Please note, we are aware there was a microphone issue at the beginning of the meeting on the podium mic, unfortunately a portion of the public comments is difficult to hear on the video, however a summary is provided from our Town Clerk here: Joe Kearfott of 118 Skimmer Way was recognized to speak. Mr. Kearfott stated that he had communicated with Council a few times with regard to the beach nourishment project. He expressed his appreciation to Town Manager Layton for the professional and open way that he has addressed the issues. He stated that he communicated with 42 property owners that reside in the area north of Oyster Catcher Lane, which has been referred to as the taper area. He stated that he heard back from half of the group and they all support the Town Manager’s recommendation regarding the taper area and the MSD’s. He hoped that Council would conclude that the recommendation was the right one.
