What happens if I don’t pay a ticket in Wrightsville Beach for having a dog on the beach?

Town staff can send unpaid tickets to a collection agency or a state program known as NC Debt Setoff.

That program, according to Town Manager Tim Owens, uses a person’s state income tax returns to pay for the unsettled debt.

In other words, it’s better to pay your ticket now.


Smoking is prohibited on the ‘dry sand’ parts of Wrightsville Beach. What about the wet sand?

Would Wrightsville Beach consider selling yearly parking passes to New Hanover County residents?
