New Hanover commissioners talk budget, look to renovate office building, discuss WASTEC

Monday, May 21st, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioners talked budget today. One item was the building the county owns at 320 Chestnut Street.

Commissioners voted 3-2, with Brian Berger and Rick Catlin voting against, to move forward with a plan for a $10 million renovation of the water-damaged building. The board also wants to look into leasing out a few floors.

A final vote is expected june 18th.

Commission Chair Ted Davis says the board is trying to put together a budget that will use the revenue neutral tax rate this year and next year.

The budget plan includes the cost of completing CFCC’s Union Station classroom building and starting on the school’s fine arts project.

Commissioners also discussed refurbishing WASTEC. The work on the sustainable energy facility would cost around $27 million.

Commissioner Jason Thompson did not find the idea very appealing, so commissioners scheduled a work session on the issue.

Early start to Hurricane Season not worrying beach visitors

Monday, May 21st, 2012

OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) — With the first tropical storm already off the east coast, many say the 2012 Hurricane Season is starting early, but they’re not worried about it.

Beachgoers on Oak Island say they are going to enjoy the nice weather while it lasts and worry about storms and hurricanes later when they are a bigger threat.

“It’s not near us yet. We go through hurricanes all the time. If it gets closer, preparation’s a good idea, but I’m not worried,” Shannon Gordon said.

Residents say they tend to have supplies available, but that is because they live on the island, not because they are worried about the weather.
