Kitty Hawk Town Council receives beach monitoring report
A large portion of the February 4 Kitty Hawk Town Council meeting saw Ken Willson, with APTIM Coastal Planning and Engineering of North Carolina, Inc., provide council members with an overview of the shoreline monitoring report following a 2017 beach nourishment project.
