Town Council held a Special Meeting Thursday to discuss the electrical power options for the pier. After a lengthy discussion, a decision was made by vote of the council and the work will proceed. All delays regarding the pier have now been addressed. The completion date is expected to be April 2023.
Tomorrow is the annual Family Festival on Surfside Drive between the intersections of Hollywood Dr. and Dogwood Dr. from 10 to 4 p.m. There will be lots of food, plenty of vendors, and lots of activities for the kids. Many of our town committees will be represented with a booth. Come out and find out more about your town. Come and buy a tee shirt.
Do not forget to Vote. This Tuesday, Nov. 8, is election day. There will be no council meeting.
