Public Notice
A public hearing on a proposal submitted by Old Dock Cypress Creek Volunteer Fire Department and Auxiliary to extend its service and insurance district. The proposed extension will include any area within 6 miles of 49 Crusoe Island Road that are not currently in the departments’ fire district. If the extension is approved the department will be creating a fire substation that will be located at 49 Crusoe Island Road. Once the fire substation is rated the residents within 5 miles will have the benefits of an ISO class 6 rating residents in the 6 mile area will be in an ISO class 9. These residents are now classified in an unrated fire insurance district which is an ISO class 10. This reclassification should cause a reduction in the fire insurance rates. If the extension is approved all property within this district will be subject to the taxable district which is $0.08 per hundred dollars. The hearing will be conducted by the Columbus County Board of Commissioners, located in the Dempsey B.

Included is a 2010 Oakwood manufactured home bearing serial number ROC723717NCAB. TERMS OF SALE: Pursuant to the provisions of N.C.G.S. ¤45-21.10(b) and the terms of the Deed of Trust, any successful bidder may be required to deposit with the Trustee or Clerk of Superior Court immediately upon the conclusion of the sale a cash deposit to be determined by the greater of 5% of the bid or $750.00. Unless the Substitute Trustee agrees otherwise, the successful bidder will be required to tender the “full purchase price” so bid in cash or certified check at the time the Trustee tenders to him a Deed to the property or attempts to tender such Deed, and should the successful bidder fail to pay the full amount, then the successful bidder shall remain liable as provided for in N.C.G.S. ¤45-21.30. By submitting your bid, you agree that the “full purchase price” shall be defined as the amount of bid plus the Trustee’s commission as defined in the subject Deed of Trust plus the costs of the action, unless the Trustee agrees otherwise. For example, if the amount of bid is $20,000.00 and the trustee’s commission is defined in the subject Deed of Trust as 5% of the gross proceeds of the sale, then the “full purchase price” shall equal $21,000.00 plus the costs of the action. A tender of Deed shall be defined as a letter from the Trustee to the successful bidder offering to record the Deed upon receipt of full purchase price as described herein and listed in said letter. If the trustee is unable to convey title to this property for any reason such as a bankruptcy filing, the sole remedy of the successful bidder is the return of the deposit. As to any manufactured home, the following shall apply: Any not considered real property is being foreclosed pursuant to N.C.G.S. ¤25-9-604, if necessary; there is no warranty that any is actually located on the subject tract; and there is no warranty given by the Substitute Trustee as to whether said home is real property or personal property. The sale will be made subject to all prior liens, unpaid taxes, assessments, restrictions and easements of record, if any.

A draft copy of the Wellhead Protection Plan will be available for review and comment at the county water offices for a period of 15 days. You are invited to review the program, and submit any comments or suggestions to the county.
