CAROLINA SHORES — The Carolina Shores Board of Commissioners has approved a rezoning measure that will allow more than one dwelling per lot in a section of the town’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.

Approval came at the town board’s monthly meeting Thursday, Nov. 7, to adopt amendments to the town’s Unified Development Ordinance text and zoning map. Specifically, the change is to rezone the Marlowtown Road area from residential (R8) to manufactured home (MFHII) to allow for mobile homes.

Prior to the start of the meeting, the board and town staff paid tribute at a reception to outgoing town administrator Mike Hargett, who participated in his last meeting Thursday night before starting a new job Monday, Nov. 18, as new planning director for Brunswick County.

Town commissioners approved a resolution appointing town finance director Julie Munday as interim town administrator, effective Friday, Nov. 8, to facilitate town operations until a new administrator is hired. The board also approved a salary increase for Munday equivalent to the most recent salary of the town administrator for the duration of her appointment.

In June, the town board approved a 5 percent merit raise for Hargett that boosted his salary to $78,923 annually.

Commissioners also discussed last week placing an ad for the job being vacated by Hargett, who is taking vacation time this week before beginning his new job.

The board also approved resolutions for modifications to the Beacon Townes development plan and accepting dedication of the streets in Beacon Townes and an ordinance adopting regulations for disposition of surplus personal property, aka unneeded town equipment.
