Carteret County

INTRO – Carteret County has announced an addition to their 9-1-1 service. George Olsen has more.

  This week on the Down East Journal, groups are at odds over the plan to relocate dredging material from Beaufort Inlet to Shackleford Banks.  Would the move impact tourism or help preserve Shackleford’s shoreline from erosion?  More on that story, Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations.  And Saturday at noon on News and Ideas.

In less than a month, Cape Lookout National Seashore is expected to announce the winning bid for a contract to be the sole operator for passenger ferry service to the park.  We explore the ramifications of that plan and talk to the Park Superintendent about how the new ferry service would be implemented.
