The Village of Bald Head Island, with a year-round population of less than 170 people, has approved a $10 million bond for a broadband network. But barely. The “yes” vote squeaked through by four votes – not unusual, though, in a small municipality.
Village residents will see a new slate of council members. The two incumbents running for reelection, Gene Douglas and Bob Helgesen, lost their seats to top vote-getters Kit Adcock, John May, and John Pitera.
