A Reminder About Items Left on the Beach
Please remove all personal property from the beach daily – do not leave items on the beach overnight. This ordinance was recently adopted by the Board of Commissioners to help ensure the safety and enjoyment of the beach by all who use it. Chairs, umbrellas, canopies, coolers, etc. can be harmful to people and wildlife. People walking at night, public safety personnel who may have to drive on the beach at night, and hatchling sea turtles that must make their way to the water to survive, all depend on safe, litter-free beach conditions.
To enforce this ordinance, the Town will flag items twice – the first a warning tag and the second advising if the items are left overnight a second time, they will be collected and disposed of as litter. Roving Ocean Rescue Supervisors will attempt to visit the tagged site during the day to answer questions, address the ordinance, and generally make personal contact with the owners.
If the items are left a second night, they will be flagged with a red tag advising owners that the items are now litter and subject to collection, removal & disposal by Town Staff. There will be no opportunity to reclaim disposed-of items.

|Flood Insurance for Business:
Impacts of Recent Legislation
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is in the process of implementing reforms required by the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 & the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Although the 2014 law repeals or modifies some of the provisions of Biggert-Waters, it maintains the requirement that flood insurance rates for business properties in high-risk areas reflect true risk. This means that the subsidized rates that previously applied to some older business buildings will continue to be phased out.
