Beach price tag has some concerned

Another NC coastal community struggles with the fate of its beaches.

The Daily News, Jacksonville NC
"The thought of shelling out copious amounts of money to pad North Topsail's withering coastline doesn't make sense to Bob Hale.

For Hale, a town resident, it's a matter of cost.

"We're throwing around millions like it's chump change," Hale said during a town public forum on the issue Thursday night. He cited Onslow County's proposed $90 million school bond and the prospect of higher property taxes following a yet-to-be released revaluation."
