The decision to run another study about a potential outlying landing field site in Eastern Carolina has been deemed a waster of time and taxpayer money by the leader of the State Senate.
The Navy announced it will conduct another study on the effect an OLF would have on birds at Hales lake in Camden County. State Senate leader Marc Basnight wrote to members of the state's congressional delegation that the navy should save the money it would spend on studying Hales lake, since the people there do not want an OLF, according to the Daily Advance.
Also Monday, Camden and Currituck County Commissioners will hold a public hearing about the outlying landing field. It's at 3 this afternoon at the Currituck Cooperative Extension Office in Barco.
