If

If we spend every marginal dollar for beach replenishment and nothing else then we are tied annually to this 'funding drive".
Some County residents never use the beach,so should taxpayers pay for sand they never set their feet in?
10 years ago the Cape Fear River was dredged to 42 feet.
This was sold to public as a "commercial need",of which it was.
The LARGER need however was to take the dredged material and cover the beaches after the Hurricanes.
We spend alot on Beach replenishment,and no doubt this is huge for tourism,but why not ask all the merchants in beach communities chip-in,and not the residents?
