Wrightsville Beach; smoking ban, Crystal Pier discussion to come

READ MORE: Police Department investigation continues in Wrightsville Beach

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- The Town of Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen held a town meeting Thursday night looking for some answers on a police department investigation. The board also discussed the future of Crystal Pier, but answers were hard to come by.

The town has three of its police officers on administrative leave, and the investigation is ongoing

Mayor David Cignotti said he cannot comment on the investigation.

"Currently the chief of police has been working with the town manager and our town attorney, so we will release information as soon as we can," Cignotti said.

Police Chief Dan House believes the investigation is nearing a conclusion. He also said there is no comment until then.

There was also interest at the meeting in what the town will do about the damaged Crystal Pier, but that, too, will have to wait.

"That will be a public hearing that has been postponed, so we will probably discuss that at the April 12 meeting," Cignotti said.

The mayor said a proposed smoking ban on the beach will be heard at a March public meeting.

While many issues were down-streamed, the Board of Aldermen announced a surf contest and beach cleanup in March and Surfers Healing autism event in April.
