made a stupid and egotistical decision to terminate Mr. Walters with only a short time remaining before his announced retirement. This council, all but one, chose to blow 116K just to prove they could.
Oak Island by your statement must be different than other like size communities and must not qualify for the same services that any normal city in NC takes for granted. The previous council and mayor inherited the failed actions of previous boards and they at least had the courage to bring Oak Island into the 21st. Century. Expensive, yes! but if others had done their jobs and spread things out a little we wouldn't have taken on so much. Sir, decisions to install sewer, build the government complex and upgrade the fire departments along with building parks and rec. facilities might not be good for you and your soured friends but they were good for Oak Island. Oak Island is a destination in competition with every east coast community. Our property values are tied directly to the presentation we offer.
Sir, if you and others can't afford to live here there is an option you ought to consider. You should understand that a growing and progressive town can not base it's economy on fixed income!!
