Play money is coming to Dare County
And, it will be done regardless of how the majority of Dare residents feel about it. With the new occupancy tax increase, Judge now has a way to spend $35-$40 million in Nags Head, not for the majority who thinks the sand will quickly wash away, but for a small minority who bed down away from the Outer Banks and have nightmares about whether their personal investments might one day wash into the sea.
For Judge, and elected officials like, Nags Head Commissioners Renee Cahoon, Anna Sadler, Bob Oakes and Kill Devil Hills Mayor Ray Sturza, along with the special interest business associations, to name a few, it has been a long dream. Untold dollars have been spent to date, getting us to the point where "everyone" can finally "protect the revenue stream" that flows through all these peoples' pockets. So folks, no matter how much of that revenue stream flows through your pocket, even if its only a trickle, just be thankful that those who have made the Outer Banks into what it is today, are finally able to say, "we got beach nourishment!"
