Kitty Hawk taking applications for town council position

Published 5:46 am Sunday, November 18, 2018

The November 6 election of Ervin Bateman to a Dare County Board of Commissioners at-large seat has in turn created a vacancy on the Kitty Hawk Town Council.

Following the lead of its southern municipal neighbor Kill Devil Hills, the Town of Kitty Hawk is now accepting applications from residents interested in being considered to fill that open town council seat.

“Our thought at the moment is to put out feelers kind of like Kill Devil Hills did and ask for candidates,” said Kitty Hawk Mayor Gary Perry during November 5’s regular town council meeting. “That would give us some time to maybe even take action in December.”
