The chickens have come home to roost. The country is $16 Trillion in debt and counting. The days of the federal goverment spending millions on beach renourishment have come to an end not because politicians like McIntyre want it to stop, but because it HAS to stop due to lack of funding.
THe solution? Increase the occupancy tax enough to pay for beach renourishment. New Hanover county should have seen this situation coming. Now it is time to take positive steps. If people want to use the beaches...the users of them should pay higher occupancy or "users" taxes and stop expecting federal taxpayers in Iowa to pay for beaches they will never use.
