KURE BEACH, NC (WECT) -

Council members in Kure Beach voted Friday afternoon 3-2 to dissolve the Stormwater and Environmental Committee.

The committee was created in 2006 after a state ordinance mandated the education of safe stormwater practices.

According to Mayor Dean Lambeth, five members of the committee resigned over personal issues.

Committee secretary Mo Linquist said she was the first and the others followed in a domino effect. Linquist says she resigned because her beliefs differed from the mayor regarding environmental concerns, specifically seismic testing.

She said the committee was dissolved because it had a different view than the mayor did. According to Lambeth, the committee did not get much accomplished.

He said they were addressing various issues outside of Kure beach's jurisdiction.

According to Lambeth, the town's public works director handles most of the responsibilities the committee was intended for and will take over storm water education.

Linquist hopes the town will continue environmental education and protection the committee had been working on even though the committee was dissolved.
