Local Papers…Results Are In…The Hi-Riser….

THE DOGGY BEACH……IS “OFFICIALLY SCRAPPED”….

‘POLL ENDS DOG BEACH PROPOSAL’….by Maria Chercoles…10/23/08….

Why it was the front page story for this week’s Hi-Riser is curious…and not announced from the dais by the Town Manager…at the 1st regular Commission meeting this month….but the “scrapped” idea was “official” after the results of the 1st Town Topics Straw Poll…173 against…66 for….with a report of numerous calls to Commissioners …concerns at the CIC Town Meeting…other local papers getting on the bandwagon a few months back…before the August recess…and tidbits in the BTSTimes…taking aim at Comm. Dodd….when it was MacMillan pal McIntee who started the whole thing…in 2006…previous posts…feigning “political ignorance” after pushing Dodd to bring it back….. pre- election …. voting for it before he voted against…FLIP-FLOPPER…

This was the first Straw Poll…which was Comm. Dodd’s idea…and even with this defeat…he was pleased with the resident’s response to have their opinions heard…and hopes that the Straw Poll forum will continue to be used for other important items requiring the people’s input….

‘Town to name new Hillsboro Inlet district commissioner’…by Elizabeth Roberts

Looks like one member…from Hillsboro stopped coming…for a year…that is after being a member for 29 years…..obviously no term limits for this commission…you remain on it until someone appoints your replacement….the commission is comprised of members from 6 municipalities…and 2 state interests…Comm. Dodd is the new member from LBTS….and much has been made of the health insurance he receives as a perk for serving…according to the article…the policy has a $1500 deductible for each year….not sure how that compares to the LBTS program now offered to the Commissioners courtesy of their vote…at the beginning of their term….
