Some oceanfront property owners being put on notice

Some oceanfront property owners are being put on notice - remove old sandbags, or face hefty fines. Officials say some sandbag structures are getting in the way of the public's access and enjoyment of area beaches. Sandbags that have been on the beaches longer than their five-year permit period were to have been removed by May 1, 2008. Jim Gregson of the North Carolina Division of Coastal Management said about 20 letters were recently sent out, mostly to property owners on the Outer Banks.

Enough is enough GET RID OF

Enough is enough GET RID OF ILLEGAL sand bags NOW

enough is enough

and when the sand bags are removed and the tides and current get under the buildings and make them uninhabitable, look for the town or county to fund a buy out. Look no further north than North Topsail Beach. The only ones who made money on that activity were the lawyers.
