Town Board Meeting Report
From The October 6 Meeting
October 7, 2015

A
damaged dock, Camp Creek and yoga were among the subjects at the October Town Board meeting Tuesday night.

town hall signThe Town Board voted that Pamlico Community College could continue to offer Chair Yoga and T’ai Chi for Arthritis classes at Town Hall. The issue arose after recent objections from two businesses in town where yoga is taught. The Board referred to Town policy that lets all non-profit organizations use Town Hall. Noting that PCC is a non-profit, the Board voted that the classes at Town Hall would continue so long as that policy was in place. (Email correspondence on the matter may be read here.)

The Camp Creek proposal was discussed but a vote on the matter put off for a month or two. In meantime, the Board is asking the Parks and Rec Board to spell out what it would foresee doing with the 5 acres, if accepted. Still no estimate of what costs the Town could incur, in part because of a 100-year old home on the premises. One supporter of accepting the land mentioned last night that the wetlands had been a dump. Still on site are a 1950’s car body and a decades-old boiler, he said.

Town Manager Diane Miller says it’s too soon to have a damage report on what this week’s flooding did to the various town docks and piers. That because the docks are still underwater, she says. On a related note, the Board okayed spending more than $2200 to replace 3 pilings at the Hodges Street Town Dock. They were damaged when a Coast Guard boat took off recently without untying some lines. The Town has tried to contact the Coast Guard to pay. But in meantime, the Board approved payment to get the job done, sometime in next two weeks. The dock remains cordoned off, which Commissioner David White noted was happening just as the busy fall cruising season hits.
