No action taken after Manteo emergency meeting

The Manteo Board of Commissioners met in an emergency meeting on Good Friday, March 30. The meeting concerning work at a Shallowbag Bay Club retention pond was held almost entirely in an executive session. No action was taken by the board.

Before commissioners retired behind closed doors to consult with the town attorney via phone, the only explanation offered for the meeting was by Mayor Pro Tem Darrell Collins, who said the board would enter into the executive session to consider accepting stormwater material spoils from Shallowbag Bay Club Retention pond, plus tipping fees from Carolina Marine Structures.

The executive session lasted just under one hour and when the board emerged, Collins said the board would not take any action and called for adjournment. Collins explained after the meeting that there was an issue with how the contract between the town and the contractor was being carried out. “That’s all I can say,” added Collins.
