Items approved in the consent agenda included July 5 council meeting minutes, a $3,886 budget amendment encumbrance for a FEMA grant for fire department radio replacements, police department donations of $100 from Craig T. Mathias, $50 from Patrick and Barbara Wilkerson and $100 from Joe Lamb Realty and Associates, Inc. to be used for automated external defibrillator supplies and acceptance of a $4,875 Sunshine Contracting and Construction LLC bid to demolish a structure at 4240 N. Virginia Dare Trail.

After a brief review of details from Rob Testerman, Kitty Hawk director of planning and inspections, council approved a special use permit for an existing two story structure at 5121 North Croatan Highway to be a medical office for plastic surgery along with some spa services such as massage and facial treatments. Surgeries are to be performed at the hospital with only minor procedures that do not require anesthesia performed on location.

The 5-0 vote of approval included a requirement that any site development in excess of the standard 60 percent lot coverage limit would require use of permeable pavement.

The final action item for the evening saw council schedule a September 6 public hearing for proposed reclassification of several permitted and special uses.

During public comments, there were also comments in favor of allowing more outdoor gatherings and itinerant merchants.

Mayor Craig Garriss advised that council and staff are looking at those regulations.

During his closing comments for the evening, Garriss also noted that there will be a 1:30 p.m. beach re-nourishment public meeting at Town Hall on Wednesday, August 3 and because Labor Day in the first Monday in September, the next regular town council meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6.
