Right-of-Way Tree Maintenance – Fitness Tree Services will be on the island next week to perform routine preventative maintenance on the Village’s rights-of-way. The focus will be on removing dead and dangerous trees and limbs along the Village’s wynds. No live trees will be intentionally harmed or removed in the process.
Free N95 Masks – Federally provided N95 masks are available at Village Hall, as supplies last. These supplies do not include child-sized masks at this time. Brunswick County Health and Human Services dispersed its full allocation of N95 masks to several of its municipal and senior center partners to improve access countywide. Learn more about N95 and other types of masks HERE. To learn more about where to find free N95 masks in Brunswick County go HERE.
Free At-Home COVID-19 Tests – Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order four free at-home COVID-19 tests. The tests are completely free. Orders will usually ship in 7-12 days. Order your tests now so you have them when you need them. Order your tests through the United States Postal Service (USPS) at covidtests.gov. Find local testing sites HERE.
CodeRED System Test – As previously announced (HERE), the Village will be testing the CodeRED notification system on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. to validate the information in the notification database. No action is needed when you receive the call.
Village Council Meeting & Retreat – The next Village Council meeting is Friday, February 18, 2022, there will be two meetings that day, the annual retreat will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will be followed by the regular meeting at 3:30 p.m. The agenda for the retreat and the regular meeting will be posted HERE. Zoom information for both meetings (same link since they are back-to-back) can be found HERE.
Island-wide Shredding Event – The next island-wide shredding event is on Monday, March 7, 2022. The shred truck is available for Island business entities and individual homeowners to dispose of outdated documents. The shred truck will be parked at the Village’s Marina Park (the old tent site) at approximately 11:00 a.m. and will leave on the 3:00 p.m. barge, so please come by before 2:30 p.m. The cost for disposal will be $10 per box of material (ex. a standard banker’s box or a wine box). Make your checks payable to the Bald Head Island Conservancy. The backup date is Wednesday, March 9th in case the barge is suspended due to weather.
The Village wishes to thank Claude Pope for organizing this event. The Village is compiling records that qualify for disposal and will be requesting the Village Council to approve the record disposal list at next week’s regular meeting.
Island Package Center & Post Office – The Island Package Center & Post Office remains closed on Saturdays. First-class mail will be delivered to post office boxes every Saturday. We apologize for the inconvenience.
