Mayor Betty Wallace's
I will use this web page, emails and any other means possible to keep the public informed of all actions of the Oak Island Town Council, and I will be working very hard to encourage members of the public to communicate with our council members so they may govern according to the wishes of the people they serve.
I have formed an informal Mayor's Advisory Group, consisting of individuals who have offered their assistance in gathering information, methods of communication with the public and advice on ways the Mayor can serve as effectively as possible. This will not be an official group of the Town of Oak Island; it will be individuals for advice and suggestions for the Mayor only.
As I stated during my campaign, I will make my administration one of respect and open communication from our Town Council, our Management and our Staff.
I encourage everyone to call me at 278-1803,
email me at email@example.com
or write to me at
Mayor Betty W. Wallace
4601 E. Oak Island Drive
Oak Island NC, 28465
with any questions or concerns, and most especially suggestions for improving the quality of life on Oak Island.
CONTACT YOUR COUNCIL !!
I encourage all of you to contact the members of the Oak Island Town Council with your ideas or concerns. They were elected to represent you and to act in your best interests. The best way for your Council to serve as your representatives is if they hear from their constituency about the issues they are considering.

It was one of my goals to have the entire packets for Town Council Meeting Agenda items online. We needed to wait until we were moved into the new Town Hall and updated our online services. I am so pleased that all who have an interest in the Oak Island Town Council's meetings will be able to view the issues to be discussed in advance of the meetings.

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE REPORT
To the left is a link that is titled "DOC Report" That is the report prepared by the NC Department of Commerce, specifically for the Town of Oak Island, based on our Demographics and our Census. Members of the Department of Commerce visited Oak Island to view the layout of our commercial corridors on Long Beach Road and on E. Oak Island Dr. The report contains information on comparisons to other towns like O.I. and suggestions for making our commercial corridor more tourist friendly.

I try to post updates to current and time sensitive issues on my Facebook page, and long term information here. To receive the updates, please search Facebook for "Mayor Betty Wallace" and send me a Friend request.
I have been getting some great communications, suggestions and yes, complaints on my Facebook page. Please "Friend" me and let's talk !
The new census numbers show that Oak Island has just over 6700 residents? Since the Office of Management and Budget has estimated the 2011 population at 8594, those numbers at first glance seem too low. Did you respond to the census? Were you contacted? Please see the "Census Update" link to the left. A portion of our annual revenues comes from our share of sales taxes, based on population. If that number drops, then during budget time we may have to increase taxes to manage the reduction. Oak Island will be appealing our Census count.
