Always a revenue issue and never a spending issue

Wrightsville Beach raises rates even as they brag about such amenities as "beach ambassadors" and license plate/background checking systems (gotta keep out those terrorists).

Carolina Beach keeps squeezing more revenue out of Freeman Park (someday they'll squeeze too hard and actually kill the golden goose) even as they discuss building a giant community pool (did I mention that the beach with a very, very large ocean is right around the corner?).

Oak Island (not known for efficient spending of its revenues) is now talking about parking fees to bring in additional revenues. Never mind that that'll probably cut back on visitor's spending money there (which will probably mean compensating by raising the parking fees for additional revenues from the parking fees they instituted to increase revenues).

Apparently, some of our local “leaders” (don’t even get me started on our state and federal “leaders”) have completely deluded themselves into thinking that the party will never end.

I disagree.
