Ocean Isle Beach commissioners voted to help Jink’s Creek property owners get an engineering study done to see if they can get some dredging done.

Ocean Isle Beach property owners Stephanie Weatherspoon and Randy Simmons asked Ocean Isle Beach Commissioners at their May 9 meeting for help with getting an engineering study done for potential dredging in an area of Jink’s Creek.

Commissioners approved the soliciting of Requests for Qualifications’ (RFQ’s) from engineers to propose engineering services for the possibility of a dredging project from the intercoastal waterway near the Odell Williamson Bridge, east to Jinks Creek Waterfront Grille and west to Asheville Street.
