Residents Vote On Beach Nourishment

Residents in Dare County went to the polls Tuesday to vote for or against the one-percent beach nourishment tax. The tax was enacted on January first. The now eight-cents on the dollar could generate $11,000,000 annually for a variety of applications regarding beach nourishment. Proponents say nourishment is critical to the tourist economy. Critics say it benefits beachfront property owners at the expense of all residents.
