It was a busy summer and I would like to take this opportunity to thank our entire town staff who worked so hard to make it a great summer for our residents, part-time residents and visitors. Our staff works so well together and I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone for all of their hard work and dedication. Each and every staff member works so hard to make Emerald Isle a great place. As Mayor, it is an honor to serve the citizens of Emerald Isle.
