  • Town of Shallotte to adopt new sewer transmission fee policy

    SHALLOTTE—Town aldermen have decided to revise the sewer transmission fee policy that developers have been complaining about for months.

    Last Wednesday, the board instructed town administrator Paul Sabiston to prepare a resolution to be adopted at next week’s pre-agenda meeting. The new policy would require developers to pay $60,000 for 60 units at the time they request preliminary plat approval and another $60,000 when they start the next phase.

    “It prevents somebody with 200 units asking to pay for 10 now and the others later,” Sabiston explained.
