WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – One beach town in our area has been over paying for its sewer service for years, to the tune of $350,000.

Kure Beach buys the service from Carolina Beach. Because Carolina Beach has had some turnover in its leadership over recent years, it took three years for Kure and Carolina Beaches to finally fix the problem.

Now, Mayor Dean Lambeth says he's expecting a check from Carolina Beach. That extra cash can pay for new sewer pipes in the south end of Kure Beach.

Carolina Beach Mayor Bob Lewis tells us the money won't hurt anyone's budget because it comes from the overall sewer service fund of nearly $6 million.
