Budget lacks funds for Emerald Isle Pier

 Budget lacks funds for Emerald Isle Pier

Information obtained from the Tideland News – June 12, 2012

The House of Representatives proposed budgets for 2012-2013 does not include any money for continued development of the ocean fishing pier planned in partnership with the N.C. Aquariums on Emerald Isle NC.  The pier project is to be built on the site of the old Emerald Isle NC fishing pier, which is now being used as Emerald Isle NC’s Eastern Regional Beach Access Facility.  Furthermore the state House budget specifically prohibits any state expenditure on fishing piers other than the existing N.C. Aquarium pier at Nags Head.  Town Manager, Frank Rush, expresses his disappointment that the funding just isn’t there to continue with the pier project at this time, “We’re obviously very disappointed, but we realize the difficult time the state is in financially, so we understand.  But we certainly hope that things get better so the project can move forward.”
