To the editor: I am writing in response to the article in the Beacon titled “Sunset Beach working to buy boat ramp, park site.”
Our wonderful town council is pursing a deal to purchase a 5-acre tract near the waterway for a mere $5 million, in addition to purchasing the area on which the old Italian restaurant once stood for approximately $2 million dollars.
What is going on? One million dollars an acre? Why does our council feel the need to spend all of this money during these economic times; this money, by the way, comes from town taxpayers.
