Immediate Storm Aftermath—

Please remember the final wind effects of any storm may not arrive and pass until well after the first effects are felt. Please do not risk walking outside and under tree canopies until the storm is well over and streets have been safely cleared.

In the aftermath of any storm which requires the removal of damaged or threatening trees from a private yard, before engaging any tree removal contractor, please (1) ask for company contact information and confirm references, (2) ask for evidence of insurance, and (3) get several quotes from different companies. Please be wary of any “hard sale” or pressure techniques.

6/26/17 **The street contractor has informed the Town it will need to actually close traffic today through tomorrow as the last act of paving for the Juniper Trail improvement project. Signs will go up as before when the street is closed.
Change in Beach Nourishment Schedule – Nourishment of the Kitty Hawk/Southern Shores beaches is now scheduled to commence in early August. Given the haul distance from Borrow Area A to KDH is significantly shorter than the distance to KH, GLDD is strongly considering constructing KDH before they do Kitty Hawk and Southern Shores. The shorter distance is more conducive to the smaller dredges and they want to maximize their production while the Dodge and Padre are on site.
