THANK YOU- Hurricane Dorian clean-up efforts continue! 


The Mayor, Board of Commissioners, and Town staff wish to thank all Emerald Isle property owners for their assistance related to Hurricane Dorian 2019 clean-up efforts. 

Following the September 5, 2019 tornado, Public Works immediately began removing FEMA funded construction debris that was placed on public roadways.  The primary impact area included Boardwalk, Islander and Reed Drives. Thankfully, the City of New Bern, the City of Jacksonville and several local contractors helped our team clear 513 tons of C & D material in less than 10-days. 

Locally, the Town of Emerald Isle owns two (2) knuckle-boom service trucks.  Both of these trucks have worked 5-6 days per week collecting vegetative debris.  An average of 75-100 stops are being made per day.  Since September 17, 2019, the EI Public Works department has removed over 599 tons of vegetative debris in just six-weeks! 

Due to the sheer volume of vegetative material being placed at the street, the debris collection process is taking substantial time and resources.  We have coordinated (once more) with the City of New Bern to rent a third knuckle-boom service truck.  The additional truck will be placed into service tomorrow morning (10/22/19) and will certainly aid in the volume of material collected each day. 

We truly appreciate your patience and understanding.  Along with your help, our team will continue to keep Emerald Isle beautiful.

Nice Matters!

Artie Dunn

Public Works Director
