Interlocal agreement

City commissioners approved an interlocal agreement with the county that amends a previous agreement concerning the annexation of WindMark Beach.

City commissioners approved language stating that county residents would be charged the same as city residents for water and sewer – critical for the Board of County Commissioners – and otherwise validated amendments approved by the county.

Among those would be deeding over the TDC Welcome Center building to the county, assuming firefighting responsibilities in Oak Grove and establishing a water rescue unit along coastal areas within the city.

Water line replacement in NPSJ

Finally receiving a notice to proceed from USDA Rural Development on a project to replace sidewalks on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., the city is now poised to proceed with much-needed water line replacement on the north end of town.

The water line replacement, part of the initial phase of replacement, had been held up for at least two months as the city awaited word on the separate MLK sidewalk project.
