hatteras/ocracoke ferry: free no more?
Linked to the outside world solely through the state’s ferry system, the Hatteras/Ocracoke ferry has always been free. That special status may be coming to an end, as Connie Leinbach reporting for the Ocracoke Observer writes.
“Ocracoke’s day of reckoning may be at hand as early as Wednesday when the Regional Planning Organization may vote to toll the Hatteras Ferry.
That’s what Bill Rich, Hyde County manager, announced tonight at the Ocracoke Civic and Business Association meeting in the Community Center.”
